MANILA, July 26 -– President Benigno C. Aquino III earned two thumbs up from both civic and militant groups on Monday afternoon after the Chief Executive delivered his first State of the Nation Address (SONA) at the Batasan Hills in Novaliches, Quezon City.

Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (BAYAN) secretary-general Renato Reyes said President Aquino should walk the talk in his highly-touted anti-corruption campaign.

“Institutions for accountability have been damaged and undermined by the previous government,” he said.

After listening to the SONA of President Aquino, Reyes lauded the efforts to reveal the misdeeds of the former Arroyo government but lamented the lack of action plan in running after the crooks in the past administration.

For his part, government employee Felix de Silva of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) said President Aquino is only telling the truth. “He’s not an alarmist,” he added. (PNA) LOR/JCA
