DISQUS SHORTNAME

Northern Antique ravaged by Yolanda, Governor vacationing in Europe amidst crisis



In the aftermath of Typhoon Yolanda, most areas in Antique remain to have no power, at least four (4) were confirmed dead, and the amount of damage to property - still undetermined. 

Amidst all this, Antique Governor Exequiel Javier is missing-in-action; reportedly on vacation in Europe with his family. Per local media, Javier sought travel clearance for October 29-November 9 but left the country on October 26th. He designated SP Member Victor Condez as OIC Governor but it was Vice Governor Rhodora Cadiao who took charge when the province was placed in a “state of imminent danger” due to threats brought by the super typhoon.



“Our governor should come home now. It’s best that he cuts short his vacation in Europe so that he can attend to the needs of the Antiqueños,” said Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) Board Member Arturo Pacificador. Javier and Pacificador are known political rivals. The latter was accused of masterminding the assassination of Javier's brother - Evilio, but was later found innocent by the court.


Apart from the current report of negligence, Javier also has a pending case with the COMELEC for suspending a Mayor illegally while the election ban was in effect. He has also been criticised for allegations of vote buying, nepotism and diverting of pork funds intended for Antique to his wife's home province.

Several Antiqueños have taken to Twitter to air their frustration; seek for information and help for the affected towns. To help out, you may contact the numbers listed above or connect via this Facebook Page.
