KAMI learned that Robredo has given detailed reasons as to why she took the job offer.

In a report by the GMA News, a copy of the full statement given by Robredo was released to the reporters.

Hindi naman ako nagpahayag ng aking mga puna sa drug war dahil naghahabol ako ng puwesto. Hindi ko hiniling ito. Sa Pangulo nanggaling ang ideyang ito.
Pero sa dulo, ang pinakamahalagang konsiderasyon para sa akin ay simple lang: kung ito ang pagkakataon para matigil ang patayan ng mga inosente at mapanagot ang mga kailangang managot, papasanin ko ito. Kaya tinatanggap ko ang trabaho na binibigay sa akin ng Pangulo.”

“Mula simula, ang gusto ko ay ang maging maayos ang kampanya laban sa iligal na droga. Itigil ang pagpatay sa mga inosente. Panagutin ang mga abusadong opisyal tulad ng mga ninja cops at mga nagpalusot ng tone-toneladang shabu. Bigyan ng hustisya at boses ang mga pamilya ng mga pinaslang na walang kasalanan. Habulin ang mga malalaking drug lords na talagang sumisira sa ating lipunan, hindi lang ang maliliit na nagtutulak sa kanto-kanto.”

“Hindi laro-laro ang usapang ito. Seryosong usapan kapag buhay ang nakataya. Tinatanong nila ako kung handa ba ako para sa trabahong ito.
Ang tanong ko: handa ba kayo para sa akin?
Mr. President, dalawa’t kalahating taon na lang ang naiiwan sa iyong administrasyon. Hindi pa naman huli ang lahat.
Puwede pa nating pagtulungan ito.”
