Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Yakubu Dogara has distanced self from the recent reports that went viral on the social media, accusing the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki for engineering the feud between the National Assembly and the Executives.

This was contained in a statement issued to the press on Saturday and signed by his image-maker, Turaki Hassan.

The statement remarked that “Please beware of evil people, merchants of lies, falsehood and mendacity whose primary occupation is to concoct, contrive, fabricate and brew mischief and fake news which they spread and broadcast like wildfire on social media.

“These paid minions who have sold their conscience and souls to the devil for a morsel have been broadcasting lies on social media especially WhatsApp with the sole aim of deceiving and hoodwinking the public into believing that there is a rift between the two leaders of the National Assembly, Dr Abubakar Bukola Saraki and His Excellency Rt Hon. Yakubu Dogara.

“To the contrary, Dr Saraki and Barrister Dogara have enjoyed a harmonious working relationship in the last three years.

“The Rt. Hon. Speaker will never ever say those things about the President of the Senate, the statement maintained.

“But for the unsuspecting members of the public and supporters of the two leaders, we would have ignored this latest round of fallacious and fictitious perfidy which is nothing but a piece of devilish fiction as it will fizzle out and end in the pit of hell where it came from, it concluded.

It will be recalled that in recent times reports have dominated the social media in which the Speaker Dogara was said to have accused the Senate President, Bukola Saraki as power drunk and who was the architect of the recent feud between the executives and the lawmakers.
