Russian Invasion: Ben Bruce Blasts Nigerian Billionaires Over Failure To Evacuate Nigeria

Russian Invasion: Ben Bruce Blasts Nigerian Billionaires Over Failure To Evacuate Nigeria.

Nigerians in Ukraine have written to President Muhammadu Buhari and well-wishers in Nigeria requesting assistance as the conflict between Ukraine and Russia escalates.

Those stuck in Ukraine are begging for evacuation in a letter acquired by IJAW NEWS. On Saturday, the federal government published a list of the borders via which Nigerians escaping the Ukraine-Russian conflict can enter Poland.

The Federal Government, through Chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabire-Erawa, advocated borders for Nigerians escaping the crisis.

Hrebenne-Rawa Ruska, Korczowa-Krawkowiec, Medyka-Szeginie, and Budomierz-Hurszew are among the boundaries.

As of yesterday, the Federal Government has accepted 256 Nigerians in Romania and Hungary escaping the Russia-Ukraine situation.

In light of the aforementioned development, Ben Murray-Bruce, a former senator from Bayelsa East Senatorial District, chastised Nigerian billionaires on Tuesday, claiming that many of them have taken their girl friends “to Harrods and fancy unnecessary races in Monaco” on their private jets, but could not do the same for Nigerians seeking evacuation in Ukraine.

His words are as follows:

“This crisis in Ukraine has lingered with Nigerian citizens unable to find a solution. I have a question for our billionaires and those aspiring for elective office.

“How many of you have fueled your private jets and sent them to neighbouring countries around Ukraine to help evacuate Nigerians’ home? None!

“But how many of you have fueled the same to carry your girlfriends to Harrods and fancy unnecessary races in Monaco? A number of you. Search your conscience and be a useful and genuinely charitable Nigerian for once.”
