Lagos - The media mogul turned senator, Ben Murray Bruce puts his common sense where his mouth is.
The senator’s tweets as the story broke that Arik Air had resumed flights, seemed like he thought he was personally responsible for the resumption of services.
He has consistently voiced his preference for Arik Air, often castigating President Buhari’s administration for not patronising the local airline.
Few days ago, it was reported that the airline was suspending flights as a result of inability to buy Jet A1 fuel, as a result of either debts to oil suppliers or scarce foreign exchange.
As usual, Ben Murray-Bruce was very ‘troubled’ by the development.
By Wednesday morning however, the airline had resumed flights after announcing that they had issues with their insurance company.
If FG & States spend a fraction of the over 80 billion they've budgeted for travels on Arik, Naira will appreciate #BuyNaijaToGrowTheNaira
