Bayelsa State Senator, Ben Murray-Bruce has come
under severe criticism from Nigerians due to his silence
on the N8.64bn wardrobe allowance which he and other
legislators are set to receive.
Bruce has, in recent times, been vocal about the need
for public servants in Nigeria to reduce their expenses
and adjust their standard of living to reflect the
situation in the country.
The Senator, who is also the Chairman of the Silverbird
Group, said during the company’s “Man of the Year
ceremony” that politicians were putting themselves at
risk of death by continuing to rob poor citizens of
much needed funds and development.

Ben Bruce made himself an easy target when he
came on twitter and started feeling like Lee Kuan
Yew. APC senators should reject theirs first
