Media mogul and Senator-elect, Ben Murray-Bruce, in an interview with Vanguard, has explained why he is very active now fighting Nigerian elites.

In recent times, the Silverbird Group Chairman has been vocal on social media, blaming the Nigerian leaders for being insensitive to plights of the masses.

In the interview, Murray-Bruce explained that, "I am fighting against the elite. Definitely, I am fighting them. When they drink that champagne that can educate a child, they should know that I am fighting them.

"We need to enact laws that favour the masses. The biggest problem in Nigeria today is that our consumption is on the high while production is low. Our leaders in APC, PDP, Labour, APGA and others are all guilty of one thing, which is consuming the resources of the majority of Nigerians.

"Imagine a situation where governors fly private jets, Commissioners drive a twenty million naira car. Commissioners flying first class, living like kings while the state cannot pay salary of its workers. If a commissioner can have three or four policemen around him, who is policing the poor where they are being [email protected], maimed, robbed and killed?”

However, some Nigerians have questioned why he is just speaking up, having 'benefitted' from the 'system'.
