Nigeria – Senator Ben Bruce, representing Bayelsa east, has challenged minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, to make sure he uses Nigeria’s public transport system at least once in a month.
In a series of tweets the senator also called on Babatunde Fashola, who has been assigned the ministry of power, works and ministry, to halt the use of generators in his home, “so that he can feel what Nigerians are feeling”.
“Congrats to our new minister of aviation, let’s challenge our minister to confirm neither he nor his aides will fly first-class at tax payers’ expense. Let’s challenge our minister of transport to confirm he will use various public transports at least once a month,” he wrote.
“Congrats to @Gov_Rajifashola, let’s challenge our minister of power to confirm he won’t use generator so he’ll feel what Nigerians are feeling.” He went on to challenge other ministers to eat “Nigeria-made foods”, Nigerian hospitals, and other locally-made products.
