Order to investigate murder of PUP VP Augustus Cezar comes from the top

Why does the Philippine President himself need to "order" the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to conduct a "probe" on the murder of Polytechnic University of the Philippines vice president for administration Augustus Cezar? Isn't that a job that law enforcement agencies do even without prompting?
“We will be helping the Manila Police District in investigating the death of Cezar since we were tasked by President [Benigno "Noynoy"] Aquino to determine who were the perpetrators behind the slay of Cezar,” said NBI director Magtanggol Gatdula.

Tough luck, I guess, for all the other Filipinos who had been murdered. Philippine law enforcement officials, it seems, don't act unless orders to do so are issued from the very top.
