MANILA — President Rodrigo Duterte on Saturday said he is willing to offer former whistleblower Sandra Cam a Cabinet post if she asks for it.

“If she asks for the work, I’ll give her the work,” Duterte told reporters in Baguio City.

The president said he wants to follow through on his promise to repay Cam for her help during the campaign period last year.

“She helped me during the last election . . . Ako tumulong siya at tutulungan ko siya. Utang na loob 'yan,” he said.

(She helped and I will help her. It's a debt of gratitude.)

“Yung pagtulong naman niya, she came out really. Sabi niya magtulong siya sa kampanya and she did campaign so yan ang promise ko sa kanya,” Duterte said.

(She said she will help in the campaign and she did. So that's my promise to her.)

Duterte did not say though what specific post he has for Cam, saying his Cabinet is currently full at the moment.
