A senator from Bayelsa State, Ben Murray-Bruce, has donated his wardrobe allowance to workers in Osun State, whose salaries have not been paid in the last eight months.
Murray-Bruce, on his Twitter handle, said “I, Ben Murray Bruce, will not sit down idle, while my fellow citizens die because salaries have not been paid.
“I am immediately donating my wardrobe allowance to unpaid workers in Osun State and widows in my constituency.
“As soon as my wardrobe allowance is paid, I will divide it into two. Half will be given to the Osun NLC chairman. The other half will be publicly given to the head of widows’ association in my community of Akasa.”
He called on all his friends and followers on Twitter and Facebook to donate non-perishable food items for “these our brothers in need.
“We are starting from Osun, but we will not end there. I will do as much to help workers who have not been paid in other states
