Maaga pa: Mike Rama denies 2022 plans vs Labella
It’s just absurd to hear accusations that he is plotting against his running mate for the 2022 elections, Vice Mayor Mike Rama said.
The Cebu City politiko was quick to dispel rumors of a Rama-Ong tandem, which was apparently swirling for 2022. Rama said he had to speak up, as these rumors assume his betrayal of 2019 running mate Mayor Edgar Labella.
“I normally do not engage in idle speculation but for this, I will take an exception. There is absolutely NO TRUTH to the rumors of a Rama – Ong Tandem for 2022. Neither is it true that former Mayor Osmeña and I are somehow plotting or coordinating against the current administration,” Rama said.
“I am a member of the current administration. My focus is to serve the people as vice mayor. Furthermore, I am not one to betray my partymates, who have stuck with me through the years. I hope our news outlets and media men would be more responsible when they deliver their commentaries.”
