The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has describe a former Speaker of the House of Representatives Yakubu Dogara, as an hypocrite and a politician with no character.
Wike berated Dogara, who returned to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Monday, for backing the presidential bid of former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar.
The Rivers governor claimed that Dogara had insisted that the Presidency should return to the South as against his most recent support for Atiku who is from the Northern region.
Speaking on Monday during the flag-off of Indorama-Agbonchia-Ogale-Ebubu East/West Link Road, Wike said Dogara’s latest action is a deviation from his earlier stance.
The governor called on the former Speaker to always stand by what he says, stressing that he does not like people without character.
He said: “What I don’t like in life is people that don’t have character. I can’t stand it. At the appropriate time, I would challenge them to a debate. Ask Dogara: what made you leave PDP?
“Dogara was to see me; unknown to me, he gave me an excuse and I was watching Dogara on TV being received by President Muhammadu Buhari that he has gone to APC. I say ‘Okay, no problem’. The same Dogara said the presidency should be zoned to southern Nigeria for there to be peace. Now, I hear about the same Dogara (backing Atiku from the north). Is that how you do things? Can’t you say something and stand by it?”
