MANILA, July 17 –- President Benigno Simeon "Noynoy" Aquino III is getting ready for his first State of the Nation Address (SONA), which he will deliver to the 15th Congress when it opens on July 26.

Herminio “Sonny” Coloma, a member of President Aquino's Communication Group, on Saturday said the chief executive has been holding meetings with various department secretaries since June 30, discussing the content of his SONA,

“What I know is that the President wants to find out from each Cabinet member what’s going on and what’s really happening around the country. Almost everybody have already submitted a report,” Coloma, a former undersecretary of the of the Department of Transportation and Communications, said over DZRB Radio ng Bayan.

He said he does know the specific itinerary of President Aquino a week before the SONA, but what he knew of was that the Chief Executive was very busy preparing for it.

Coloma, also a newspaper columnist of a business daily, said President Aquino has already indicated to his Cabinet the "structure and tone" for his address, adding that the Cabinet will take on the initial draft of the presidential speech in next week's meetings. (PNA) V3/RMA/JCA
