Chief Rotimi Amaechi, the ex-governor of Rivers state, recently turned 52.
In honor of the ex-governor who now serves as minister in the present government, a birthday symposium was held.
The event was highly glamorous, however, there is a photo making the rounds all over social media.
In the said photo, the transport minister was spotted dozing off while the lecture was going on.
Below is the photo Nigerians cannot stop talking about.
Asides the viral photo, reports have it that while Amaechi was speaking at the event held in Port Harcourt, on Friday night, Channels Television placed a disclaimer dissociating themselves from the the ex-governor's views.
NAIJ.com gathered that the minister was talking about Governor Wike, and what he was saying was apparently so offensive that the TV station eventually yanked him off their network.
Similarly, the minister of transportation, has vowed to stop the 2019 governorship ambition of Senator Magnus Abe, lawmaker representing Rivers South East in the National Assembly.
According to him, nobody could convince him to back his former political ally and godson, The Guardian reports.
The battle of wits between Amaechi and Senator Magnus Abe has continued to hug headlines in the media.
Amaechi had, during a stakeholders meeting held in Port Harcourt, said he has foreclosed Abe’s governorship ambition as far as the Rivers APC was concerned.
The minister vowed that as long as he remains the leader of the APC in Rivers state, Abe could not be the governorship candidate.
He also threatened to suspend any party leader supporting Abe’s candidature adding that he is the only one that could determine who gets the party’s ticket in 2019.

Earlier, NAIJ.com gathered that Amaechi sacked loyalists of Senator Abe in the party recently to exert his influence on the state chapter of the party.
As part of effort to frustrate Abe’s ambition, the former governor suspended Worgu Boms, former attorney general and commissioner for Justice, as the leader of the APC caucus in Port Harcourt Council (PHALGA).
The minister had since announced former Port Harcourt City Council chairman and one-time local government commission chairman, Nnamdi Wokekoro, as Boms replacement.
Amaechi also announced the suspension of Chief Tony Okocha, Obio/Akpor Council APC caucus leader and his former Chief of Staff, Government House.
These moves are perceived as Amaechi’s strategy to reduce Abe’s rising profile after he won the senatorial rerun election last year.
