No truth to Labella’s resignation: Casas
Mayor Edgardo Labella has not resigned from office, Cebu City Administrator Floro Casas, Jr. clarified.
Casa belied reports that Labella stepped down from his post because of his alleged deteriorating health condition.
“That’s not true. Mayor is on medical leave and is steadily recovering,” he told The FREEMAN. (https://bit.ly/3EWNOc3)
The official issued the statement after a Facebook post made rounds Sunday that read, “Mayor-elect Edgardo Labella officially tenders his resignation as the Mayor of Cebu City due to his deteriorating health condition. City Administrator Floro Casas Jr. confirmed this in a viber message.”
Casas also urged the public to pray for Labella’s recovery instead of spreading false information.
