President Duterte has announced plans to designate Army chief Lt. Gen. Rolando Bautista as the next National Food Authority (NFA) administrator when he retires next month.

The President said he wanted Bautista to rationalize the “idiotic” structure in the NFA and ensure a stable supply of rice in the country.

Bautista, former Presidential Security Group (PSG) commander, is scheduled to retire from service next month.

A graduate of the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) in 1985, Bautista will take the place of NFA administrator Jason Aquino who recently offered to be relieved from his post last week. Aquino has drawn criticisms for the recent shortage of NFA rice that triggered price hikes in the market.

“NFA ka na. Mabait yan si Rolly [You’ll be assigned in NFA. Rolly is good],” the President told Bautista during the government’s disaster response meeting in typhoon-hit Cagayan.
