MANILA -- The Cabinet secretaries of President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III will undergo a seminar on how to handle media.

In an ambush interview during the 63rd anniversary of Philippine Air Force, the President said it is important that his Cabinet men have good relations to the media, which serves as their mouthpiece in conveying their agenda to the people.

“The seminar will be had by most of the Cabinet members especially those who are new to government,” he said.

Aquino decided to submit his Cabinet to a training on how to treat the media following two unpleasant encounters between the media and two of his newly-inducted secretaries.

“(The seminar is) how to handle the media, how to improve relations with everybody. Kasi di naman normal skills, hindi naman tinuturo sa eskuwela how to get the message across,” he stressed. (Jill Beltran/Sunnex)
