Vocal politician, Ben Murray-Bruce may just be the perfect example of popular saying ‘practice what you preach.’

Yesterday, Nigerians proved they were watching the politician closely when someone went on Twitter to ‘expose’ the Silverbird CEO for doing the exact opposite of what he has been advocating for weeks now: #BuyNaijatoGrowTheNaira.

At his 60th birthday party,which took place a few days ago in Abuja, Mr. Bruce launched his A CommonSense Revolution book and shared free copies to guests in attendance. One would naturally think the ‘common sense’ speaker would have published his book in Nigeria but it appears the Senator has more faith in the American printing press.

The observant Nigerians shared book on Twitter saying : So, #BuyNaijaToGrowTheNaira advocate made his book in the USA. Haba! Immediately Nigerians reacted and they took heavy shots at Mr.bruce calling him a ‘hypocrite’ and a ‘noise maker’. One person even went as far as calling him a ‘first class fool.’

See their reactions above:

LOL.

hypocrisy can not be hidden for too long.

What happened to Brilla Press grin grin grin
Naija ?

That Ben is just beefing up his credentials. His destination is Bayelsa Govt house / PDP Vice Presidential Candidate.

It will all be achieved with the common sense revolution. Thanks to the gullible masses who believed KIA Seoul was made in Nigeria.

"My Name is Ben Bruce, I just want to make ConMan's sense to the gullible."

After all,he is a social media senator.




bottom line-

If you know anything about publishing, you will know that our publishing houses here are not up to standard. He wants the best for his book. Get over it. Maybe when he needs quality medical attention he should also go to Nigerian hospitals and die abi?

EDITED: I agree to making an inferior case above, but I won't cower and delete it. And please stop quoting to insult me. It is my opinion, though faulty.

If Ben Bruce feels Nigerian publishing houses are not up to standard, then he has no business promoting "made in Nigeria". Aba made shoes cannot compare with the standard of Italian made shoes. Even innoson cars cannot measure up to the standard European, US or Japanese cars, so why should anybody buy made in Nigeria.

Only wailers and gullible IPOB Youths take this attention seeker for his words.

I see him as another typical Nigerian politician who works on the emotions of the masses and throws us away when they get to where they're going.

You're talking absolute rubbish. There are more than enough quality publishing houses in this country to meet Bruce's requirements.


Oh.. and millions of Nigerians are treated in our hospitals annually without 'dying', olodo.

I havent read the book, so I do not know the context of the material and its targeted audience. If the principles within the bookl is meant for a macrocosmic audience, then the book needs a worldwide audience, so printing and especially distributorship by a Nigerian company will not capture that audience. You might want to argue that the context is Nigerian, but there are several millions of Nigerians in Diaspora.

Ben Bruce has been the ONLY voice of hope in this heat-permeating, electrically-inefficient, politically-myopic, economically-recessing contraption.

which Nigerian company have you given that opportunity ? This is the same story about everything in Nigeria "low Standard, Poor quality " how do you expect Nigeria to grow when you keep taking jobs and opportunities outside the country undecided Both Financial n Professional Growth will not happen! And we will all just keep complaining
