PNoy, Mar inaugurate Apo-Cemex Naga plant in 2015 — 2018 landslides kills 42

Thinking Pinoy made another interesting expose on social media as he revealed that during the inauguration of Apo-Cemex Naga City in 2015, then President Noynoy Aquino attended the inauguration of the plant but the sad thing about the story is the fact that a few days ago, the Apo-Cemex was blamed responsible for the Naga City landslides claiming the lives of 42 individuals and still counting.

Aside from Aquino, also present during the inauguration of the Apo-Cemex Naga City plant were then DILG Secretary Mar Roxas, then TESDA Chief-turned Senator Joel Villanueva and incumbent Governor Hilario Davide III.

The $67.3 Million Cement Mill at its Apo Cement Plant in Naga City Philippines is just a part of the Cemex Philippines comprehensive expansion plan in the country. The inauguration of the 3433m2 facility was held on May 1, 2015, coinciding with Philippine Labor Day celebration.

The mill increases the capacity of Cemex's Apo Plant by 1.5Mta, resulting in an additional 40 per cent of the company's capacity in the Philippines.

Cemex has been present in the Philippines since 1997 through its two cement plants. Apart from the Apo Cement Corporation in Naga City, Cebu, Cemex also operates the Solid Cement Corporation in Antipolo City, Rizal.

Netizens were suprised with the revelations of Thinking Pinoy as they lambasted the former President for their involvement in the said inauguration of the project that was blamed by the victims as the real culprit of the landslides in coordination with some corrupt government officials.

Here are some of the netizen's reactions:

Pedring Panilag: "TP, very good job. We use to plant crops and other agri products in the area on 70's. We owned around 2 hectares and the agri products were able to sent us to the schools and now we are all professionals - engrs, nurse, accountants. In 80's, CEMEX was already buying that mountains and late 90's the quarrying starts. On year 2000 cemex pressured us selling the 2 hectares but we were hesitant until they quarry our lot without our consent. Then we have no choice. Dapat e-highlight ang governor ng Cebu na si davide."

Shantel Marcos Recesio: "The President never wasted any of his time pointing out fingers to blame. Instead he took all the responsibility from burial and medical assistance. Shame on The Yellowtae."

Rhissa: "Told him to work para sa Bayan. May mga prayer prayer pa kaayo need niyo talaga 'yan dahil buhay pa kayo sunog na mga kaluluwa ninyo."

Yayi Dee: "Hindi yan alam ni Panot. 'Yan ang sasabihin niya, tirisin man natin ang bayag niya, di 'yan aamin na alam niya yan! Buset!"

Marlon Agoncillo: "The real God is good binigyan tayo ng isang maayos na presidente ngayon sa katauhan ni tatay digong..sana sa pag tapos ng termino nya.ang pumalit ay katulad nya rin na may malasakit sa tao."

Evelyn Pacillos: "Nasaan si fake lugaw busy pag-rally ang demonya dapat sila mga yellowdemons ang tinangay lahat?"
