President-elect Rodrigo Duterte has offered the post of secretary of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) to anti-mining advocate Gina Lopez.
“I offered the position of the DENR to Ms. Gina Lopez,” Duterte said in a video released to the media by Radio TV Malacañang (RTVM) on Monday.
The announcement was made after Lopez met with Duterte at the Presidential Guest House in Davao City.
Lopez said she is seriously considering the post but has yet to decide.
“I am honored with the trust given, this proposal, and I will seriously, seriously consider it,” she said.
Lopez is the chairperson of ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation.
