FG Must Ask Tinubu And Fashola To Mentor States On How To Increase IGR – Ben Murray-Bruce


Chairman of the Silverbird Group and Senator-elect, Ben Murray-Bruce has continued his call for change on twitter, calling on the incoming government to partner with Lagos on how to help other Nigerian States to increase their internally generated revenue and reduce dependence on the federal government.

“For our economic survival, FG must partner with Lagos and ask both Tinubu and Fashola to mentor all other states on how to increase IGR,” he wrote on microblogging site Twitter.

He also took time out to reply those who have been criticizing his tweets, saying he might not have given free meals or handouts, he has provided jobs for 1,000 Nigerians.

Murray-Bruce continued his charge against bloated allowances for legislators and also hit out at governors.

The Silverbird boss also wondered why legislators and even the Chief Justice of Nigeria cannot live in their own houses.

Murray-Bruce who will from May 29 become a member of the 8th Assembly representing Bayelsa East Senatorial district, advised Nigerians to be wary of people who cannot successfully run their own business. “In future elections, Nigerians must note that those that cant make a success of their business will make politics their successful business.”
