Keyamo, Dogara At War

All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council spokesperson, Festus Keyamo (SAN) and former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara are fighting over the endorsement of Bola Tinubu by President Muhammadu Buhari.

It all started after the president on his Twitter page wrote:

“Today in Lafia, Nasarawa State, I delivered my message: vote Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the next President of Nigeria and vote Governor Abdullahi Sule for a second term. I have known Asiwaju for more than 20 years; he is a committed Nigerian; he will give his best to Nigeria.”

Dogara, reacting to Buhari’s comment said:

“I know that PMB loves to crack jokes but I didn’t know he will escalate it to the level of satire. Asiwaju will 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.”

However, Keyamo in his response lambasted Dogara.

He said: “My brother and law schoolmate, Yakubu Dogara, this tweet is beneath you. You are pained by the support of President Buhari for Bola Tinubu, two leaders who have stayed true to their beliefs and causes, unlike the political prostitute, wanderer and back-stabber that you’ve always been.”

Dogara, firing back at Keyamo said:

“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 councillorship election first so we can be mates in politics. Learn to punch below your weight category.”

Keyamo also fired back and said:

“My brother, it is sad you think every one must be rated by elections won and lost. You’ve just insulted millions of Nigerians in their various fields of endeavour. Let me remind you that I’ve reached the height of our profession and you must learn to respect your senior at the bar.”
