Netizens rejoice as PNoy’s absence at the 3rd SONA of PRRD was confirmed

In the recent news article of GMA, it read and reported about former President Benigno Simeon Aquino “Noynoy” Aquino III’s inability to attend President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s Third State of the Nation Address (SONA).

Inter-Parliamentary Relations and Special Affairs Bureau (IPRSAB) confirmed this and stated that,

“President Aquino already sent regrets”

This would be another case of an absent former President who’s been missing in all SONAs of President Duterte.


And instead of taking it to heart as a sign of disrespect, netizens all over Facebook found the silver lining and rejoiced.

Netizen Apollo Alvarez stated that by the 4th SONA, Noynoy’s absence would be legitimate,

“Next year, mas may valid reason na si Noynoy kung bakit hindi siya makakadalo sa SONA ni Digong kasi makukulong na siya dahil sa Dengvaxia deaths.”

Another netizen named Achilles Arevalo, on the other hand, didn’t see the importance of having Noynoy around.

“Kailangan ba? Eh Sino ba sya, di naman sya kawalan kung hindi sya umatend, mas maganda nga wag na lang sya pumunta doon. Dapt nga hindi n rin binabalita yan,” he stated.


Carine Fullon made a reference on the Pinoy meme “advance mag-isip.”

“Kc alam niang titirahin sia ni Duterte kaya advance na siang mag-isip,” she referenced.

John Zeon Yee Dionesio was definitely not impressed,

“Who cares, he’s not that important anyway, kung ako sa kanya focus nya nalang mga kaso nya. Ganun dun kay Trollanes wala kaming pake kahit di pa siya mag attend haggang 2022 sona.”

Eugine Villarin Amban Tuy tried concluding a reason on why Aquino loves being absent,

“Ayaw kasi marinig ng paninisi sa kanya gaya nong ginawa nyang mga SONA na puro paninisilang yung nagawa,baka maungkat pa yung pagpagasa nya sa train makahiyaan pa eh yun pa naman turo sa kanya ng tatay nya na gawin yung pinangako…” Tuy concurred.

In general, the attendance or absence of the former President is not much of a big issue. Some netizens even find it weird that GMA would report such a thing. Either way, we can say for sure that everything is just water under the bridge for the netizens.
