Leni: We Should Have Preserved The Marcos Bust

E30830B2-0626-4740-A555-BD867D4BD6AEBAGUIO CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Baguio Bureau) – Social media exploded with angry criticism of Vice President Leni Robredo when she said that the ruins of Marawi City should be preserved to remind the Filipino people of the heroism of the soldiers and the devastation brought about to the residents by the terrorist siege.

In an exlusive interview with The Adobo Chronicles in Baguio City, Robredo seemed to be coherent and consistent with her ideas and comments.

”And yes, we should have preserved the Marcos bust in Pugo, La Union, to remind the Filipinos and tourists about the late president’s Martial Law. A mere book by Raissa Robles does not do justice to this significant era in our history,” the VP said.

The monument was a 30 m (98 ft) concrete bust of the late president erected along Marcos highway leading up to Baguio City. It was blown up in 2002 under suspicious circumstances.
