With no negative vote, the Commission on Appointments (CA) swiftly confirmed former Sen. Gregorio Honasan II as secretary of the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT).
Honasan assured he will abide by the marching orders of President Rodrigo Duterte.
“I think I was not placed or appointed as secretary or as a digital lineman. The technical expertise is there, and my marching orders from the President is very clear which is connectivity. Connect the government to other governments, domestic and global. Connect govt to business and connect govt to the citizens and everybody to each other,” he said.
“Second, he said, ‘do this faster’… Do this cheaper, if not free, that’s why we have free WiFi and do this in a more secure manner.”
