(Updated 8:19 a.m.) President Benigno Aquino III arrived at the Ciudad de Victoria of the Iglesia ni Cristo in Bulacan past 8 a.m. Monday, for the inauguration of the Philippine Arena, said to be the world's largest indoor arena.
 
Aquino arrived in Bocaue in Bulacan at about 8:06 a.m. for the inauguration of the Ciudad de Victoria, radio dzBB's Benjie Liwanag Jr. reported.

One of his first actions was to unveil the marker of the Ciudad de Victoria, as shown by a photo posted on the Twitter account of Radio Television Malacañang.

 
Several ranking officials led by Vice President Jejomar Binay were also present at the area for the inauguration.
 
Earlier Monday, traffic was tight at parts of the North Luzon Expressway early Monday as members of the INC flocked to Bulacan for the inauguration of the arena.
 
As of 5 a.m., dzBB's Liwanag reported traffic was tight at two of four lanes at the NLEX leading to Bocaue, Bulacan due to the large number of buses.
 
The NLEX said traffic built up going to the Iglesia ni Cristo's Ciudad de Victoria area due to the inspection at the gate. It advised motorists to keep to the leftmost lanes.
 
The Philippine Arena has a capacity of at least 50,000.

 
The Presidential Communications Operations Office said the arena is at the Ciudad de Victoria (City of Victory), a 50-hectare tourism enterprise zone in Bocaue. Joel Locsin/KG, GMA News
