Abuja (Sundiata Post) – Embattled Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has officially dumped the ruling All Progressives’ Congress (APC) for the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
The Speaker was at the PDP’s national secratariat in Abuja on Thursday, September 20, 2018 to submit his expression of interest and nomination forms to seek re-election in the 2019 general elections on the platform of the party.
He follows in the footsteps of Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and around 50 other lawmakers in both the upper and lower legislative chambers who dumped the APC in July and August 2018. Many of them joined the PDP.
With his formal defection, the leaders of the red and green chambers are now of opposition Peoples Democratic Party’s extraction.
