President Rodrigo Duterte confirmed on Thursday he offered Senator Gregorio Honasan II the Department of Information and Communications secretary post.

“I think he’s considering the possibility. Ako naman, I invited him,” Duterte said in an ambush interview in Malay, Aklan.

“Sabi ko, if you are doing anything and if you will not run again. So why don’t you join me in a quest for a better Philippines and a better government,” the chief executive said.

Earlier, Senate President Vicente Sotto III said Honasan will leave the Upper House to join the Duterte Cabinet.

Meanwhile, Duterte said he is “not sure” if the former Army colonel will accept his appointment.
