NFA appointment bared

A Malacañang official, who said he was not authorized to announce the appointment, disclosed to the Philippine Daily Inquirer that Orlan Agbin Calayag would soon be named the new administrator of the National Food Authority (NFA).

“His (appointment) papers are being readied now,” said the Palace official.

Calatag was the chief of staff of Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala when the latter was a congressman.

Earlier, a report began making the rounds that President Aquino had named Customs Deputy Commissioner for Intelligence and Investigation Danilo Lim as the new NFA chief in place of Lito Banayo who resigned late last year to prepare for his Congress bid in May.

But Malacañang appeared not to know anything about it.

When asked to confirm the report, Palace officials refused to comment on the matter.
