Senator Ben Bruce further told the Nigerian President to stop blaming his predecessors who have tangible outcome of leadership, and allow Nigerians see the result of his presidency. His tweet reads;
‘President Buhari, please leave your predecessors alone. Stop blaming them. Instead, let Nigerians see the outcome of your leadership. Those you constantly blame, have tangible outcomes of their leadership. Yet, you who blames them, has no tangible outcome of your leadership’.
The Nigerian Senator from Bayelsa State, had also before now slammed President Muhammadu Buhari over his comments that Nigerians are lazy.
Ben Bruce, the Senator representing Bayelsa East constituency has slammed President Muhammadu Buhari over his comments that Nigerians are lazy.
He was quoted as saying, “More than 60 percent of the population is below 30, a lot of them haven’t been to school and they are claiming that Nigeria is an oil producing country, therefore, they should sit and do nothing, and get housing, healthcare, education for free.”
This stirred reactions and backlash from all corners. One of such was a statement from the former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar stating that Nigerian youths are the greatest assets and not lazy.
However, Ben-Bruce in reaction said the reflection of president Buhari in a mirror is the real definition of laziness.
He wrote, “Whoever says Nigerian youths are lazy should just buy a mirror and he or she will see the real definition of laziness!
“I have over 1000 Nigerian youths in my employ and not one of them is lazy”
