MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Jover Laurio, a.k.a. Pinoy Ako Blog (PAB) has sent Usec Mocha Uson a formal request for accreditation with the Malacañang Press Corps.
Laurio, who was recently named “Filipino of the Year” by the Philippine Daily Inquirer, said that under the MPC and Malacañang guidelines, she is more than qualified to be accredited.
”Not only am I the ‘Filipino of the Year,’ but I also have more than 5,000 followers. Plus, I am attending law school,” she said. “If Rappler’s Pia Ranada can be accredited, why can’t I?”
Uson has recommended favorable action on Laurio’s request. The controversial blogger — known for her ‘resibo’ — will be assigned a seat between Uson and The Adobo Chronicles.
