“I’m ready to leave. Kahit hindi ako tanggalin ni [House] Speaker, once I’m proven guilty, I will resign,” he said.

On Monday, Yap has been named by President Rodrigo Duterte as one of the legislators involved in alleged corruption according to the Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC).

Yap in particular was accused of corruption over infrastructure projects in Benguet but he denied taking part in the bidding for the infrastructure projects in the province, where he serves as legislative caretaker.

Aside from Yap, among those who were allegedly involved in corruption are the following; Occidental Mindoro Rep. Josephine Sato, former Ifugao Rep. Teodoro Baguilat, Quezon City Rep. Alfred Vargas, Misamis Occidental Rep. Henry Oaminal, Northern Samar Rep. Paul Daza, Quezon Rep. Angelina Helen Tan, ACT-CIS Rep. Eric Yap, Bataan Rep. Geraldine Roman and Isabela Rep. Alyssa Sheena Tan.

But before he read the names of the legislators allegedly involved in corruption, the President clarified that being on the list does not mean that there is solid evidence against them.
