The Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte will not hesitate to declare a state of emergency to call out if the drugs problem in the country escalates.

That said Duterte Saturday, a month after he reports that he possible would want to do, rationalizing it as “nonsense”.

Duterte went into an elaborate explanation about his fight against drugs, in a speech to members of a chamber of commerce in the southern city of Davao.

He vowed that the country will protect against all threats, such as drugs. “If I want it, and when it’s completely the wrong way, that I will declare a state of emergency. Nobody can make me stop.”

Duterte since his presidency mid-2016 embarked on a war against drugs. More than six thousand people have been killed in his battle against drugs and more than a million drug dealers and users are arrested.
