London, June 3, 2018 (AltAfrika)-Nigerians on twitter have lambasted senator Ben Bruce for his hypocritical comment over the raving Super eagles jersey .
The senator representing Bayelsa East constituency, in Bayelsa State, Nigeria had taken to twitter to criticise the the federal government and the football federation for award of the jersey contract to Nike claiming that the Eagles world cup jersey could have been produced in Aba , Nigeria
” I bought made in Nigeria @innosonvehicles and made in Aba clothes because I believe in Nigeria. That’s why I started #BuyNaijaToGrowTheNaira campaign. We can’t grow our economy from abroad. We can only grow if we patronise our own goods. @NGSuperEagles could’ve been made in Aba.
However, the “common sense” senator who thought he could score another cheap political goal got more than he bargained for . Below are a few of reply he got
Stop this please. Come on!!! There are tech advancements behind jersey making which local tailors can’t afford for example the Nike Vapor Kits with AeroSwift Technology Anchor Advanced Football Performance System use in making Nike jerseys and other jerseys. This is common sense
Ben Bruce wants Aba tailors to make jersey for Super Eagles, but the manager of his Silverbird is an Indian who treats Nigerians who work there as slaves. He did not see any Nigerian competent enough to manage his company.
Sorry Sir but I think you’re ignorant and have no idea about sport sponsorship and jersey production. Nike pays the NFF to produce Nigeria jersey, do you know that?? And do you have any idea about the technology involved. Aba folks don’t have the capacity period
