Newly sworn-in lawmaker who is currently using the social media to champion what he termed: ‘common sense revolution’, Senator Ben Murray-Bruce, has again posted series of tweets where he advocated for President Muhammadu Buhari to dispose jets in the presidential fleet.

In the strings of tweets posted @benmurraybruce on Monday morning, the Bayelsa-born businessman claimed that, “The Annual cost of maintaining Presidential Fleet (?5.3 Billion) can pay for 10k NYSC Corpers to start a business at 500k each #commonsense”.

He went on to urge Buhari to sell off the country’s 11 presidential jets, insisting that maintaining them at the cost of ?5.3 Billion per annum was antithetical to the nuggets of ”common sense”.

While urging Nigeria’s leaders to emulate President Joyce Banda of Malawi who discarded her nation’s presidential jet so she can as well board private airlines, the Senator queried: “Does it make #commonsense that our presidential air fleet is larger than the combined fleet of the Queen of England and the British PM?”
