A tweet by Speaker, House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, seems to have pit him against his numerous social media followers.
Dogara had tweeted:

But his social media followers seem to be angry at what appears to be a denial of Nigerian politicians’ contributions to the state of the nation. Consequently, the Speaker’s followers took him to task through their sometimes unkind responses.
See the responses, as tweeted back at the lawmaker:
The robbery attack against Nigerians by NASS is worst that AK47 Rifles
You only cry out when you’re scared by police but the common man are meaningless
Bunch of Looooooooooters and criminaaaaaals without good political ideology and futuristic agenda

By who exactly? Because you are part of government and you have a fair share of the blame. Don’t come to us when your interest is at stake which is always the case.

All these sermon coming when your interest is at stake, your job is to make laws and provide oversight on their implementation but you will rather award yourselves bogus salaries and unreasonable allowances and then seek public pity when your fellow rogues come for your heads.

You couldn’t have been more correct, Hon. Dogara! In other words, Nigerian youths should rise and take what rightfully belongs to them!

What have you done in the senate since you have been there? You all sit and frustrate Buhari’s fight to save the country. We know who the true enemies of this country are. You and your lots in the house. Nigerians can’t be fooled.
