President Noynoy Aquino or PNoy left his phone in Manila; this was revealed today by Presidential Communications Secretary Ricky Carandang, as reported in top local news sites.

Carandang disclosed this during the budget hearing of the Office of the President before the House of Representatives appropriations committee, a few hours ago.

When Carandang was asked by House Minority Leader Edcel Lagman if President Aquino has replied to his text messages, he said, “I was informed that he (President) left his phone in Manila.”

Communications Operations Office Secretary Herminio Coloma, presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda, and Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa, along with Carandang were at the House of Representatives for the presentation of the P4.075-billion proposed 2011 budget of the Office of the President
Lagman was embarrassed a bit and suddenly stopped questioning Carandang while laughter was brought inside the hall.

Lacierda, in an interview after the hearing, said they have other means of reaching the President.

“We have other means of communicating with the President, like coursing the message through his aides. We are sending text messages to two people in the delegation.” The spokesperson of PNoy said.

President Aquino has been properly informed about all the issues here while he’s gone. We also use email.” He said.

Lacierda however said that he doesn’t know if President Aquino left his phone by accident.

As of this moment, President Aquino is still in the US for a seven-day working visit, attending the UN General Assembly in New York.

PNoy left Manila on Monday night, his first international visit as a president.
