Going international! Duterte appoints Gibo Teodoro’s wife as special envoy to UNICEF
Former Tarlac Rep. Monica Louise “Nikki” Prieto-Teodoro, is back in government, though she’s now part of the executive branch.
President Rodrigo Duterte has named Teodoro, wife of former Defense Secretary Gilbert “Gibo” Teodoro, as his special envoy to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).
Interestingly, Teodoro’s appointment paper was dated March 9, 2018 though her term is from September 26, 2017 to September 27, 2018.
There were rumors last year that Teodoro was eyed as Social Welfare Secretary after Judy Taguiwalo failed to hurdle the Commission on Appointments.
However, the post is now said to be Senator Loren Legarda’s.
