To the Rescue!: “Leave NAIA alone" - Drilon


Retirement will not stop former Senator Franklin Drilon slamming the idea of changing the name of the country’s gateway to the world.


A proposed bill was filed renaming Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), after the father of newly sworn-in President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.


The former senator believes renaming the airport does not align with Marcos's admin's call for unity. He added the proposed bill was "divisive, reeks of politics, and ill-timed."


"I would like to believe that the incoming 19th Congress has more urgent things to do than to rename an airport, such as how to arrest inflation and address the surging oil prices," Drilon said in a statement on Wednesday.
"There is no compelling reason to change the name of NAIA. Any proposal to rename NAIA will always be seen as political and divisive," Drilon added.
"This obvious attempt for ingratiation is actually a disfavor to President Marcos Jr. It will not augur well with the call for unity of the Marcos administration," he said.
“Leave NAIA alone,” Drilon stressed.



Negros Oriental Rep. Arnolfo Teves filed House Bill 610 renaming the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) to Ferdinand E. Marcos International Airport.
