 Presidential Executive Secretary Vic Rodriguez has stepped down from his post.

"I have asked permission to step down as Executive Secretary," he wrote in a Facebook post

He explained, "The work of an Executive Secretary is a 24/7 job with myriad topics expected to be attended to every day. It demands a sense of urgency which essentially requires almost all of a public servant’s time to ensure that services are met and delivered."

Press Secretary Trixie Cruz-Angeles also confirmed the news that Rodriguez has resigned.

“We confirm reports that Atty Vic Rodriguez has stepped down as Executive Secretary,” Angeles-Cruz said.

Rodriguez said he would continue serving the government as the Presidential Chief of Staff. 

He thanked Marcos Jr. for the opportunity to hold the post for nearly three months.

“There is nothing more rewarding than answering the call to serve the country, a rare privilege not extended to all but was given to me by the President,” Rodriguez said. 

“I thank the President for his continuing trust and his sincere understanding of my decision. To the Filipino people, I shall continue serving you and the country as the Presidential Chief of Staff,” he added.

However, Rodriguez said that he wanted to prioritize time with his family. 

"Equally valuable, however, is to witness firsthand your young family grow and evolve into how every parent would wish them to become and they most need me too."

His resignation comes weeks following the sugar order fiasco.

Rodrigues who served as Marcos' campaign spokesperson and chief of staff has finished his law from the University of Santo Tomas and received Executive Education at the National University of Singapore (NUS) Negotiation and Influence Program.
