MANILA - Vice President Leni Robredo on Monday thanked her staff at the Office of the Vice President as she acknowledged that she is a "demanding" boss especially for projects during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Parang I feel so guilty na ako siguro ang nag-stretch nang grabe sa inyo. Pero having said that, yung kasalanan, nasa akin. Pero ako, sobrang proud ako sa inyong lahat. Lalo na yung pandemic, marami sa atin ginawa yung trabaho na hindi na niya trabaho,” Robredo said.

Roberedo spent her whole afternoon giving awards to staff as well as recognizing almost everyone by asking them to join her on stage.

"Ang nakikita lang ng marami, ako Pero hindi nila alam na kaya ko nagagawa ang trabaho ko, dahil sa inyo. Maraming, maraming salamat sa inyo," the vice president said.

Robredo also said that she is proud to have professionalized the OVP even though she earned the ire of some of her friends.

"Hindi ako nakialam sa kahit anong hiring, kahit anong promotion. Maraming nagalit sa akin na kaibigan na ipinapakiusap ang mga anak nila na makapasok sa atin, pero hindi ko iyon ginawa. And ako, nagpapasalamat ako ngayon na hindi ko ginawa, kasi isa siya sa mga bagay na dahilan bakit na-professionalize iyong opisina natin, na hindi pulitika ang basehan," she said.

Robredo's term ends on Thursday. She will be succeeded by Vice President-elect Sara Duterte.
