PRESIDENT Benigno Aquino III  started his  last state of the nation address (Sona) on Monday with an apology for skipping the traditional processional walk  as he was not  feeling  well.

“Bago po ako magsimula, hihingi ako ng paumanhin dahil  hindi natin nagawa ang traditional na processional walk. Hindi  na rin po natin nakamayan ang lahat na nag-aabang, medyo masama po kasi ang aking  pakiramdam sa kasakuluyan,” Aquino  said.


Despite this,  the President  went  on and recognized  the presence  of Vice President  Jejomar Binay, former Presidents Fidel Ramos  and Joseph Estrada, now Manila  Mayor,  Senate President  Franklin Drilon,  Speaker  Sonny Belmonte, Chief Justice   Ma. Lourdes Sereno and other guests at the  gallery of the House  of Representatives.

This Monday’s Sona is  the President’s last before  he steps down in office in  2016.
