Senator Kiko Pangilinan Says Changing NAIA’s Name Should be the Least Priority

Senator Kiko Pangilinan Reacts to Proposed Changing of NAIA’s Name

Senator Kiko Pangilinan believes that changing NAIA’s name should be the least priority of the government amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Previously, Presidential son Paolo Duterte, Marinduque Rep. Lord Allan Jay Velasco, and ACT-CIS Representative Eric Go Yap filed the House Bill No. 7031 with the aim to change the name of NAIA.

The younger Duterte and the two lawmakers want to change the name of Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) to “Paliparang Pandaigdig ng Pilipinas,” which bears no political agenda.

The Presidential son explained that changing the airport’s name in Filipino language signifies that it belongs to the Philippines.

Recently, Senator Kiko Pangilinan said that renaming the airport’s name should not be a priority amid the health crisis in the country. He also cited that millions of Filipino people lost their jobs and experiencing hunger.
