Atiku: Dogara slams Wike, says Rivers Gov suffering from amnesia
Yakubu Dogara, the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, has compared Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, to a person with amnesia.
When Dogara announced his support for Atiku Abubakar, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Wike referred to him as an erratic person who cannot hold to his position.
Wike recalled Dogara’s alleged earlier stance that the next president should be from the South, wondering why the former Speaker failed to adhere to that position.
However, Dogara, who has since defected from the All Progressives Congress for the PDP, in response to a message on his Twitter account, stated:
“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? 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.”
