Oshiomole Already Reportedly Planning Dogara’s Removal As House Of Reps Speaker

Published

APC Divided In Plans To Remove Dogara

Adams Oshiomhole, national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), wants Yakubu Dogara removed as speaker of the house of representatives.

Naija News understands that Oshiomhole met with party members, particularly lawmakers in the lower legislative chamber, in a bid to remove Dogara.

According to the report gathered, the APC chairman intensified efforts to oust the speaker after news broke that Dogara might be defecting to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Naija News recalls some members of Dogara’s constituency presented PDP nomination form to him on Thursday and urged him to leave the APC.

Dogara however, in his response, said consultations were still on-going regarding his political future.

Another source told TheCable that the party appears divided over the move to remove the speaker.

“Ever since the news of Dogara’s defection, Adams Oshiomhole has been meeting with representatives and top APC chieftains to see how they can impeach Dogara,” the source said.

“But they are at an impasse now, because some of them are saying that there will be chaos if they attempt to impeach Saraki at the same time. “We don’t know what their final decision will be but they are not agreeing, and the party chairman seems to be the one who wants them gone, but the lawmakers believe that they do not have the required numbers to pull off such a feat.”

Reacting to reports of Dogara’s planned exit on Thursday, Yekini Nabena, acting spokesman of the APC, said the speaker’s political future is bleak.

Simon Egbebulem, spokesman of Oshiomhole, neither answered calls nor replied a text message sent to him on the allegation.
