Senator Ben Murray Bruce, the Senator representing Bayelsa East constituency, has launched an attack on Oby Ezekwesili after she announced her withdrawal from the 2019 presidential race.
Oby had reacted to the suspension of CJN Walter Innoighen by President Buhari writing;
‘this is an unconstitutional action! You, Mr President are a grave danger to our fragile Democracy. What happened to the Constitutional provision 292 on Discipline of Judges? Nigerians will not allow you the license to imperil our Democracy’.
Ben Bruce however used the opportunity to berate her saying;
‘you clapped in 2016 when the war against the judiciary began. Today, because you have fallen out with the tyrant you are shedding crocodile tears? Have some decency and save what is left of your tattered reputation. People like you brought us to this point with your gullibility’.
