Former Department of Environment and Natural Resources Secretary Gina Lopez described Nueva Vizcaya as “paradise” after her visit to the province last November.
Lopez was visiting Tuguegarao City but had to travel by land back to Manila because of bad weather.
“It is like paradise! I wonder why many people do not know of the beauty of Nueva Vizcaya,” she said in a Facebook post.
Lopez said she called Nueva Vizcaya Governor Carlos Padilla after seeing the province’s natural beauty.
“I want to help you. I want to maximize the beauty of your place to benefit the lives of the people there. Let me know when you are ready to talk,” she said.#
