Former Senate President Aquilino “Nene” Pimentel, Jr. wants the Cagayan de Oro International Convention Center (CDOICC) located in Sitio Taguanao, Barangay Indahag, as “Pablo Magtajas Auditorium” in honor of the late former Mayor Pablo Magtajas.
Based on an article of Gold Star Daily, Pimentel said the facility was also built on a land previously owned by the late mayor.
City Mayor Moreno sees no problem with the proposal which needs a city ordinance to rename it. He also encouraged current Senate President Aquilino ‘Koko’ Pimentel III to finish the said project.
It can be recalled that the project was initiated by the former senator in June 30, 2001 but has become some sort of a white elephant for several years up to now and remained unfinished. View the latest aerial tour of the facility taken last January 2017 on the link below.
