The senator representing Bayelsa East, Ben Murray Bruce has reacted over the statement made by the Information Minister, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, that the Federal government spends N3.5 million every month to the feed the leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, Ibrahim El Zakzaky.

 

According to Ben, he said “If President Mohammadu Buhari can afford ₦3.5 million per month to feed Ibrahim El Zakzaky, then I don’t see why he can’t still afford ₦30,000 per month to pay the new minimum wage.

 

Adding that since N116,000 can be spend a day to feed El Zakzakky, Nigerian workers should join Zakzaky in detention so that they can be fed too.

 

The Senator stated this in his twitter page.

 

He said “If President @Mohammadu Buhari can afford ₦3.5 million per month to feed Ibrahim El Zakzaky, then I don’t see why he can’t afford ₦30,000 per month to pay the new minimum wage. Or should Nigerian workers join Zakzaky in detention so they can feed at ₦116,000 a day too?
