“Hindi na tayo natuto sa Northrail. Hindi ba pwedeng maawa tayo sa sarili natin?” Aquino in the sidelines of an Otso Diretso forum in Cebu City,Cebu.

The North rail project was a $400-million Chinese loan originally launched during Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s term as president, but was later cancelled when reports leaked out that her aides took kickbacks to get it started.

The primary purpose of the 80-kilometer (50-mile) North Rail project was supposedly to allow the country's main aviation gateway to be moved out of congested central Manila.

The statement of the former President came after Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonio Carpio also warned the Duterte administration publicly that China could seize oil and gas rich Philippine assets in the disputed South China Sea if the country defaults on payment for a new $62 million loan.
The loan agreement was signed by the government with China last April 10, 2018 but critics have warned of the allegedly onerous deal.

Out in the campaign trail

The opposition is in Cebu to campaign for its Otso Diretso senatorial slate.

He campaigns for the opposition slate, telling the electorate that the eight from the opposition is the ‘solution” to such controversial issues hounding the presidency of Rodrigo Roa Duterte.

The slate which are composed of the following, Romy Macalintal, Gary Alejano, Erin Tanada, Pilo Hilbay, Samira Gutoc, Mar Roxas, Bam Aquino, and Chel Diokno, are a better alternative, despite their dismal pre-election survey performance.

“Kung di ka na happy, magbibigay tayo ng solusyon. Sa akin, ang Otso Diretso, bahagi ng solusyon,” Aquino said. 
(If you are no longer happy, let's find solutions. For me, Otso Diretso offers just that.)
