The Letter reads:
Your Excellency, Senator Ben Murray-Bruce,
I write to you this letter with all sense of humility and with deep respect for you, but it is sad for it not written to commend you of your good works, rather, it is to point out errors with hopes that the sun will shine again someday.
You are a business man, and like all business men, no matter the amount or worth of assets they have, it is never enough, and that’s why I cant seem to get past seeing all your moves and Showoff’s via social media as part of a political agenda. I may be fifteen(15) but I’m not a fool.
How else would you explain all the things you do and the reasons for which you do them? I’m certain even Mr. Onyeka Nwelue would agree with me on this one.
You are rich and we know it, you even said yourself that you didn’t use government funds to purchase the cars you bought from Innoson’s, makes me wonder what you use the funds for, considering the mouth gaping amount The Mekunas and The Mekunus make annually, I’d say earn but, it’s not earned. Im sure The Youths you so much care and solicit for would like to know.
I believe your actions are of mockery and not of good deeds, it’s like having a “starving community” and you offered them one(1) De rica of rice. What you’ve done is not an act of good, neither is it an act to spark the humanitarian fire in the hearts of your kind. What you’ve given to this starving community is something to fight and kill for, considering the fact that you and your kind buy rice in bags and in large quantities too and not per Derica.
To those who don’t know, “De rica” is a tin derived from the after use of a tomato paste with brand name De rica, it is also the standard measurement used to purchase grains by the common people(The masses).
Senator Bruce, you could have bought the whole fair, or at least, make a lengthy donation and it wouldn’t even take a pinch from your bank accounts, instead, you bought shoes, “a” bed sheet, “a” cap or hat, whatever that was, things you’ll barely even use or wear, I’m 110% certain. Besides everything you purchased couldn’t even lift N500 from its resting point.
You started a campaign #buynaijatogrow,and even took pictures, to the world you may be an activist, to me, you’re no different from our regular politicians exploiting weak masses for a political propaganda.
You keep saying things with zero selfless actions, are you a talker or a doer? The road is bad,why don’t you fix it? You have the money, the resources, the connection, you have what it takes, why then would you choose to be like our so called politicians who would rather inspire our hungry youths to fix the road themselves and then y’all politicians get acclaimed for acts they themselves never did, is that what you call inspirating? Or soliciting for a change?
You talked about seeing anger in youths, Oh hear me, when I say, the youths are not angry oh, the word in that context isn’t anger, for if they were angry, we would know. Also hear me when I say that, the anger and wrath of our youths should be the last thing anyone looks for, else it is found and it is catastrophic. The aristocrats would suffer more! The world right now needs no revolution, the stories of the French revolution and many others still touches me till today. I may be young but, I know the things that needs to be known.
THIS COUNTRY NIGERIA, AND THE WORLD HAS HAD ITS FAIR SHARE OF SPILLED BLOODS, LET THE KILLINGS BE STOPPED, LET THE SOIL TAKE RAIN AND BE FERTILE, AND THE AIR OF THE SKIES BE BREATHABLE!
I would like to send a word out to you and your people. The only way Nigeria will be whole again is when it is at peace, if our youths be at peace, we’d witness less crimes and less mayhem( The phrase “at peace” is ambiguous and I’d gladly break it down when my words won’t fall on deaf ears. I wrote a piece on “Giving” and “Standard of Living”,it’ll be a good place to start).
Until Politicians start seeing things the way they are (Nigerians are suffering), until y’all wake up determiners, and work effectively at achieving goals stated in campaigns. Go out there and “See”, live with,and live like the masses for a week straight, then y’all would know, I’m certain a lot of y’all would kick the bucket or fall ill in the short experiment. I don’t blame y’all though, when campaign managers be printing fliers and speeches for y’all.
As an athlete, I learnt that one will never grow if he keeps working on a skill he’s already good at during practice. Working on those difficult moves, that’s what makes him better!
The funds seized by the EFCC, what do they do with them? So much mouth opening figures all the time yet we still owe international debts thanks to y’all salaries.
Dollar rates be rising, who’s suffering? Nigerians be wondering, why? I say it’s because our leaders deal with U.S. dollars and not Zambian Kwacha or Iranian Riyal, if they did, those currencies would rapidly grow too for easy laundering. They call us thieves and criminals but they do the corporate stealing. That cyber criminal out there, how much did he get? Compared to the amounts recovered from our representative icons? Note. I’m not saying I’m in support of cyber crimes, just trying to buttress a point.
We have almost zero reliable working infrastructures because if it isn’t oil, it’s not worth doing. Zero humanitarian programs, except turn us into car washers thanks to Poverty Alleviation Schemes, or farmers, civil “SERVANTS” and other petty nonsense in the name of helping.
They send their blockhead called kids overseas to school, they end up being the one’s tarnishing hard built legacy and reputations of the poor serious ones who knew just how crucial it was to his family and country that he attains a college degree. Y’all kids end up being party starters and money spenders due to unfathomable wealth, who while their country is in Chaos, would spray US dollars at parties or clubs IN THE USA!
Your Excellency Sir, I urge you to please flee from deceit for your actions are not portraying The Man Of Hope you set out to be.
I haven’t heard of a single act of Kindness you’ve shown, but you’ve never failed to upgrade the toys at Silverbird Galleria, and have your kind of people and their kids come spend in it. A win win situation for you.
Let the words of this fifteen(15) year old hunt you and guide you. Be like that man who instead of purchasing a yatch, helped over fifteen(15) preschoolers secure a chance at college. If you won’t walk in his path or any good one, then please Baba Silverbird, as a friend of mine addresses you, Please quit showing off on twitter, WE NEED ACTIONS!
I wrote in a piece: “Do not give a rich man, gifts meant for the poor, for he shall laugh you to scorn, but give to the poor, gifts meant for the rich and he shall forever bless you and so will his Creator. A giving hand, giveth Life”. -Udoh Jhoney.
