#InsideNigeria Nigeria Has No Business Signing Deals With China – Sen. Ben Bruce
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Senator representing Bayelsa East constituency and Chairman, Senate Committee on Privatization, Senator Ben Murray-Bruce on Tuesday June 14, berated the Federal Government for signing rail deals with China, adding that the racks can be produced in the Ajaokuta Iron and Steel Company.
Senator Bruce made this comment in Ajaokuta, Kogi State when he led the Senate and House of Representatives Joint Committee on Privatization to Ajaokuta Iron and Steel Company.
The ‘Buy Naija and Grow the Naira’ agitator stressed that such trade deals showed lack of coordination, adding that he present state of the steel company in Ajaokuta did not speak well of the country.
According, to him, “For 22 years they should have had a plan through the minister of national planning. The minister of national planning should be the one integrating the policies of any government in power at the particular time.
“When you go through the detailed presentation and listen to arguments it is difficult to draw conclusions. When you don’t listen to the reasons why you are here in the first place?
“That is why it was important for all of us to listen to the arguments and understand the reason why. But let me say this, I am really touched by the presentation and the kind of leadership you have here. What is really clear to me is that the management of Ajaokuta Steel plant has on board very patriotic Nigerians because you must never sell your soul for money.
“First of all, you are a Nigerian, secondly you want to develop this beautiful country and create job opportunities for your people, and more importantly you want to create an environment where those of us in office will look back and say while I was there I did something for my people, but obviously this is not the case.”
