Ako Bicol Rep. Garbin to Velasco: ‘It is humility that makes you real’


Ako Bicol partylist Rep. Alfredo Garbin said it is the “humility” of House Speaker Lord Allan Velasco that makes him a “real” person.

Garbin also recalled that both of them started their career as lawmaker in 15th Congress in 2010.

“Congratulations Speaker LAV. I knew it’s just a matter of time. With lots of prayers and holding on to the promise that God will never forsake you but to prosper you and give you a brighter future,” said Garbin.

The partylist solon also hopes that the newly installed speaker won’t as he leads the lower chamber.

“Magkasama tayo since 15th congress and blessing in disguise din yong hindi tayo naiupo sa 16th congress. I’ve known you to be a humble person and it is Humility that makes you real. As you lead the 18th congress sana hindi ka magbago,” said Garbin.

Velasco formally took over the House leadership yesterday after his election was ratified by the majority members of the chamber, which effectively ousted erstwhile Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano.
