Philippine National Police OIC Deputy Director General Leonardo Espina offered his resignation as PNP OIC to President Aquino. This was confirmed by the President himself during a press briefing in Tarlac.
However, Aquino said he is yet to accept the resignation while the hunt for next PNP chief is still ongoing. He added that General Espina is not among the list of possible next PNP chief.
He said that appointing Espina will be “disruptive to the service” because the General is retiring in three months time.
Aside from being the current officer-in-charge, General Espina is currently The Deputy Chief for Administration.
