Ben Bruce throws jabs at Delta state, says no Success ‘dem go flog dem go tire’ phenomenon in Bayelsa

Senator Ben Murray Bruce has said that Bayelsa state is so focused on education, that it has issued a warning to parents of out-of-school children.

Parents of children not in school in the state, will most likely be arrested and jailed according to the federal lawmaker.

The Senator who is from Bayelsa state said the governor of the stays, Dickson Seriake is one that reads and as such, puts a lot of premium on education.

The lawmaker representing Bayelsa East at the senate even took a swipe at the government of Delta state, using the trending story of the school girl, Success, sent away from school, for nonpayment of school levy.

Mr Bruce said there isn’t any of such “dem go flog them go tire” phenomenon in Bayelsa state.

His words: So focused is Bayelsa on education that they have warned that the parents of any child not in school would be arrested and jailed. There can be no Success ‘dem go flog dem go tire’ phenomena in Bayelsa. That is one thing I am proud of Henry Seriake Dickson for. He is a reader leader.


  1. I wish Mr Onuesoke, the blind defender of the lackluster governor Okowa educational and infrastructural policies had taken time to note that Delta State has suddenly become a state to make jest of. When Prof Pat Utomi said same, he was villified and crucified because the advice came from an opposition but now that “Mr Commonsense” had spoken in a jest way, no negative response because Senator Ben Bruce is a PDP person. Shame on Onuesoke and Okowa for ruining the future of our little ones education.
