‘Wike is suffering from amnesia’
By Ahmed Ahmed
The immediate past Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Yakubu Dogara, has berated the River State Governor, Nyesom Wike, acussing him of being self-centred and shallow-minded by insisting only his positions should be respected and followed.
He also said that Wike was suffering from amnesia.
The former speaker was responding via tweets – @Yakubdogara –to statements by Wike on his endorsement of the People’s Democratic Party Presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
He reminded Governor Wike of their discussions and agreement they had which he said he won’t reveal to the public because he was not a betrayer.
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?
“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,” Dogara said.
