Aquino SONA speech under wraps

Malacanang is keeping President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III’s State of the Nation Address (SONA) speech under wraps to avoid a media leakage incident like what happened last year.

“We’ve discussed several measures on how to avoid a leakage. It's now being finalized to make sure that what we’ll be doing will not be prematurely leaked to anyone,” Presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda said.

Last year, Aquino’s first SONA speech was circulated in the internet even before Aquino was able to finish his speech. It was posted in a Facebook account of a television network. This drew flak from other media organizations.

“So I can assure you that this time around, there will be no premature leaks of the SONA speech,” Lacierda added.
