“I have the discretion to extend even beyond retirement age. Marami pa kasi akong gawin. I want to do some things in Mindanao of utmost importance and I need to extend the tour of duty of Gen.

“Wala pa. I usually do not interfere. I don’t know. They have a sort of an entity wherein the PNP is tasked with reviewing the senior officers’ promotion parang board of generals,” he said.
