You’re a ‘prostitute’ – war of words between former classmates, Festus Keyamo and Yakubu Dogara
The spokesperson for the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo, has described the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, as a ‘political prostitute’.
Keyamo made the statement on Sunday in a post via his verified Twitter handle.
The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, keyamo, was reacting to a post earlier made by Dogara on his Twitter handle.
Dogara had referred to President Muhammadu Buhari’s endorsement of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, at a campaign 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.
However, Keyamo took to his Twitter handle calling out Dogara 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.”
Meanwhile, former speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has challenged Festus Keyamo to win a councilorship election first because both of them are not “mates” in politics.
“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,” Mr Dogara said to Mr Keyamo in a tweet on Sunday.
“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,” he added.
Keyamo is the minister of state for Labour and spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council.
Dogara was responding to a tweet in which Keyamo called him a “political prostitute”, a “wanderer”, and a “back-stabber” for attacking the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, after President Muhammadu Buhari appealed to Nigerians to vote Tinubu that he would give his best to the country.
The former speaker is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party and a powerful supporter of the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
