Fresh start! Erwin Tulfo set to head PCOO, Andanar off to new gov’t post?
Another Tulfo is reportedly set to join the Cabinet with broadcaster Erwin Tulfo replacing Martin Andanar as Communications Secretary.
Rumors are rife that Tulfo will take over the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) since Andanar will be given another government post.
While both media personalities earlier played coy about the PCOO appointment, talk about Tulfo’s new post swirled anew after Andanar hinted of “minor changes” in the Cabinet soon.
Andanar didn’t give a categorical answer in an interview on dzMM radio when asked id he would be part of the revamp, saying he was happy to serve as PCOO chief for three years.
“Kung anuman ang gusto ni Presidente, if he wants to move me to this position or that position, we serve at the pleasure of the President,” he said.
Tulfo was in hot water last May for cursing Social Welfare Secretary Rolando Bautista on his radio program over the state-run dzRB.
The broadcaster apologized for the incident but Bautista demands a public apology and a multimillion-peso donation to certain organizations.
Erwin’s brother, Mon, is President Rodrigo Duterte’s Special Envoy to China.
