Ex-Speaker Dogara decamps from APC to PDP

0 106

Yakubu Dogara, a former Speaker of the House of Representatives, has decamped from the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Dogara’s defection comes barely 48 hours after Dogara and some aggrieved northern APC leaders declared support for the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar.

The former Speaker was received into the party during the presidential campaign of Atiku in Lagos.

Recall that the Northern Elders Consultative Forum, including the Christian leaders of the APC in the North, had on Friday, formally adopted Atiku for presidency.

The APC Northern Christian leaders had said Atiku was adopted following the resolve of the leaders to work with their Muslim counterparts to adopt one of the presidential candidates in a bid to challenge the same-faith presidential ticket of the APC.

In 2020, Dogara dumped the PDP to join the APC.
