Nigerians have reacted to a picture of Ben Murray-Bruce’s son on twitter. The senator shared the photo with the caption "at the high school graduation of my son, Cody Murray Bruce", on Sunday, June 2.
Nigerians criticised the senator for going against what he preaches about growing the economy by patronising products and services in the country, seeing that he sent his own son abroad to study.
Many on the micro messaging platform called out his stark hypocrisy on everything he has said under his favourite ‘common sense’ anthem.
Nigerians on twitter used the opportunity to remind him of his many thoughts on how to grow the economy to show how he has failed them by the singular act of sending his ward to school outside of the country.
See his tweet and accompanying reactions below:
The senator was reminded of his comment about the Nigerian jersey during the World Cup.
The senator's son was not paying school fees in naira.
Others on the platform went all out to call the senator a hypocrite and never hid how they felt about him.
The senator was called out for not practicing what he preaches.
Some others who commented on the picture, however, congratulated his son for the graduation while also bashing his father.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Senator Murray-Bruce lamented the nation’s continued quest to discover oil in the north rather than educate about 12 million out of school children.
