Nigerians cannot feed, yet ₦40m is budgeted for feeding of wildlife in Aso Rock – Ben Bruce

The lawmaker representing Bayelsa East Senatorial District, Senator Ben Murray Bruce, has hinted that there’s a budget of ₦40m to feed wildlife in the Presidential Villa.

He bemoaned why that should be when Nigerians can barely feed.

On his Twitter handle ‏@benmurraybruce, Murray-Bruce tweeted: “It breaks my heart that at a time when many Nigerians can’t eat, we are budgeting ₦40 million to feed wildlife in Aso Rock Presidential Villa!

“At ₦510 to a dollar, #BuyNaijaToGrow TheNaira is no luxury, it is not even a necessity. Nigeria has reached the stage where it’s a necessity!

“I celebrate the ICPC for buying made in Aba bags and call on other MDAs of the government to join the #BuyNaijaToGrowTheNaira movement!

“As someone who has over the years advocated for the FG to legalize illegal refineries, I commend the VP and urge him to put action to words,” he added.
