Silverbird Will Bounce Back – Senator Ben Murray-Bruce


,Senator representing Bayelsa East constituency and CEO of SilverBird Group, Ben Murray-Bruce says that the Silver Bird group will bounce back and return to business soon.

Senator Ben Murray-Bruce has said the situation which led the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) to take possession of Silverbird Galleria today, is being resolved.

AMCON took possession of the Silverbird Galleria in Abuja and Lagos, which houses the Senator’s companies on Thursday morning over unpaid debts.

Closure of the Silverbird premises disrupted business activities both for customers as well as staff, as they were denied entry into the premises.

Responding to the incident, Senator Ben Murray-Bruce however, said that in its thirty-six years of operation, Silverbird has encountered several challenges, but had always outlasted every one of them.

He assured that the company though presently challenged by this closure, would surely overcome them.  The Senator shared this via his twitter handle @benmurraybruce;

“I have been on an international flight and have only just landed. The situation is being resolved and things will be back to normal. 

“In 36 years, Silverbird has grown and like anybody, it will face challenges. Tough times don’t last. But we, as tough people, outlast them.”

Murray-Bruce, a Peoples Democratic Party Senator, representing Bayelsa East Constituency, has been a staunch critic of the economic policies of the Federal Government under the administration of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Late on Wednesday, the “common sense” senator had taken a swipe at President Buhari’s administration, berating him for focusing only on the anti-corruption war to the detriment of the economy.

He also argued that the present low price of crude oil could not be used as an excuse for the poor state of the nation’s economy.
