The lawmaker representing Bayelsa East Senatorial District in the National Assembly made this assertion via Twitter on Sunday, March 31.
Ben Bruce argued that those who open the doors of schools shut the gates of prisons.
He said, “Dear President @MBuhari, Invest in education, not just in anti-corruption.
“Instead of throwing people in jail, remember that he who opens the doors of a school closes the doors of prisons.
“It is sad that you have built not ONE school. Not even one. Yet you want crime to end?.”
Senator Bruce also spoke on behalf of kids who leave school to get a job and the growing rate of unemployment in the country.
