Aquino visits Cavite for second straight day

In a second straight day, President Benigno Aquino III visisted victims of calamities in Cavite and distributed relief goods in evacuation centers.

Curiously, Cavite Governor Jonvic Remilla was not present went Aquino visited the province and instead his ally and losing gubernatorial bet Ayong Malicsi accompanied the president.

For Remulla’s part, he said that no one informed him that Aquino will be visiting the province that it surprised him when he saw the convoy of the Presidential Security Group in Binakayan Elementary School in Kawit.

The governor said that there are no ill-feelings that he was not informed but he’ll continue to help his fellow Caviteños during times like these. (Malou R. Cabral)

 

Evacuees sneer at PNoy

All seems well for some evacuees when President Benigno Aquino III himself visited Tinabunan Elementary School in Cavite but not all Caviteños were pleased.

After hearing the news that the President will pay a visit and distribute relief goods, residents of neighboring barangays stormed the evacuation center hoping that they would return home with a smile on their faces and pack load of relief goods.

However, it appears that only 178 families in the said evacuation center are the only priority of the relief goods.

Once the relief goods were distributed by the president, Imus Mayor Manny Malicsi continued the honor of distributing the supplies to waiting residents.

But still, residents were elated for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the president face-to-face and receive relieve goods from the bachelor president himself. (Reggie Espiritu)
