Temitope Owotoki, Abuja
Yakubu Dogara, the speaker
of the House of Representatives, has formerly announced his shifting from All Progressives
Congress, APC, to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
He disclosed this yesterday during a briefing, alongside, Edward Pwajok and Ahmed Yerima, two other legislators
In September 2018, Dogara laid to rest suspicions of his shifting from APC to PDP as he visited the national secretariat of his new party in Abuja, where he submitted his forms for the House of Representatives election.
Hundreds of supporters from his Bogoro/Dass/Tafawa Balewa federal constituency of Bauchi State presented him a PDP nomination and expression of interest forms, coaxing him to leave the ruling APC.
Unlike other members of the National Assembly, who made public their shifting, Dogara kept his decision restrained till the last plenary before the 2019 general election.
He has submitted the 2019 expression of interest and nomination forms.
