[The Legislative Blog]: Senator Murray-Bruce proposes a “part-time Senate” but TwitterNG won’t hear of it

Senator Ben Murray-Bruce continues to fall victim of these Twitter attacks because he just won’t learn. In his few years as Senator and common sense exponent, Murray-Bruce has become more famous for proposing policies via social media but staying remarkably silent on the House floor.

Needless to say, he’s loaded with brilliant, progressive ideas but he has constantly failed at executing them or pushing for them to be executed by the appropriate agencies or at the very least, embody the change he wishes to see in the country’s political system.

It was one of such days yesterday when the Bayelsan Senator suggested that Nigeria should adopt a part-time Senate system where lawmakers are paid only sitting allowances.

Yes sure. It does sound good and workable, especially in these climes where senators are overly paid and salaries are never proportionate to value offered in return.

But the Twitter commentariat for the umpteenth time would not have Murray-Bruce remove himself from Nigeria’s leadership and propose policies he cannot defend when push actually comes to shove. So they came for him. AGAIN!

He sure has good intentions but maybe keep them off Twitter?
