Senator Ben Murray-Bruce is not done yet. He’s still on twitter fire! Following comments by Pres. Buhari that Nigerians find it hard to get assylum in Britain following their high rate of crime, Sen. Murray-Bruce blasted him on twitter saying his own minister spent N80m on a 1 day dinner. He was referring to Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi who reportedly spent N80m to host Prof. Wole Soyinka for a 1 night dinner.
Amaechi was not pleased though and he has fired back at him calling him a coward.
Your own minister spent ?80 million on a one day dinner, yet it is your citizens you accuse of being criminals #IAmANigerianNotACriminal

A coward who is not bold enough to name the minister that he alleged criminally spent N80M on dinner is unfit to sit in our senate chambers

I will not respond to innuendos. Be courageous, name the minister. We know you talk here & do 'siddon' look where you are elected to talk
