Senator Christopher 'Bong' Go has expressed his concern over the pest infestation at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), saying this is embarrassing to visitors entering the country.

The senator urges authorities to take immediate and decisive action considering that the airport is the country's main gateway.

"Unang-una, ang airport po natin ang sumasalubong sa ating mga tourist, foreign guests, and mismong local travelers. Ako mismo, sumasakay po ako diyan sa NAIA. Napakapangit naman na may problema sa peste diyan," Go said in an ambush interview on Tuesday, March 5.

"Sana po ay maayos ito ng soonest possible time at walang surot, walang daga. Nakakahiya naman. Sobrang nakakahiya naman po sa mga bisita natin dito na may makikitang surot at daga diyan sa NAIA," he added.


The senator made the statement following consecutive complaints about the infestation of bugs and rats at NAIA Terminals 1, 2, and 3.

Go stressed that authorities should be accountable and properly utilize resources to address the issue promptly.

"May pondo naman po ang gobyerno. Nakikiusap po ako sa authorities, nakikiusap po ako sa Department of Transportation... sa DOTr [Department of Transportation], sa ating NAIA management, may pondo naman kayo. Nagbabayad naman po ng buwis ang Pilipino, gamitin n’yo lang po sa tama," he noted.

In an exclusive interview on Monday, March 4, Manila International Airport Authority General Manager Eric Ines apologized for the inconvenience caused.


He noted that the management will work on a unified pest control policy at all NAIA terminals.
