The demystification of Ben Murray-Bruce, the senator representing Bayelsa East constituency, continues with each comment he makes on social media.
Fresh from knocks he received over his condemnation of the N1.04 trillion fine imposed on MTN for failing to deactivate unregistered SIM cards after an August 11, 2015 deadline, the showbiz impresario tweeted himself into another controversy on Wednesday after President Muhammadu Buhari inaugurated his long awaited cabinet.
Using the hashtag #Challengeourminister, the former NTA director-general took a dig at the new ministers, with cheeky messages about what is expected of them.
His challenge to former Governors Babatunde Fashola and Chibuike Amaechi of Lagos and Rivers states respectively go the most knocks.
