Former Senator representing Bayelsa East and a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ben Murray-Bruce, has hailed President Bola Tinubu over key decisions made in his two weeks in office.
The media entrepreneur said the President is making “the right calls”, adding that he turned Lagos into the 6th largest economy in Africa, and now he is in charge of the largest economy in Africa.
In a tweet via his verified Twitter handle on Friday, Murray-Bruce said Nigerians should watch out for Tinubu’s administration in the coming days.
He wrote; “President Bola Tinubu is making the right calls. He turned Lagos into the 6th largest economy in Africa, and now he is in charge of the largest economy in Africa. Watch out.”
Naija News reports that Bruce’s comment comes in the wake of the removal of fuel subsidy and the suspension of Godwin Emefiele as the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
However, some Nigerians took the comment of the tweet to berate the former Senator for commending Tinubu for the decisions made in the last two weeks in office.

“Exercise wisdom and refrain from compromising your integrity in pursuit of validation from this current administration, which will likely have a short-lived tenure. A new Nigeria is here and we shall not forget those who turned their backs on us as we struggle.”
