Assures Nigerians of Commitment to Alleviate Economic Hardships

In response to recent concerns regarding a statement made by the President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio, through his media unit the Nigerian Senate has issued a clarification to assure the public that the remark was not meant to downplay the difficulties faced by ordinary Nigerians in the current economic climate.

The statement in question, "Let The People Breathe," was actually made by Senator Akintunde Abiodun during a plenary session on July 26th, 2023. Senator Abiodun used these words while speaking about the motion to halt the planned increase in electricity tariffs.

It is essential to emphasize that all matters discussed during Senate sessions are treated with the utmost importance and seriousness by the President of the Senate and his esteemed colleagues. The intention behind the motion and the subsequent comments was never to dismiss the hardships, sufferings, and economic challenges experienced by Nigerians during this critical period.

The proposal was put forward to firmly reject any plans to raise electricity tariffs, taking into account the ongoing economic challenges faced by Nigerians. The current National Assembly, under the leadership of Senator Akpabio, focuses primarily on implementing effective and well-structured policies that genuinely benefit the people. Senator Akpabio has consistently reassured Nigerians that the current Senate is committed to working for the betterment of all citizens.

The President of the Senate deeply empathizes with Nigerians and does not take the current economic crisis lightly. His unwavering dedication lies in serving the best interests of the Nigerian people. With the recent release of the ministerial list and the subsequent screening and swearing-in of the ministers, there is renewed hope that the newly appointed officials will promptly address the challenges at hand and bring much-needed relief to all citizens. The Senate aims to ease the current hardships and pains experienced by Nigerians.
