The new governor of Cagayan Province ordered the destruction of the monument of former senator Juan Ponce Enrile in front of the provincial capitol.
Gov. Manuel Mamba, said the statue has no historical value so there is no reason for it to exist in front of the capitol.
Aside from this, the official expressed that Enrile is still alive and no reason to award a monument.
Mamba is known as the long time enemy of Enrile in politics.
