Ben Murray Bruce, the CEO of Silverbird group, in his habitual propensity, took to the social media to challenge anyone who has a record of him stealing from the government to found his company, to publish it.

According to him, his business that has become an empire started with a loan of #20,000 he got from his father 35 years ago.

Senator Bruce claimed that when he took over NTA, it was broadcasting six hours a day but he brought 24 hour television broadcast to the country. He is also credited to have revived the cinema culture in Nigeria as well as entertainment on radio and on TV.

In a series of successive tweets, he said:

“I founded Silverbird in 1980 with a ₦20, 000 loan from my father and on November 21st we will be celebrating 35 years. Thank you Nigeria!”

“Silverbird is evidence you dont need to steal to make it in Nigeria. If anyone has evidence (not innuendo) that I stole, please publish it,” he posted on his Twitter handle.

There have been reports in the media that the business tycon might have enriched himself during his days as Director General of Nigerian Television Authority, NTA, but he has denied such allegations and challenged anyone with evidence to publish same.
