Prior to her tendering of resignation as House Secretary of President Rodrigo Duterte's cabinet, Vice President Leni Robredo received negative comments attesting that she did not work well during her term as Housing chair.
The President himself and his Cabinet members can testify that she never fell short of duty, according to Robredo.
On a press conference, the Vice President said that she firmly believes that her exclusion from the Cabinet meetings has nothing to do with her work as chair of the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC).
"Before I went down... tinitingnan ko pa lang yung statements pareho silang nagsasabi na they recognize the good things I did with Housing. Wala silang problema do'n. In fact inextoll nila 'yung lahat kong ginawa. Kasi I think everyone in the Cabinet, even those na ayaw sa'kin, would say na pinakita ko kung gaano ako kagrabe magtrabaho. Pinakita ko kung gaano ko pinaglaban yung issues patungkol sa housing," she said.
"So ako I don't think even the President or anyone in the Cabinet can say na nagkulang ako," she added.
Based on her statement last Sunday about her resignation, Robredo expressed that she never wanted it to have happened, as she admitted that it can lead to losing the President's trust.
"'Yung sa akin, I really serve at the pleasure of the President, so 'pag nagpakita ng indikasyon ang Presidente na wala na siyang confidence sa akin, tingin ko obligasyon kong umalis kahit ayokong umalis," she said.
"Kasi kung tatanungin n'yo 'ko, ayaw ko sanang umalis sa aking posisyon, ngayon pa na nakita ko na kung gaano kalaki yung problema, ngayon pa na kung ano yung kaya kong gawin sa Housing," she added.
Meanwhile, Robredo still hopes that her vice presidency will not be "stolen" from her even though it faces more threats now than before.
