Agri Secretary Manny Piñol starts 'real' work after CA confirmation

THE CA CONFIRMATION IS DONE;
NOW, REAL HARD WORK BEGINS

After a deferment of over one month, the Commission on Appointments (CA) finally confirmed my appointment as regular Secretary of the Department of Agriculture.

In a strange twist, it was Cong. Josephine Ramirez-Sato, the very same solon who earlier asked for the deferment on December 13, who this time moved for the approval of my confirmation.

My second appearance in the Committee hearing took less than five minutes and I did not even utter a single word.

In the plenary deliberation of my confirmation, I was touched by the nomination speech of Cavite Congressman Abraham "Bambol" Tolentino and the support manifested by Senator Franklin Drilon, Sen. Miguel Zubiri, Sen. Francis Pangilinan and Sen. Ralph Recto.

Now that I am no longer an "Endo" Secretary of Agriculture, a lot is expected from me and the Department of Agriculture.

I will, of course, do my best not only to give justice to the trust of President Rody Duterte and the members of the Commission on Appointments but mainly because the Filipino farmers and fisher folks and the Filipino people who depend on the food they produce are expecting so much from President Rody Duterte and the DA.
