The National Food Administration is not transferring to the lot of the Negros Occidental provincial government in Brgy. Tabunan, Bago City, NFA Negros Occidental manager Procopio Trabajo said yesterday.
Negros Occidental Governor Alfredo Marañon has asked the NFA officials to relocate since the access road leading to the site of its warehouse along Gatuslao Street in Bacolod is included in the more than 3-hectare property the province is selling to a private developer.
Trabajo said they will remain in their present site as they have a deed of donation and the land title.

Pilot error blamed
for Seair mishap
Seaair officials yesterday were eyeing pilot error as the cause of the freak accident involving a Seair A320 plane heading from Kalibo to Singapore, and not Manila as earlier reported.
Capt. Bert Yap, vice president for operations of Tigerair which operates Seair, said the pilot and co-pilot of the plane are now grounded as a standard measure once an aircraft figures in an accident.
The pilot miscalulated his maneuver on the runway, Yap said.
He also said the runway was cleared of the aircraft at around 2 pm.
