DSS Operatives ‘Stop’ Ben Bruce From Greeting Buhari In Aso Villa

BEN BRUCE-DINNER-1Operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) barred Ben Murray Bruce, representative of Bayelsa east senatorial district, from exchanging pleasantries with President Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential villa on Monday.

According to Bruce, who joined his colleagues to a dinner to mark the 2016 democracy day, he had attempted to  greet the president like a senator did, but the security agent denied him access.BEN BRUCE-DINNER-CRITIC-1The Senator tweeted:

“I was at the Presidential villa today. Went to the President’s table. DSS wouldn’t allow me greet him but let another Senator greet him.”

“My critics say I shouldn’t criticize the president openly, so I go and meet him one on one and I’m blocked. Am I not a Nigerian citizen?”BEN BRUCE-DINNER-TWT-1“If PMB’s handlers selectively block access to him, he runs the risk of being surrounded only by sycophants!”BEN BRUCE-DINNER-TWT-2“I have nothing against the President, however, nobody is too important to be criticized and my mouth will never be silenced!”

BEN BRUCE-DINNER-2Bruce is known to be very critical of the current administration, particularly the president.

Few hours before the villa incident, he tweeted:

“It’s ‘fantastically corrupt’ that Nigeria maintains a 10 plane Presidential fleet whereas the PM of a rich nation like UK flies commercial!”BEN BRUCE-DINNER-TWT-3BEN BRUCE-DINNER-3

On Sunday, the lawmaker alleged that Buhari and his ministers spent the whole of last year giving excuses.
