PGMA swears in Icban as Press Secretary

Manila (2 February) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo inducted into office Secretary Crispulo Icban Jr. as the new Press Secretary on February 1, 2010. Sec. Icban took over the position left vacant by the late Press Secretary Cerge Remonde.

The induction, held at the Ceremonial Hall of Malacanang, was witnessed by Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita, Icban's wife, Zenaida, his children and grandchildren, close friends and officials of the Office of the Press Secretary. Manila Bulletin chairman Don Emilio Yap was also present.

The President thanked Icban for accepting the post. The new secretary, for his part, asked the President how she manages such a taxing schedule as hers.

"I told her that I truly admired her stamina and hard work and joked that septuagenarians like Secretary Ermita and myself could not keep pace with her," Icban said later in an interview.

Icban officially assumed office today. He attended a private lunch in his office, followed by a tour of each of the offices under OPS in the New Executive Building and the News and Information Bureau at Gate 7.

Seated behind the Press secretary's desk, Icban told the editors that he would take his cue from them because "you know better than I do what our work is all about around here." (PIA-MMIO) [top]
