Ex-Speaker Yakubu Dogara Dumps APC For PDP

A former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, on Monday dumped the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, his former party.

Dogara and some aggrieved northern APC leaders had declared support for the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar.

His decision followed several months of political permutations as the Northern Elders Consultative Forum, including the Christian leaders in the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the North, on Friday, formally adopted the PDP’s Atiku.

According to them, Atiku was adopted following the resolution of the Northern Christian leaders to work with their Muslim counterparts to adopt one of the presidential candidates in a bid to defeat the same-faith presidential ticket of the APC, the Punch reports.

Dogara was received into the party during the presidential campaign by the party’s presidential candidate and former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar in Lagos.
