For 3 days now, certain media guys have been relaying their request for my comment/reaction in the mess that Speaker Alvarez is now in.
I courteously decline. I don’t feel right rubbing it in even as I note that many people esp. netizens have been boisterously expressing their thoughts on this scandal. I also note there is righteous indignation.
I just have this message for the Speaker – Please stop judging me on my “true character”. You don’t know me. Just ask please people who do. So please desist from perpetuating the lies about my alleged drug links. The people who truly know me will tell you it’s an absolute nonsense.
I pray for the Speaker’s peace of mind.
