It is no longer news that the Senator representing Bayelsa East constituency in the Upper chambers of the National Assembly, Ben Murray Bruce, did not contest the last National Assembly elections. It is in this regard that the controversial senator took to his twitter handle to react.
He revealed that the reason he didn’t contest the election was that he had to honour a zoning agreement in his zone already.
Power is sweet. But not so sweet that one can’t do without it of walk away from it. I walked away from it. I voluntarily stepped down to honour a rotational agreement in my zone. I am saying this because those who think the @OfficialPDPNig is finished do not understand power.
