    Zootopia is a good movie. Everybody needs to see it. It’s indescribable to be honest. You need to see for yourselves. Every human needs to see it. Very important lessons.

    Sen. Shehu Sani just responded to Sen Ben Murray Bruce, and in a nutshell “It’s not everything the security agents does that Mr president will know” we all know Sen Shehu isn’t one to tell a lie cos of political favours…..#Bruce#DramaKing……Let’s move on abeg.

      @Keke, I agree with you. Senator Sanni is a good one to watch out for. He is APC but, certainly not a worshipper.
      Having said that, this is a case of the “help” being more powerful than the boss. Intolerance has no room in a democracy. Freedom of speech does. Senator Bruce is in d opposition. I do not expect him to famz the President. Bubu’s handlers may just be his ruin.

    Ben Bruce the complainer. His core competency is talking about others. Months back, he offered his allowances to Governor Aregbesola for the payment of salaries owed meanwhile his own state Bayelsa also owed salaries!

    ok, so you have a right to block your ‘haters’ on tweeter when their opinions are not palatable to you but you can’t stand it when you get blocked in real life. All of a sudden you decide it might be wise to have a one on one with the President instead of bashing him in the open, shouldn’t that have been the initial approach instead of the latter? Your sudden ‘common sense’ is coming too late. Continue with your noise-making on social media…

      Everybody cannot like Buhari and since pdp is in disarray, we need people who can challenge Buhari as all of Nigeria has gone dumb.

    Ben Bruce often blocks people who criticize him on twitter. Now he is offended that he was blocked from meeting the President. What goes around comes around!

    ben bruce blocks people on Twitter for directly insulting him and not for airing their views which may contradict his. don’t see any reason with the dss not letting him get close to the president. their is a big difference between both cases


    May 31, 2016 at 1:38 pm

    Ben Bruce Muray. You are such a “cry baby” Why don’t you forget that saga and move on. Instead of trying to milk that forever. A word is enough for the wise, I’ m just saying.

    People like Ben Bruce are important for democracy, When you are President in a Democracy you are a Public servant taking criticism is part of the job, I have not seen Ben insult the President, but he has criticized his policies. Am certain a lot of people here insulted GEJ when he was President.

      Why is he only critizing it on twitter? Isn;t he a senator?

      Don’t let this man fool nigerians. He’s only concerned about his personal ambition.

      Pls. tell dem o. All of us cannot be bowing down to Buhari. All the people here supporting Buhari are children of the new thieves.

    I got educated recently on the fact that at times, one would imagine they are having adult conversations on an issue not realising kids are the one tapping away on their parents phones. Hope those seeing nothing wrong with Mr. Bruce, s experience since he criticises the president are either the kids on this platform or are just having laughs. There is something called presidential attitude- it is stature above the pedestrian and never discriminates against people simply because they dont support you politically. This is because a president, to succeed, needs constructive criticism more than songs of sycophants

    You guys remember the Nigerian movie “The Meeting” ? where Rita Dominic’s character was more powerful than the commissioner himself?hmmm…i think same scenario just applied with Oga Bruce’s experience! lool!

      May 31, 2016 at 7:27 pm

      God forbid.
      This man is only concerned about his personal ambitions and being great.

      If you’re so concerned with the future of the nation, As a senator shouldn’t rally ur people in the senate to pass bills that will improve the lives of Nigerians?

      All this twitter only common sense he’s been displaying- Who he epp?

    So many dead brains with mobile technology. They can’t do more than abusive contribution…i bet the President gave an order that Senator Ben shouldn’t be let close to him so he (Mr Presid) doesn’t loose his temper and react disgracingly. And if he claims to be unaware,then wahala dey oo. Tip of the day…watch more of korean epic series,it will help u understand the kyna politics played in our beloved naija…bleaching cream doesn’t work on leopards, agbada doesn’t de-militarize a general. na God hand we dey.
