Senator Ben Bruce, at his 60th birthday party,which was held a few days ago in Abuja, launched a book titled, ‘CommonSense Revolution’ and shared free copies to guests in attendance.
An imprint in the publication suggests that the book was not printed in Nigeria but in the United States.
In a series of tweets, Nigerians have come against the Bayelsa State Senator and the Silverbird CEO, who for many weeks was an advocate of ‘buy in Nigeria goods’ for doing the exact opposite, saying he is a hypocrite.
Abubakar Sidiq Usman, in his twitter handle by the name, @MrAbuSidiq, said Ben Murray Bruce has no moral justification for advocating#BuyNaijaToGrowTheNaira since he printed his book in the US.
Lauretta Onochie (@Laurestar) also agrees with Usman that an advocate of #BuyNaijaToGrowTheNairashouldn’t have printed his book outside the country if he had wanted the naira to grow.
Imagine, so Ben Bruce did not even print his book, ‘A Commonsense Revolution’ here in Nigeria?#BuyNaija, Noise – making venture!
