Malacañang Palace has assured the public that President Benigno Aquino III is closely monitoring the situation in the country’s transportation hubs ahead of the commemoration of Undas or All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day.

“Patuloy na tinututukan ng Pangulo ang kondisyon sa ating mga paliparan at pantalan upang tiyakin na ang ating mga mamamayan at lahat ng mga maglalakbay para sa Undas ay magkaroon ng ligtas at kombinyenteng paglalakbay,” Communications Secretary Herminio Coloma told reporters in a press briefing on Thursday.

Coloma said the President had already ordered and tapped concerned government officials and agencies to ensure peace and order in convergence areas.

“Pinag-utusan na lahat ng mga kinauukulang ahensya at opisyal na gawin ang lahat ng nararapat para matamo ang layunin ng isang safe at hassle-free commemoration ng Undas,” he said.

Asked if Aquino would personally inspect bus terminals, ports and airports, Coloma said he had no knowledge yet of the President’s schedule.
