Senator Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino, after announcing in Manila last night that he is going on a spiritual retreat and discernment before deciding on his plans for the 2010 presidential race, flew to Davao City this morning.
He is on his way to the Carmelite Monastery in Zamboanga and decided to take the connecting flight in the city. He is now in a private meeting with a close friend of his mother, Jesus V. Ayala.
Local media are finding a way to interview him.
He will proceed to Zamboanga after lunch.
Meanwhile, the K NA! (Kabataang para kay Noynoy Aquino), a local youth group organized last week, are massed up at the city’s Centennial Park continuing to gather signatures to convince the young senator to run for president.
