Obasanjo Versus NASS: A Nigerian Senator Duped Me Says Pat Utomi

May 27, 2012
Professor Pat Utomi, a known antagonist of former president Olusegun Obasanjo has found cause to agree with the former president when he sensationally revealed that he had been duped by a man who is now a senator.
Utomi’s comments which are reminiscent of the comments by controversial former minister of the FCT, Malam Nasir Elrufai, came as a shock to his audience of Christian youths in Lagos.
Utomi had said as follows “A man who had 419’ed [duped] me in the past is now in the Senate. And I called the attention of a senior senator who is from the same state with the dupe, and who also knew about my dupe story with the man before, that this man is a thief and he was aware. The senior senator wanted me to keep quiet, and he said that is the problem with me, and that after all, seventy percent of government people are 419’s.”
It would be recalled that the senate had asked the former president, who had said last week that armed robbers were in the National and State Assemblies, to help them by identifying who were the armed robbers.
Now that Pat Utomi, a man noted for his high moral integrity who at 27 was already a Special Adviser on Economic Matters to former President Shehu Shagari, has spoken, the onus is now on the National Assembly to cleanse themselves.
He was speaking at an event tagged The Building Blocks of Effective Leadership,”  and he spoke on the theme, “Towards Creating a Network of Corruption-Intolerant Youth Leaders,”. He also embarrassed some of Nigeria’s big men when he revealed that the previous day he had accused some government officials to their faces at a town hall meeting in Lagos. Said Utomi “I told Barth Nnaji and a host of governors, in a recent Town Hall meeting, that the problem they have currently is that Nigerians do not trust them,” said Mr. Utomi. He added, “I said, you, Yuguda, I have told journalists to publish your boutique, in terms of how many women are dying in child delivery because you spend that kind of money on your boutique rather than spend it to work for the people”
