OUTGOING Customs Commissioner Nicanor Faeldon said President Rodrigo Duterte’s acceptance of his resignation was best for the country in the midst of the controversy and public uproar over the P6.4 billion “shabu” shipment that slipped past the Customs zone. “My relief from my post is the best for our country. I urge everyone to continue to support the reform agenda and the development programs of the President,” Faeldon said in a statement on Tuesday. “I thank everyone who has supported the Bureau of Customs during my stay and I appeal to the BOC employees and to the public to support the new commissioner.”Duterte named Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) chief Isidro Lapeña to replace Faeldon.
