Social networking platform, Twitter was turned into a battle-field on Sunday, as the Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, and a serving Senator, Ben Bruce engaged in a twitter fight over the activities of the current government.

The fight was set off by a tweet posted by a popular tweeter user, Japhet Omojuwa, who tweeted that Ben Bruce should not be taken seriously.

“The reason I will NEVER take people like Ben Bruce serious is because when they saw a leader (GEJ) do wrong, they kept quiet. Don’t be Bruce,” he said.







Responding, the Bayelsa Senator chose to use the recent comments credited to President Muhammadu Buhari that some Nigerians are giving the country a bad image by engaging in nefarious activities around the world.

While condemning the president’s comments, Mr. Bruce wrote on his twitter page that “Your own minister spent ₦80 million on a one day dinner, yet it is your citizens you accuse of being criminals #IAmANigerianNotACriminal”.




The tweet seemed apparently targeted at Mr. Amaechi whose administration was accused of spending N80 million to organised a dinner for Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka.

Apparently sensing the jibe thrown at him by the Senator, Mr. Amaechi wasted no time in responding to Mr. Bruce; accusing him of being a coward.

“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 said.



The Senator responded to Mr. Amaechi by referring to the recent Supreme Court judgment that upheld the election of Nyesom Wike as governor, thereby, stifling the hope of the APC candidate and Mr. Amaechi’s ally, Dakuku Peterside.

He posted another tweet on his handle @benmurraybruce saying, “When you have been Wike’d, you become wicked! But you will always be my beloved brother, no matter how much you transfer the anger on me.”



The Transport Minister reacted by accusing the Bayelsa Senator of only finding his voice on twitter while he is hardly seen contributing to debates in the Senate.


“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,” he said.

  1. Guilty conscience that fears every accusation. Clear conscience fears no accusation.
    However, Nigeria is becoming very interesting....big men are fighting. Too bad to eat poor men's money.

  4. Bruce is just seeking attention. Can somebody tell him that this is the most un intelligent way of selling one self to Nigerians. Very dull approach of making a point.

  5. Oga Rotimi has his flaws this we all know. But I want to agree with him. Sen. Bruce is just a twitter lion. He talks too much claiming to be making common sense via d media yet very quiet on the floor of the senate. Sen. Bruce abeg b more active on d floor of Senate. #walkthetalk

  8. I am surprised ameachi can be so insulting. Even when he has called u his brother. U still cast insults on a sitting senator openly. This is highly regrettable. That a sitting minister can descend so low to cast insult publicly is an insult to President buhari. U deserve to be sacked.

  10. Bruce is coward. Why not tell Nigerians WHY he kept QUIET when his kinsman Jonathan was destroying Nigeria? That was the accusation of a common Nigerian like us. But instead of CLEARING himself, he used WAYO to attack Ameachi .that's AVOIDANCE because he was part and parcel of atrocities. Ameachi is a real man who tackled Jonathan .so who is Bruce fooling. WAYO man.. not even contributing on Senate floor yet receiving millions as salary.

  12. PDP is luck, APC is not like them, by now the remaining PDP would have run out of this country.GEJ destroyed this country but none of them say something including common sense Bruse willis. If you have a case against Amaechi charge him to court. Your common sense is becoming a useless sense.

  13. Not calling the name of the minister is not cowardice. Nigerians know who is being referred to. Must your name be called or you are looking someone's time to waste in a libel suit?

  15. Bruce has no moral standing to accuse anyone of stealing because he did worse things as NTA Director, the proceeds from which he built Silverbird TV and Cinema.

  16. Jesus alleged that one of his disciples shall betray him without naming the culprit and they started exonerating themselves. Is Amaechi the only minister in Buhari's cabinet?.Amaechi exonerate yourself!

  18. Ben Bruce really need to speak about his stewardship as NTA DG. Or is this not about common sense???? Kettle calling pot black!

    ReplyDelete
  19. If Sen. Ben Murray-Bruce was to pay for all these his "Common Sense" rhetoric will he still be doing it? When he contested for the Bayelsa governorship and lost the nomination we never heard how bad this country was!
    His vituperations recently have only shown that common sense is not common.

  22. Mr Bruce or whatever you call yourself. 'he who must come for equity must come with clean hand' Tell us about your stewardship in NTA. or you think we don't know your old transmitter that you bought for the the whole NTA stations in the country that can only be powered by generators. to have you in the Senate beats my imagination and shows how backward we are as a Nation that celebrates failures like you and your colleagues in the Senate.

  26. I wish Buhari will probe Amaechi, how can he spent 80m on just a dinner. there's God ooo

  27. Please nigerians can you help me out on what moralty is all about? Ben Bruce has quickly forgotten his few years of stewardship in NTA. The same organization he looted to fund the establishment of Silvabird TV, Cinema etc. Again can anyone remind him of his dealings with the then firs t lady which cost him his job at NTA. Those who throw stones, should always watch glasses around them.
