Mayor Onaga strongly emphasized, “The campaign pledge of Governor Hirokazu Nakaima was to replace the MCAS Futenma with a facility in some other prefecture four years ago. Okinawan citizens have not yet approved the landfill plan. People of Okinawa will judge this at the gubernatorial election. I will never allow to make the new base, and the Futenma base will never stay where it is. Okinawan citizens have said ‘No Henoko!’”
