The former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has explained his reasons for defecting from the opposition Peoples Democratic Party to the ruling All Progressives Congress.

In a letter of resignation addressed to the Bogoro ‘C’ Ward Chairman of the PDP, DOGARA cited a breakdown of governance in his state, Bauchi under the administration of Governor Bala Mohammed whom he said he helped install as a governor in 2019.


The former speaker said he cannot successfully ask questions about those issues without being accused of disloyalty if he were to remain in the PDP.


Dogara argued that if he abandons this responsibility of telling the truth to power in Bauchi State, having done same under the administrations of former Governors Isa Yuguda and Mohammed Abubakar, he will be the most irresponsible and unprincipled politician in Bauchi State.


His defection to the APC was made public after his meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari and the Chairman of the APC’s Caretaker Committee, Mala Buni at the presidential villa.
