Ben Murray-Bruce, former senator representing Bayelsa East, has announced the demise of Margaret, his mother.


In a post via his social media handles, the ex-lawmaker said his mother died in the early hours of Tuesday.

He also said his mother’s demise “hurts so bad”, adding that she was his “support system, best friend and everything.”

“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,” he wrote on Instagram.

The entrepreneur, however, said he is consoled by the fact that he gave her all he could to make her happy during her lifetime.

“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,” he added.

“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.”


Margaret’s death comes about two years after the former senator also lost Evelyn, his wife, who died on March 20, 2020.
