The tradition continues: PNoy to skip Duterte’s 2nd SONA
Former President Benigno Aquino III will not be attending President Rodrigo Duterte’s second State of the Nation Address on July 24, Politiko has learned.
According to Politiko’s source, Aquino has sent his regrets to the team handling the SONA preparations because he will skip the red-letter occasion.
The former President, however, plans to watch Duterte’s speech on television.
Aquino was also a no-show when Duterte delivered his first SONA last year.
He was the only living former President who was not at Batasang Pambansa for the event.
