Aquino may attend Sinulog grand parade

CEBU CITY — Sinulog organizers and traffic managers are prepared to strengthen the security plan for this Sunday’s grand parade, with the prospect of President Aquino attending it.

Ricky Ballesteros, executive director of the Sinulog Foundation Inc. (SFI), said officials from the Presidential Management Staff (PMS) and the Presidential Security Group (PSG) called him on Thursday to ask for the time and details of the parade and the flow of the program at the Cebu City Sports Center.

“There is no confirmation yet on his arrival on Sunday. If he decides to attend, we are prepared with a security plan,” he told Sun.Star Cebu.

Ballesteros said he gave PMS and PSG options for the President’s entry to and exit from the sports center, as well as the route that he can take from the airport to the venue.

He said a route that will cause the least disruption to the parade and will allow maximum security for the president has been prepared.

“For any organizer, having the president attend the Sinulog is a security nightmare but we are prepared to strengthen our security plan. Security in the sports center and in the parade route will be extra tight, security will be our top priority,” said Ballesteros. (more)
