"My brother and law school mate, @YakubDogara, this tweet is beneath you. You are actually pained by the support of PMB for @officialABAT, two leaders who have stayed true to their beliefs and causes, unlike the political prostitute, wanderer & back-stabber that you’ve always been."

Not one to back down, Dogara responded to Keyamo, saying though they were mates in law school, they are not mates in politics.

He stated:

"My brother, I have a name for you but because it’s not a good one, I won’t say it as a cost of friendship. Yes, we were mates at Law School but I am waiting for you to win a councilorship election first so we can be mates in politics. Learn to punch below your weight category."

The former speaker added that the law he studied was for a good cause.

How the war between Dogara and Keyamo started

It all started when the former speaker reacted to President Muhammadu Buhari's restatement of his support for the APC presidential candidate to be his successor.

Buhari had posted photos from the APC presidential campaign rally in Lafia, Nasarawa state. In the caption, he affirmed his endorsement of Tinubu as Nigeria's next president. He added that Tinubu will give his best.

Dogara decided to share his opinion and referred to the president's statement as a "satire". According to him, Nigerians deserve better than Tinubu's best.
