“It is painful for us that the turnover [ceremony] was canceled just because one person, the President, is not here,” said Lelina Lucena, a survivor.
Lucena and dozens of”other beneficiaries had to wait for hours for Mr. Aquino’s arrival, only to be told he was not coming. They would also not be moving into the new houses.
Gov. Corazon Malanyaon confirmed the turnover of the brightly colored houses built under the rehabilitation program for Pablo survivors was postponed because Mr. Aquino did not make it to this town.
