– PDP Stalwart, Ben Bruce said Atiku will be a change agent like Ethiopia Prime Minister, Abiy Ahmed
Ben Bruce, a Peoples Democratic Party senator, in a recent statement has applauded the Prime Minister of Ethiopia, Abiy Ahmed on how he is managing the affairs of the African country.
He applauded the Prime Minister for giving women a lot of advantages in his government.
Ben Bruce went on to add that Abiy Ahmed is a change agent in Ethiopia, and that the PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar will be the change agent in Nigeria.
He stressed that Pres. Muhammadu Buhari can’t be the change agent.
According to his statement, Ben Bruce said, “Abiy Ahmed, the 42-year-old elected PM of Ethiopia gave women half of the ministerial positions in his government as well as the office of President and Chief Justice. This is a leader that is a change agent. This is the type of leader Atiku will be. The type Buhari can’t be.”
The Nigerian Senator further disclosed that the country can emulate from the ongoing policies being put in place by Abiy Ahmed in Ethiopia especially on empowerment of the masses.
He said, “Nigeria can learn from Abiy Ahmed’s policies of empowering women and inclusivity amongst Ethiopia’s 80 different tribes. Ethiopia is Africa’s Fastest Growing economy according to WEF, which projects their GDP to grow 8.5% this year which is 4 times Nigeria’s growth projection.”
Sen. Ben Bruce has also responded to a statement released by Min. of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed over the investigation of Atiku Abubakar on the collapse of Bank PHB.
He said, “Bank PHB has been defunct for a decade, but it is the day after Atiku proved them wrong by coming to America that they suddenly remember that he has a case to answer? This is such a disappointment. I thought their fight back would be something smart. But this? This is pathetic!”
