Aquino moves to Palace study as Bonifacio Hall office undergoes repair
The online news portal of TV5

MANILA, Philippines - President Benigno Aquino III has been temporarily holding office at a study in Malacanang Palace after his office at the Bonifacio Hall was found to be structurally unsafe.

Aquino moved to the study, which has been used by past presidents, including the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos, on June 21.

"The building (Bonifacio Hall) underwent an earthquake survey but it was not attended (to) since the 1970s,” he said in his speech at the 113th anniversary of the Department of Foreign Affairs.

Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Office head Ramon Carandang said the office at the Bonifacio Hall, also known as the Premiere Guesthouse, is “being repaired and its structure is being examined.”

The two-story Bonifacio Hall, a glass-fronted building across from the Palace, was built in 1975.

It was used as the main office of Aquino's mother, the late President Corazon Aquino, during her term.

It became presidential office and residence under then President Joseph Estrada.

 At present, it also houses the office of Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa Jr.
