Dogara slams Wike, says he’s not a betrayer


Former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, says Rivers state Governor Nyesom Wike is suffering from amnesia.

The former speaker while responding to statements by Wike over his endorsement of People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Presidential candidate Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, reminded Governor Wike of their discussions and agreement they had which he said he won’t reveal to the public because he is not a betrayer.

He slammed Wike for being self-centered and shallow minded by insisting only his positions should be respected and followed.

He said: “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.

“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.”
