Noynoy appoints new PAGCOR chairman

President Benigno Simeon Aquino III has appointed his old friend, Bong Naguiat, as the new chairman of the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. (PAGCOR).

Naguiat, a former classmate of Aquino at the Ateneo de Manila University, will replace Efraim Genuino who recently retired from the helms of the state-run gaming agency.

Naguiat, who previously served as director at Pagcor, is expected to take his oath before President Aquino on Friday afternoon in Malacañang.

Also scheduled to take their oaths are newly elected Secretary Teofisto Guingona III and Internal Revenue Commissioner Kim Henares at the Palace.

Henares, former BIR Deputy Commissioner, replaces Commissioner Joel Tan-Torres at the revenue generating agency.
