Nigerians have blasted Senator Ben Murray-Bruce for his brazen disregard for transparency and accountability in the 8th assembly.

The entertainment mogul turned politicians has consistently ignored calls to give details and account for constituency projects nominated in the 2017 budget.

The senator representing Bayelsa East Senatorial District has also refused to acknowledge the requests made by transparency platform, Tracka.

The latest request by Tracka is that Senator Murray-Bruce provides the implementation status on the N70m for the processing and value addition in Brass, Nembe and Ogbia LGA, Bayelsa state.

But the refusal of the self-styled Common Sense senator to reply Tracka after one month got some Nigerians angry, fueling the believe that he is not responding because the project was not executed.

Replying to the tweet by Tracka, Shogsy tweeted, “He is busy defending democracy at the NASS which is more important than accounting for project funds diverted. Hypocrites.”

Seyifunmi shared Shogsy’s sentiment and warned that he could even go one step further. “Democracy is under siege by calling him out to account for the funds collected for paper projects. He will report you to embassies so you won’t go out of Nigeria. Misplaced-priority senator😜”

Honourable Abimbola reckoned that Senator Murray-Bruce should apply the same zest with he replies direct messages. “Dear Senator, the efforts you are putting everyday to response to your twitter DM, kindly apply it to respond to the request of#TrackaNG as they are requesting for explaination of the projects you have been paid to execute.”

Ifeanyi Ifebi had a different theory. “He won’t respond. After all they are not accountable to the people but their pockets. See the way he has been screaming up and down regarding the happening at the national assembly. They don’t treat their constituents with such seriousness.”

E pluribus unum sent the Bayelsa seantor a reminder. “Unku @benmurraybruce, how far naa? @TrackaNG still dey await your response, we know you’ve bn busy saving our democracy… Well-done. It’s time for #commonsense Accountability.”

Ayodeji argued that he could be directing a new drama. “He’s busy producing dramas for PDP senate actors.”
