DOGARA DUMPS PDP, JOINS APC AGAIN

Former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has dumped the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC).


Mai Mala Buni, Yobe State Governor and Chairman of the APC Caretaker committee, disclosed this in Abuja on Friday, July 24, when he took Dogara for a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa.


“He is now a member of the APC,” Buni told journalists.


“We paid a courtesy call on the President in continuation with our efforts in rebuilding the party, we are here to see Mr President and brief him on the development.”


"Well, they (Nigerians) shouldn’t be surprised because the former Speaker is a member of the APC. He is because the reason in which he left the APC is no longer there. He is back now, Buni said.



Dogara had left the APC after he fell out with Mohammed Abubakar, former Governor of Bauchi State.

Dogara, who is a member of the opposition PDP, served as the 14th Speaker of the House of Representatives. 


The former Speaker currently represents Bogoro/Dass, Nigeria/Tafawa Balewa, Federal constituency of Bauchi State since 2007. He first dumped the PDP in 2014 and re-contested for the House of Representatives seat in 2015 on the platform of the APC.
