Ben Murray-Bruce, the senator representing Bayelsa East in the National Assembly, has issued warning over a steady decline in the nation’s economy since the All Progressives Congress (APC) came to power.
Senator Murray-Bruce said, if left unchecked, Nigeria would become like Venezuela presently a major oil exporter in the world but currently going through economic crises.
Sen. Ben Bruce, further stressed that only change in leadership would help Nigeria as a whole.
On his Twitter page, he wrote, “In 2017, 18 African countries grew their GDP above 5%. Nigeria was not among. What makes us the Giant of Africa? Since 2015, Nigeria has been on a steady decline on almost every economic index known to man.
“If we don’t change leadership democratically we may end up like Venezuela.”
