PNoy sick, cancels Ilocos Sur trip
MANILA – President Benigno Aquino III cancelled his trip to Ilocos Sur on Thursday due to sickness, a Palace spokesperson said.
In a text message, Deputy Presidential Abigail Valte said Aquino will not be able to attend the inauguration of Aluling bridge in Ilocos Sur since he is feeling under the weather.
Valte said the president will instead be represented by his sister, Viel Aquino-Dee, accompanied by Public Works Secretary Rogelio Singson and Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin.
"The President will instead remain in Manila to take a bit of rest," Valte said. – report from Willard Cheng, ABS-CBN News
