Senator Ben Murray-Bruce is of the opinion that the healthcare system in Nigeria will only improve when Doctors and other medical practitioners are paid properly. Suggesting that that the Jumbo pay being paid to Politicians like him should be reduced, Murray-Bruce said:
"A leader opens himself to ridicule when he preaches made in Nigeria at a conference then is escorted to board his convoy of foreign cars! The recession is caused by the mentality of our leaders. If we want our healthcare to improve then let us stop paying politicians like me jumbo pay and instead pay doctors jumbo pay. If we want our education sector to improve let us stop paying politicians like me jumbo salary and rather pay teachers maximum allowances."
