Department of Agriculture Secretary Manny Piñol was interviewed by Queen of all Media, Kris Aquino, during the Go Negosyo Forum in SMX Convention Center at Lanang Davao last Friday, November 11.
A part of the show became awkward when Aquino responded to Sec. Piñol's remarks about his actions to the people of Leyte who asked him to revive the Abaca industry on their place.
Piñol told Kris Aquino:
Ma’am alam mo totoo lang eto ang nakikita ko eh, wag lang natin pakialaman ang pera ng gobyerno, maraming pera para sa tao. Wag lang natin nakawin. And this I found out in the short time I was appointed by President Duterte [as] Secretary of Agriculture.Then Kris responded by saying,
Sec... Di naman kami nagnakaw... [audience laughs]But then, Sec. Piñol immediately clarified that his remarks are not for his brother, former President Benigno Aquino III.
Kindly watch the video below of the said awkward moment.
