I ‘ve eyes only for my wife, says  lawmaker accused of sexual misconduct

One of the three House of Representatives members accused of sexual misconduct while attending a leadership programme in United States, Hon. Mark Terseer Gbillah, has said that he never cheated on his wife.

Hon. Gbillah, who alongside two of his colleagues, Hon. Samuel Ikon and Hon. Mohammed Garba Gololo, have come under attack over alleged attempted rape, sexual harassment and soliciting for prostitutes in the hotel they lodged, stated this on the floor of the House on Tuesday while denying the allegations.

He said, “For my colleagues who don’t know me and Nigerians out there, I want to categorically state here, for any avoidance of doubt, that no such incident occurred. “I want my colleagues and the nation to understand that though we are in the eye of the storm, we will bear this cross and courageously too.

“I want to say that this is calculated to tarnish the image of the three members and this very hallowed institution. And I caution Nigerians who are quick to conclusion, I want to state categorically for all Nigerians to know again, that I love my wife without reservation.
