The federal government today ordered the destruction of 15 containers of ‘spoilt’ frozen fish allegedly belonging to a company, Food Solution Nigeria Limited. This however, did not go down well with the senator representing Bayelsa West, Senator Ben Bruce as he is of the opinion that the food could have been given to the IDPs.
Nigerians had a thing or 2 to say.
But why destroy food in a nation with 2 million starving IDPs. Where is the sense in that? pic.twitter.com/cEVhLOQUlC

@benmurraybruce does their current status make them less human than your loved ones or they are another tool to score cheap political point.

@benmurraybruce Sir, did you read the news or you’re intentionally mischievous. The news was about expired and bad fish though.

@benmurraybruce do we feed people with spoilt fish because of starving? can we manage the cases of food poisoning that will arise from such

@benmurraybruce surely you’re not advocating we should feed IDP’S with condemned food?
