“The Speaker is safe, sound and committed to discharging his duties for the good of Imolites and the state.

“It is merely a rumor and nothing more. It is also important to state that the Speaker is nowhere near any attack. So the said attack only existed in the imagination of those behind it. I will also say that the Speaker is appreciative to all who have reached out to him mainly through calls and SMS over the rumor.”

“I guess, the intention of those behind the rumor was to distract him but he won’t because he is deeply committed to delivering effective representation and leadership to the good people of the state as his office demands,” Speaker said.
