Senator Ben Bruce, the lawmaker representing Bayelsa central senatorial district, has alleged that the Department of State Services (DSS) today prevented him from greeting President Muhammadu Buhari at a dinner organised for National Assembly members.
The dinner was organised to mark the 2016 Democracy Day, and further to appreciate the National Assembly Leadership.
Known for his critical stance on government and criticism of Mr. Buhari, the senator took to his social media page to let his followers know.
"I was at the Presidential villa today. Went to the President's table. DSS wouldn't allow me greet him but let another Senator greet him!," he wrote.
