The two time Senator also stated that God will not forgive him if he had pocketed the money meant for the empowerment of the people of his constituency

” And you know a senator that cares. All these things, if I have wanted to personalize them and put the money in my pocket, all these things you are seeing now you will not see them but God will not forgive me if I do it.
“So if I have made the sacrifice to you, please use it.
“Particularly our youths, empowerment is not the million I give to you. Even if I give you a generator and there is power failure and you take it to your house, you have empowered your family”, he said.
Senator Urhoghide said that he feels the pains of the unemployed and that the government cannot tackle the problem alone but the collective effort of everyone pointing that, that is the reason he has to press so hard that such materials are made available to the people of his senatorial district.
