President Benigno Simeon Aquino III skipped the ceremony in Tacloban to commemorate supertyphoon Yolanda to attend the wedding of tycoon Andrew Tan’s youngest son, Kester.
Kester married Kelsey Cheng at the St. Therese of the Child Jesus Shrine in Newport City, Pasay City.
The Philippine Daily Inquirer today reported that Aquino was joined by Cabinet Secretary Rene Almendras and House speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr.
In lieu of his attendance, Aquino issued a statement that was read by Malacanang spokesperson Edwin Lacierda on the government-run Radyo ng Bayan.
In the statement, Aquino said: “We pause in prayer for the loved ones we lost, and pay tribute to the soldiers and civilians who placed themselves in danger to help their fellow man.”
Aquino presumably said his prayers that day in the church built by Megaworld.
