MANILA– President Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday said he intends to issue an order barring the display of his pictures and those of other officials in state offices.

The chief executive who, at the start of his term, mandated his cabinet to keep a low profile, said he wants photos of the country’s heroes to be displayed instead.

“Nabuang man ang mga ganoong tao. Doon mo iyan ilagay sa pamilya niyo, sa sala,” Duterte said in speech in Malacañang. 

“I’ll issue the order. Gusto ko ang mga hero natin [ang ilagay], para ma-emulate ng mga bata. 'Yung iba sa picture, ilang beses nang dumaan ng graft and corruption sa kaso eh,” said the President, who is pursuing a fierce crackdown on corrupt officials.
