Some constituents of Bayelsa east have threatened to recall Senator Ben Murray-Bruce from the upper legislative chamber for failing to attract “a single project” to his constituency.
This was disclosed in a statement issued on Tuesday by Samuel Tari (Nembe), Ambrose Joseph (Brass) and Mark John (Ogbia), all leaders of student bodies.
“Since Murray-Bruce became a senator, he has failed to look into the basic needs and challenges currently bedeviling the Bayelsa east senatorial district, such as issues of education, as most of our students cannot access good quality education,” the statement read.
“He has failed to attract a single project to the district in terms of infrastructure, roads and others.
“He has continuously and deliberately ignored efforts by the people to create a working relationship that will bring out purposeful leadership for our people.
“We are, hereby, giving him an ultimatum of 10 days, starting from August 21, 2017. If he fails to meet with us, we shall take our protest to the national assembly.
“We will mobilize all the students, our mothers, and our fathers. We will initiate his recall process. Our people deserve a better treatment from him. We request to have a town hall meeting.”
