Renaming of Pangasinan's Agbayani Park hit

-

LINGAYEN, Pangasinan, Philippines – Second district Rep. Victor Agbayani has raised a howl over the provincial board’s ordinance renaming the Governor Aguedo F. Agbayani Park here to Governors’ Park, saying its authors show their ignorance of the law.

In a press statement yesterday, Agbayani, who also served as governor for three terms, said his father, Aguedo, was the longest serving governor of Pangasinan – for a total of 17 years. 

He said the park was named after his father through an ordinance in 2005 for “historical, not political” reasons.

He said the proposed resolution approved on first reading last Monday shows its authors’ alleged ignorance of the law as Section 13(d) of the Local Government Code “prohibits the changing of the name of public places within a 10-year period. – Eva Visperas
