Ex - Speaker Yakubu Dogara Returns To APC

Ex - Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has returned to his former party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Dogara defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The acting Chairman of the APC, Mai Mala Buni, confirmed the defection after he led Mr Dogara to meet President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House, Friday.

Mr Buni, who doubles  as Yobe State Governor, said President Buhari received the former speaker back to the APC. 

The governor said the conditions that prompted Mr Dogara to leave the ruling party had ceased to exist.

However, Mr Dogara shunned request for interview by reporters, saying he would speak on the issue  at a later date.

Mr Dogara had in 2018 left the APC for the PDP after having political confrontation for about two years with the former governor of Bauchi State, Mohammed Abubakar.

The former speaker recently headed a screening panel of the PDP primary for the Ondo State governorship election, prompting to wonder  why he is leaving the opposition party he joined in September 2018.

Mr Dogara on January 29, 2019, formally announced his defection from the APC to the PDP.

He had in September 2018 visited the PDP national secretariat where he submitted his nomination forms for the 2019 House of Representatives election.

It was on the PDP platform that he was re-elected to represent his Bogoro/Dass/Tafawa Balewa federal constituency of Bauchi State.
