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.
