The spokesperson for the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council (APC PCC), Festus Keyamo, has described the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, as a “political prostitute.”
Keyamo stated this in a post on his verified Twitter handle, on Sunday.
The Minister of State for Labour and Employment was reacting to an earlier comment made by Dogara on his Twitter handle.
While quoting President Muhammadu Buhari’s tweet, Dogara had described the endorsement of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, by Buhari at a campaign really in Nasarawa State as a satire
“I know that PMB loves to crack jokes but I didn’t know he would escalate it to the level of satire. Asiwaju’ll 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,” Dogara said in his tweet.
But Keyamo took to his Twitter handle to call out Dogara, describing the former Speaker as a wanderer and back-stabber.
He wrote: “My brother and law school mate, @YakubDogara, this tweet is beneath you. You are actually pained by the support of PMB for @officialABAT, two leaders who have stayed true to their beliefs and causes, unlike the political prostitute, wanderer and back-stabber that you’ve always been.”
Responding, Dogara said though they were mates in law school, they are not mates in politics.
The former Speaker asked Keyamo to win a councilorship election first so they could be mates in politics.
“In spite of what we now know and what you have said before about your candidate, we haven’t rushed to the courts, yet you feel so entitled to call us names! My good friend, the law I studied was to save me from the morass of propaganda by gaslighters-in-chief and their ilks.
“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 councilorship election first so we can be mates in politics.
“Learn to punch below your weight category,” Dograra said.
