No live bands, no outdoor clubbing trance music, no booze – This was Misamis Oriental Gov. Yevgeny “Bambi” Emano’s statement on plans of allowing displaced Night Café vendors at the capitol grounds.
Governor Emano cited the capitol’s proximity to three major hospitals – Northern Mindanao Medical Center (NMMC), Sabal Hospital and Cagayan de Oro Medical Center and allowing such will cause further inconvenience to the patients. The “Tiangge” is suggested to occupy the areas fronting the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) office and the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) and NOT AT THE PARK.
Clarifying further, he said the “Tiangge” would prioritize One-Town-One-Product (Otop) vendors from the 23 towns and two cities in the province. Once they are accommodated, only then can the displaced Night Café vendors apply.
Governor Emano said a lot of rules and policies will need to be studied first before allowing Night Café vendors at the capitol grounds. Capitol spokesperson Angelito Rulona said the Emano administration was looking at five to six months of preparation for the “Tiangge”.
