Ben Murray-Bruce, chairman Silverbird Group and Bayelsa East senator-elect has proffered a solution to the lingering fuel scarcity but his theory seem not to go well with Nigerians.
On his Twitter account, he wrote: “With the fuel scarcity, I feel for my people in Nigeria. That’s why I introduced the electric car. I drive it without bothering about fuel.”

Murray-Bruce who has became a Twitter sensation since he was elected senator was thrown aback by the reaction of Nigerians, most of whom feel that Murray-Bruce will not follow up with his anti-corruption drive on social media.
Here are some tweets in response to Murray-Bruce:
