MANILA - Senator Panfilo Lacson took to social media to congratulate his fried and colleague Gregorio "Gringo" Honasan on his new role as secretary of the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT).
Lacson posted a photo of him and Honasan during their days at the Philippine Military Academy (PMA).
"My heartfelt congratulations to my classmate, colleague and friend, DICT Secretary Gregorio “Gringo” Honasan," he said in the caption.
Lacson also posted a similar greeting on his Twitter account.
Both Lacson and Honasan are part of PMA Class '71.
Honasan took his oath as new DICT secretary on Monday at the Malacañang Palace.
President Rodrigo Duterte appointed Honasan as DICT secretary last November.
He replaced DICT officer-in-charge Eliseo Rio, who served as head of the National Telecommunications Commission during the time of former President and now House Speaker Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.
