Ben Murray-Bruce and Rotimi Amaechi fights  in Twitter

The minister for transportation and former governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi, Senator representing Bayelsa East,  Ben Murray-Bruce and a popular blogger, Japhet Omojuwa, today engaged each other in twitter jibes over political and personal differences.

Senator Bruce fired the first salvo towards Amaechi when he was apparently replying a jibe from Japhet Omojuwa. Omojuwa had tweeted that the senator should not be taken seriously  for not criticising former president Goodluck Jonathan when he was in power.

Senator Bruce replied Omojuwa, mocking the blogger.

Then he fired another tweet, this time targeting Amaechi, who was alleged to have spent about N82 million on a dinner. The tweet was reference to a statement cerdited to President Muhammadu Buhari that Nigerians were not welcome in the United Kingdom because of the criminal activities some Nigerians engaged in over there.

But Amaechi did not take the veiled reference to his alleged extravagant spending lying low. He blasted the senator for not being bold enough to mention the name of the minister in his tweet.
“A coward who is not bold enough to name the minister that he alleged criminally spent N80M on dinner is unfit to sit in our senate chambers,” he tweeted.

Bruce came back with another tweeting to mock the minister. He referred to the recent Supreme Court judgment that upheld the election of Nyesom Wike as governor. He said the judgement “Wike’d” Amaechi.
Amaechi responded with a tweet of his own, accusing the minister of being active only on Twitter and not on the floor of the Senate.
He tweeted, “I will not respond to innuendos. Be courageous, name the minister. We know you talk here & do ‘siddon’ look where you are elected to talk.”
