According to Presidential Security Group (PSG) Commander Brig. General Jose Niembra, President Duterte decided to sleep again after he felt the strong quake.
“Ok lang naman wala naman damage house pero pa check pa rin sructural integrity. PRRD ok lang natulog uli after the quake,” Niembra said.
Several netizens also criticized the President after the revelation of Niembra, one even saying that PSG commander should look for a new job for telling the truth.
“My prayers are with you, PSG Commander Brig. Gen. Jose Eriel Niembra. Sana makahanap po kayo ng bagong work agad,” @miaMagdalena said.

Despite sleeping after the quake, President Duterte then ordered a 24/7 assistance to the quake victims.
Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles also said that the President is monitoring the situation of the affected areas.
“President Duterte is closely monitoring the progress of ongoing operations to thoroughly evaluate the damage of the quake and all ground units are ordered to work round-the-clock to make sure that everyone is safe and are ready for possible aftershocks,” Nograles said.
