Senator Ben Bruce of the Peoples Democratic Party, took to his twitter handle to endorse the president Muhammadu Buhari’s fight against corruption. Many of his followers could not hide their displeasure as they came at him almost immediately saying his debt issues with AMCON has made him change his position on being on the side of the masses.
He had written that the fight against corruption is not a witch-hunt but everyone who has been named should go and prove their innocence.
The admin’s anticorruption war isn’t a witch hunt. In my opinion, we need it. If you’re innocent, prove your innocence. Dont say witch hunt!

And his followers seemingly displeased by the tweet didn’t waste any time in letting him know it

But he did win some over, as they praised him for his very first commonsense tweet

@benmurraybruce this by my judgment, is indeed the first time you will talk commonsense. All along, you were on a popularity seeking spree
