The former senator of Bayelsa East, Ben Murray-Bruce, has lost his mother.
The “common sense advocate” announced the sad news via his verified Twitter handle on Tuesday.
He wrote; ”Life. Indeed, like sand in the wind, today it’s here, tomorrow it’s gone. My mum is gone.
“She died at 4:40am this morning. My gem of inestimable value, my support system, my best friend, my everything—she’s gone.
“My consolation is that in her lifetime, I gave her not just everything that money could buy, but most importantly, I gave her my presence, my time, my everything.
“On uncountable occasions, I will go to her house to hug her and play with her for no reason but love, the kind that only sons share with their mums.
“I love you, mum, and I miss you. This one hurts so bad. Forever yours.”
