Ben Bruce Opens Up On When Buhari Will Return, As Senators Are Set To Meet The President

The outspoken Senator representing Bayelsa
East, Ben Murray-Bruce has hinted that
there will be a high-powered meeting
between the Senate and the President
when he returns

While speaking in an exclusive interview
with Vanguard on Friday on the State of
the Nation, the Senator representing
Bayelsa East in the Nigerian Senate, Ben
Murray-Bruce, gave hints of a possible high
powered meeting between the Senate and
President Mohammadu Buhari anytime
next week upon his return to Nigeria.

The Silverbird group CEO, who fumed at
the incremental hardship agreed to the
feelings that Nigeria has seriously lagged
behind in its developmental strides in the
last two years, said that the country was
momentarily in a big trouble.

According him, a lot of public policies have
become antiquated and could not drive
Nigeria’s economy in a 21 century world.

He said: “Nigeria has not really made any
progress in the last 2 years. I think we are in
big trouble right now. When the President
gets back, we would need to sit down with
him and have a conversation. There is no
point having a conversation with anybody
who is not a president.

“I am thinking the Senate. We will have a
conversation. A bipartisan team will go and
meet with Mr. President and have a
conversation with him. Not APC senators
meeting the president but the Senate meeting
him and have a conversation on the future
of Nigeria. That’s what I am gonna propose.
That we sit down with him and discuss the

“He’s the president and you can’t change
that and I respect constitutional authority.

He is the President of Nigeria and we will sit
down with him and discuss the problems
facing the country. In 2019 when there is
another president, that will no another issue.

But right now, he is the president and we
need to sit down with him and discuss the
issues. I understand he will be here next
week. Let’s talk to the President directly. I
think it is important to speak with the
President Buhari.”

On the issues to confront the President
with, Senator Bruce said it was all

“All the issues affecting the country. This is
my proposal. I am going to sit down with the
Senate President and say, look, let’s sit down
with the President. He’s not an APC
President. He’s president of Nigeria. So, I
don’t want say APC governors, senators
seeing him. He should see Nigeria not APC.
This is what I am gonna request, hopefully it
will be granted and we are gonna have a

“Everything agitates my mind. The economy
is in trouble, there is inflation,
unemployment, schools, every year, a million
kids cannot go to school. Automobile policy
of Nigeria is 1922 policy. Mass transit policy

is 1825. Our educational policy is 1942
policy. Are you kidding? We are in the stone
age. These are not caused by him. I don’t
want to accuse anybody but previous
government did a lousy job.

“You have a educational policy set up by the
colonial masters, have you changed that? Do
you have a policy on Power, Health? Name
one rich man who does not send his child, or
himself to be treated abroad. You spend
millions of Naira in Ghana every year on

education. You have the health stories in
India. So, what is going right? That has to be
dealt with. We need to discuss it. I am not a
critic, not here to run down anybody but I
have a solution to our problem” , he said.
