Former speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara has fired back at Nyesom Wike, Governor of Rivers saying he is “suffering from amnesia”.
Gatekeepers News reports that Wike had criticized Dogara for not being a man of his word after Dogara endorsed Atiku Abubakar, Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
In a series of tweets on Monday, the Former Speaker expressed disappointment about Wike’s criticisms, saying Wike did not recall their conversation correctly.
“To my brother, Governor Nyesom Wike; if there is anything you are suffering from, I never thought amnesia would be one of them,” he wrote.
“Why would you think no one, except you, is entitled to a certain set of principles he/she cannot compromise?”
“It’s such a pity if you cannot remember what our discussion and agreement was all about. Why should only your own position be respected and followed?”
“I would never betray a friend and a brother, that is why I won’t respond to your tirade on live TV.”
“The details of our conversation are sealed up with me but if you feel it’s okay to throw it to the public kindly give me a written consent to divulge it so that the public can judge who is saying the truth. Thank God there was a witness.”
