Duterte leads PSG turnover to new commander
President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday led the change of command of the Presidential Security Group.
Duterte, who had just gotten back from his trip to Thailand, was at the PSG Grandstand on Thursday afternoon to witness the turnover of command from BGen. Rolando Joselito D. Bautista to Col. Lope C. Dagoy.
Duterte was still in Bangkok when Dagoy was announced as the new PSG head.
Dagoy is the President’s senior military adviser and a member of the Philippine Military “Hinirang” Class of 1987.
Meanwhile, Bautista has been assigned to head the army’s 1st Infantry Division in Pagadian City, Zamboanga del Sur. He was a former commander of the 104th Brigade in Basilan and the 73rd Infantry Battalion in Davao.
Dagoy used to be the chief of staff of Eastern Mindanao Command (Eastmincom) head Lt. Gen. Rey Leonardo Guerrero. Eastmincom is based in Davao City where Duterte served as mayor for more than two decades. IDL
