Kris Aquino has finally spoken to the social media about her thoughts on the issue that has been making rounds on the internet regarding the relocation of their father’s statue, the late senator Benigno Aquino Jr.

The Queen of all media seemed fed up on why the people are making a big fuzz about the opposing views of her and his brother, Noynoy Aquino over the relocation issue, but she insisted that it is not really a big issue in their family.

According to KAMI, we just learned that the prominent siblings have opposing ideas about the relocation site of the statue of the late father, Ninoy.

Their father’s statue was originally constructed at the corner of Timog and Quezon Avenues, but it was damaged because of the road-clearing operations of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).

Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte already presented to the Aquinos two possible options as to where the statue can be relocated and the former president chose the Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife.

However, Krissy explained that she wanted the statue to be relocated to the Manila Seedling Bank because it is near malls and busy foot traffic so that a lot of people especially the youth can easily see the figure.

She wanted the younger generation to see her father’s statue and trigger their curiosity about him and his contribution to the country’s democracy.

Because of the issue, the two siblings were not on the same note as to where the new site of the statue and Kris broke her silence and ignored the people who keep on making it a big deal.

She said that, in their family, they practice freedom of choice, and she also straightforwardly mentioned that she has high respect and love for his brother.

The Media Icon added that her relationship with her brother the former President Noynoy Aquino  still remains a “work in progress” since they are not really close to each other.

In her Instagram post, she said, “Hindi po issue na Noy chose DENR’s Parks & Wildlife and I wanted the mall development area... Obvious naman na magkaiba talaga kami, and clear din na we practice freedom of choice in our family…

“Hindi naman secret sa inyo, rebuilding our relationship as brother and sister remains a work in progress for us… So kung trip nyong gawing teleserye ang buhay pamilya namin, ma bo-bored lang kayo kasi walang matinding di pagkakaunawaan na nagaganap…

“Hindi ko rin kayo pa-plasticin at sasabihan na very close kami, we’re not - last time kaming nagkita was more than 4 months ago. But really? Location ng statue ng dad namin ang gustong gamitin na issue to widen our gap? Trust me we’ve had more disagreements of substance than that,” Kris posted.
