A former speaker of the house of representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has accused Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state of suffering from amnesia.
Recall that Wike had called out Dogara for declaring support for Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
Wike said, “The same Dogara said the presidency should be zoned to southern Nigeria for there to be peace.
“Now, I hear about the same Dogara (backing Atiku from the north). Is that how you do things? Can’t you say something and stand by it?”
Responding, Dogara in a series of tweets on his Twitter handle on Monday expressed sadness that the Rivers State governor did not correctly recall their conversation.
He tweeted, “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 are 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.”
