CLAIM: Suspended lawyer Larry Gadon, a senatorial candidate, claimed that the Bangui Windmills in Ilocos Norte is a project of a former governor who is now running for president.
Gadon stated this during a senatorial debate organized by the Quiboloy-owned Sonshine Media Network International (SMNI) held last Wednesday, March 2.
The panelists asked the bets of their priority legislation if they are elected in the May 2022 national elections.
In his response, Gadon said that he planned to expand the wind mills in Ilocos Norte as the country’s source of energy.
While he did not specify which wind mill power plant, the senatorial bet claimed that the “wind mill” project in the province was initiated by Ferdinand Marcos Jr.
Marcos is a presidential aspirant that was endorsed Pastor Apollo Quiboloy, the head of the SMNI News Channel. Gadon is among the candidates in his senatorial slate.
“Alam niyo yung project na initiate ni Bongbong Marcos dun sa Ilocos Norte, yung windmill power source, yan ang pinakamalaking windmill energy producer in Southeast Asia. So dapat kopyahin natin yon. Ipalaganap natin yon,” he said.
RATING: The claim about the wind mills project is false.
No wind farm or power plant in Ilocos Norte is operated and run by Marcos and any of his family members.
This was according to the data of the Department of Energy’s 2020 list of power plants in Luzon.
