The Minister of common sense (Ben Bruce) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to reset his moves in his anti-corruption crusade during a session in the senate on the current economic recession in the Country on Thursday.
According to Ben Bruce, Buhari’s approach to the anti-graft war is scaring away foreign investors because the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) was investigating anyone with large sums of cash.
“Buhari’s approach to anti-corruption is wrong: let us forget the foreign investors, what about the local investors?” he said
“If people are afraid, they will not invest; fear will not be a policy to grow the economy.
“Money is a coward; it only goes to places where there is peace and tranquility.
“I have a friend who paid legitimate N50 million into his account and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) came and picked him up.
“We cannot be afraid to be Nigerians; we cannot be afraid to live in our country.”
According to him, former President Olusegun Obasanjo waged a war against corruption also but it didn’t put fear in Nigerians.
As we all know Patience Jonathan, wife of Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan is under investigation for having $20m and we all know that GEJ is from Bayelsa and guess where Ben Bruce is from.
Call this solidarity or just common sense. Whichever way you are not totally wrong after all ‘he who wears the shoes knows exactly where it pinches.
