Cavite State University Students Required to Attend VP Binay “TSONA”

Students of Cavite State University (CSU) are required to attend VP Jejomar Binay “True” State of the Nation Address (TSONA) according to presidential spokesperson Edwin Lacierda on Tuesday.

In his Facebook account, Lacierda posted a photo showing CSU President Divina C. Chavez memo dated July 30 requiring 3rd and 4th years students to attend a “student assembly” at the university gymnasium.


Lacierda said that the student assembly turned out to be the vice-president’s TSONA. ”Pres. Divinia Chavez of Cavite State University should perhaps explain why students were required 2 attend VP’s TSONA,” Lacierda said on Twitter.

The alleged memo dated July 30 read:

“The Central Student Government (CSG) will be sponsoring a STUDENT ASSEMBLY on Aug. 3, 2015, 4:00 pm at the University Gymnasium. All 3rd and 4th year students are required to attend the said activity. Kindly excuse from their classes those who will participate in the said event. Attendance shall be checked by CSG officers. For compliance.”

Malacañang is leaving it up to the Commission on Higher Education to look into a school memo requiring students of CSU to attend VP Binay’s TSONA.
