Ben Murray Pledges His Feeding Allowance To Unpaid Workers Of Osun State
In the lights of the uproar that greeted the announcement of generous allowances for members of the National Assembly, the senator representing Bayelsa East on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and philanthropist Mr. Ben Murray Bruce, has pledged to donate his wardrobe allowance to unpaid government workers in Osun State.
He made this known via his Twitter handle on Wednesday.
He said, “I, Ben Murray Bruce, will not sit down idly, while my fellow citizens die because salaries have not been paid.
“As a first step, I am immediately donating my wardrobe allowance to unpaid workers in Osun State and widows in my constituency.
“We are starting in Osun, but we will not end there. I will do as much to help workers who’ve not been paid in other states.
“I call on all my friends and followers on Twitter and Facebook to donate non-perishable food items for these our brothers in need.
“As soon as my wardrobe allowance is paid, I will divide it into two. Half will be publicly given to the Nigeria Labour Congress chairman (in) Osun.
“The other half will be publicly given to the head of widows association in my community of Akasa (Bayelsa State).”
