Senator Ben Murray Bruce has urged politicians in Nigeria not to hold on to power as that isn’t the only way to be influential.
According to the senator, who won’t be returning to the senate in 2019, President Muhammadu Buhari isn’t as influential as Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote.
The senator said this via his Twitter handle on Thursday. He advised politicians to hold on to honour rather than power.
In his words:
Why do politicians think power only comes from political offices? Buhari isn’t the most powerful Nigerian. @AlikoDangote is far more influential and powerful than him. Our politicians need a paradigm shift. Don’t hold on to power. Hold on to honour and power will ever follow you.
