Why I Said ‘Let The Poor Breathe In Senate’ – Akpabio

Senate President, Senator Godswill Akpabio, addressed criticisms received in response to a sarcastic comment made during a recent plenary session.

The comment, “Let the poor breathe,” was made in reference to stopping tariff hikes by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) and distribution companies (DisCos).

During a motion presented by Senator Akintunde Abiodun of Oyo State, Akpabio employed the phrase, leading to public scrutiny and criticism.

In a statement released on July 27, Akpabio clarified that his comment was not intended as an insult to citizens. He acknowledged the current hardships experienced due to the high cost of living in the country.

His statement explained the intention behind the joke, “was to firmly reject any plan of increasing electricity tariffs for Nigerians, considering the ongoing economic challenges that Nigerians are faced with.”

The Senate President emphasized his commitment to combating rising electricity costs for the benefit of Nigerian citizens.
