A former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, said Speaker Yakubu Dogara may face the kind of harassment by security agencies that Senate President Bukola Saraki is currently facing.
Obasanjo said in a statement that he has received credible information of a plot against the Speaker to give him the Saraki treatment.
In a statement issued by his media aide, Kehinde Akinyemi, Obasanjo said the plot against the Dogara was in spite of the kind of dedication and commitment he is giving to the APC government.
He said they aim to silence the Speaker and all dissenting voices and prevent them from speaking out against the wanton killings across the country.
“We are currently in a nation where the Number Three citizen is currently being harangued and the Number Four citizen is facing similar threat within the same Government they serve,” he said.
“There is a groundswell of our nationals that live in fear that they could be hounded, harassed, maimed or even killed as the battle for 2019 takes this worrisome dimension,” the statement added.
Dogara was mandated to lead negotiations with the team representing the presidency and the APC led by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
The National Assembly had on Tuesday held a joint closed-door session where lawmakers passed resolutions on the state of the nation.
