A former speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has slammed the Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, criticising his support for the 2023 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar.

In a series of tweets made on his personal account, Dogara denied being a betrayer following Wike's allegation that he betrayed the south.

Wike in his attack against the former speaker said that Dogara lacked integrity for backing Atiku after he had insisted that the 2023 presidency goes to the south.

However, in responding to Wike's attack, Dogara said Wike is suffering from amnesia for thinking that he has the sole right to a certain set of principles.

His words:

“To my brother, Governor Nyesom Wike; if there is anything you are suffering from, I never thought amnesia would be one of them. Why would you think no one, except you, is entitled to a certain set of principles he/she cannot compromise?"

Tweeting further, the former speaker said it appears Wike has forgotten their discussions and agreement on the political plans.

He added that he would go further to expose their conversation to the public if care is not taken.

“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 is 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!”

Finally, Peter Obi reacts to Dogara's declaration of support for Atiku, PDP

The ObiDatti campaign group described the former speaker, Yakubu Dogara's support for Atiku Abubakar as old testament politics.

The organisation warned that the former speaker's effort to inject his old political tricks into the system to suit his selfish interest is not going to do him any good.

According to the ObiDatti team, history will certainly place Dogara as a leader who turned his back on his people when they managed their best to rise up against injustice and oppression.

Governor Wike makes surprising move, apologises to 2 APC bigwigs ahead of 2023 election

The governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike, tendered an apology to two top leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC), David Umahi and Adams Oshiomhole.

Speaking in Port Harcourt on Saturday, December 3, at the Rivers state award where several notable Nigerians were honoured, Wike said he fought the two APC chieftains in the past.

He also noted that he was sure his actions against Umahi, the governor of Ebonyi state, did not give him the rest of mind he deserved.
