It can be recalled that the statue of Ninoy was covered by a tent during the UniTeam rally in Tarlac, preventing the statue from being seen when one is standing onstage.
Here is the response of Tarlac Mayor Cristy Angeles, when asked about the incident.
Benigno Simeon "Ninoy" Aquino Jr., was a Filipino politician. He served as a senator of the Philippines, as well as a governor of Tarlac. His death in 1986 became a vital point of the EDSA Revolution.

Bituin Escalante took to Twitter and condemned the manner by which the monument of Ninoy Aquino was covered by the roof of the tent. The roof was placed so near the monument of Ninoy that one could not see what it looked like anymore. The tent was used by the BBM-Sara grand rally in Tarlac. "Ano na namang kahangalan ito?" asked the singer.
In an old report, the statue of the late Senator Ninoy Aquino has already been taken down from the corner of Quezon and Timog Ave. It could possibly be transferred to the Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife. The transfer of the statue already had the blessings of the Aquino family.
