‘It’s such a pity if you cannot remember’ – Dogara slams ‘entitled’ Wike

Former speaker of the house of representatives Yakubu Dogara has slammed Nyesom Wike in response to an initial statement made by the Rivers State governor.

Wike, while reacting to news of Dogara’s defection from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and his endorsement of Atiku Abubakar for president, said Dogara cannot say something and stand by it.

“The same Dogara said the presidency should be zoned to southern Nigeria for there to be peace,” the governor had said.

“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?”

In his response, Dogara lament that Wike cannot remember what they really discussed.

“To my brother, Governor Nyesom Wike; if there is anything you are suffering from, I never thought amnesia would be one of them,” he wrote.

“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.”
