‘Let the poor breathe’ - Pat Utomi knocks the Senate for "mocking the poor" amid economic hardship


Political economist and former presidential aspirant, Prof. Pat Utomi, has berated the Senate for allegedly mocking the poor amid economic hardship. Prof. Utomi stated this on Friday, July 28, 2023, a few days after the Senate President, Godswill Akpabio and other lawmakers cracked the “Let the poor breath joke” during a plenary session at the red chamber.
"I am traumatized by this mocking of the poor by our Senate. In a decent society, we should have had resignations by now. To mock the poor is to mock God. I know where Godswill Akpabio was before Obong Victor Attah gave a hand. Better an honest poor than a rich thief politician,” he tweeted.
"I wonder what it will take to make people realize that values shape human progress. Sustainable progress is impossible when culture collapses and institutions are dysfunctional. Sadly this seems to be an extant reality in Nigeria. Citizens need to be awakened to where we are,"
“To abuse public trust and mock the victims as is becoming a habit of the criminal network of our politicians is to forget how transient power is. All will do well to remember the Judgment of Conscience, the judgment of history, and God's Judgement. He reigns,”
