Talkative no more: Piñol chooses Facebook over media interviews
After being described as “talkative” by President Duterte, Agriculture Secretary Manny Piñol is apparently limiting his public comments about his resignation.
Piñol has chosen Facebook to write a post about his resignation as agriculture chief, as he declined to grant any more media interviews.
“To my friends in the media, President Rody Duterte has described me as “just talkative,” so there will be less audio coming from my side from now on,” he said.
“Also, to those who would like to set interviews with me to discuss my offer to resign which I submitted to the President through Senator Bong Go yesterday, I am sorry but I will not give any statement on the matter,” he added.
