His tweets come at an interesting time. President-Elect Muhammadu Buhari is known for his tough anti-corruption stance and is widely expected to cut the cost of government.

Notable figures such as Sen. Bukola Saraki and others have admitted to the need to cut the cost of running the National Assembly.

According to civic responsibility start-up Budget, the National Assembly budget is higher than that of 21 states in Nigeria.

This is obviously outrageous and Mr Bruce seems to be unhappy about it.

Still, his words have not come without criticism as many twitter users also reacted and faulting his sudden outburst and attacks on government officials.

Twitter users bemoaned his silence throughout the President Goodluck Jonathan administration while other questioned his effort and dedication during his time as the Director-General of NTA. Still others questioned his ability to champion the causes he has mentioned and the wisdom of some of the policy ideas he has advocated, such as protectionism for products manufactured in Nigeria.

Come May 29th, Nigerians will have an opportunity to hold Sen. Murray-Bruce and the Buhari-led executive government to account for the promises made to Nigerians during their campaigns.

Over the past few days the senator-elect has been going on about how public funds are being wasted by politicians in the country, calling for measures to be taken to curb this.
