CBCP head calls for truthful SONA

Filed under: Headlines |

A ranking Catholic bishop called on President Benigno Aquino III to reveal the country’s real situation when he delivered his third State of the Nation Address (SONA) on July 23.

Cebu Archbishop Jose Palma, president of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), made the appeal on Aquino, saying it is important for the Filipinos to know the truth.

“We only seek for the truth… the real situation of the country. We aspire for the good of the many,” Palma said.

On Sunday, Deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said that speechwriters are still at work on the SONA’s contents one week before the event.

She added that the only clear detail is that Paul Cabral shall be the one designing the chief executive’s barong tagalong for the occasion.

Aside from being truthful, Palma said they are also hoping that the SONA would be the one that can unite and inspire the country.

“Marami pang problems at concerns but when we solicit the cooperation of many, who have the competence, and encourage people to collaborate and work together, makakapagbigay tayo ng solusyon sa karamihan ng ating problema,” he said. (CBCPNews)
