The former speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara has aimed a dig at the spokesperson of the Bola Tinubu presidential campaign council (PCC) Festus Keyamo (SAN).
Both men were involved in a war of words on social media when Dogora described Buhari's comment endorsing Tinubu as the right man to succeed him as a satire and not a statement from the heart.
Dogara's tweet reads:
"I know that PMB loves to crack jokes but I didn’t know he will escalate it to the level of satire. Asiwaju ll give his best to Nigeria, really? Fake certificates, fake parentage, golden triangle escapades, racketeering. No PMB, Nigeria does not deserve his best but we get the satire."

In response to Dogara's tweet, Keyamo described the former Speaker as a political harlot who lacks integrity by jumping from one party to another. He also accused the lawmaker of being a back-stabber.
Keyamo's tweet reads:
"My brother and law schoolmate, @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."
In a swift response to Keyamo's tweet, Dogara described Keyamo as a political toddler who should try and win a councillorship election before talking to him.
His tweet reads:
"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."
