Benigno 'Noynoy' Aquino III has vowed to complete the distribution of over a million hectares of private lands during the five-year extension period of the agrarian reform law.
Noynoy Aquino has said that he has asked his “extended family” to find ways and means to transfer the assets of Hacienda Luisita to farmer beneficiaries.
In the State of the Nation Address of President Aquino, he urged Congress to review the Commonwealth-era National Defense Act to make it more relevant to the current times.
Aquino said the Philippine National Games will be re-launched as a venue for national try-outs for athletes to become part of the Philippine team.
Aquino, in his speech at the opening of the “Palarong Pambansa 2012,” said the government has set aside P5 million to fund establishments of sports events for persons with disabilities and prison inmates.
