The former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has reacted to Festus Keyamo’s description of him as a “political prostitute and backstabber.’”
Dogara said he also has an uncomplimentary name for Keyamo.
His statement was contained in a post via his Twitter handle on Sunday.
Recall that Keyamo, a Minister of State for Labour and Employment, and spokesman for the Tinubu-Shettima Campaign Council, had in a Tweet on Sunday morning called Dogara a “political prostitute, wanderer and back-stabber.”
Keyamo was reacting to Dogara’s statement in which he referred to President Muhammadu Buhari’s endorsement of Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, at a campaign in Nasarawa State, as a mockery.
Keyamo wrote: “My brother and law schoolmate, @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 & back-stabber that you’ve always been.”
However, Dogara fired back at Keyamo: “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.”
