‘Where’s our sense of history?’: Bid to rename NAIA, wrong timing - VP Robredo



“Paliparang Pandaigdig ng Pilipinas” would have been the new name of the country’s international gateway if the filed House Bill No.  7031 will be signed into a new law.
But the Vice President slams the timing of the move, wherein the country is facing a public health crisis brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The move to rename the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) was filed by three solons, Presidential son and Hose Deputy Speaker Paolo Duterte, Marinduque representative Lord Allan Velasco, and ACT-CIS Partylist Rep. Eric Yap.

The three solons say, changing the name of the country’s biggest airport will make it “easily be identified as the international doorway of the country, in view of it being in Filipino language and branding it as the international airport of the Philippines.”


“Where is our sense of history?”

The Vice President in an exclusive interview with CNN Philippines’ “The Source” said that we all know the very reason why the country’s main gateway to the world was named after the late senator Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino, Jr. who was assassinated last August 21, 1983.

Where is our sense of history? asked the vice president.
“Ito, parang, nasa gitna tayo ng pandemya, ‘di ba? Nasa gitna tayo ng pandemya, ito pa talaga maiisip natin,” Robredo said

We’re in the middle of a pandemic, right? We’re in the middle of a pandemic and this is what we’re really paying attention to right now.)

“Number one, it’s ill-timed. Number two, alam naman natin why (we all know why) it was named Ninoy Aquino International Airport. So iyong tanong (So the question is), where is our sense of history?” she added.

“Ngayon pa talaga? (Should it really be renamed now?),” retorted Robredo upon learning of the bid to change the name of. The country biggest airport.

“Ngayon pa talaga na dapat all hands on deck tayo na nagtutulong-tulong para masugpo iyong pandemya. Ngayon pa iyon naiisipan,” VP Leni added.
