‘Di kilala si Spongebob! Gov Alvarez: Nickelodeon resort is pure ‘imagination’

Jun 28, 2017 @ 13:22

Palawan Governor Jose Alvarez on June 23 dismissed the proposed Nickelodeon resort in Coron, saying there’s “no plan” and “no application” for the project.

The Palawan politiko said the provincial government has not received any proposal for the controversial project.

“Forget what Nickelodeon is saying, he is just teasing your imagination,” Alvarez said.

Coron locals and conservationists vehemently protested the proposed project after Nickelodeon’s parent company, Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN), said it is planning to construct an underwater resort in the tourist town.

Department of Tourism (DOT) Secretary Wanda Teo previously said the project will push through, but she later said it will still have to clear the Department of Environment Natural Resources (DENR).

“I don’t even know any personalities in Nickelodeon. When somebody asks me what is Spongebob, I say I don’t know,” Alvarez said.
