Boy Abunda just might become part of president-apparent Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III’s cabinet.

This Aquino divulged in an interview with reporters, as he noted of Abunda’s expertise in marketing and his ability to communicate well.

“He’s an icon and more so for his ability to understand the audience,” Aquino said when asked about reports Abunda is open to accepting a government post.

He however clarified he has not asked Abunda yet although he already sent feelers to the host.

Aquino did not specify the post he eyes for Abunda, a popular television host and the best friend of his sister Kris, but indicated that Abunda is best fit for a “marketing” job.

He also hinted Abunda could be part of the Department of Tourism.

“Boy would be a good communicator…puwede rin siya pagkatiwalaan,” added Aquino.

He however said Abunda might not even consider the position because a cabinet post means a meager salary.

“We have to look at the compensation aspect. Gasino lang naman suweldo,” he said.
