Nigerians React As Yakubu Dogara Dumps PDP, Returns To APC




A storm of reactions by Nigerians has greeted the decision of Yakubu Dogara to dump the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC), Nigeria’s ruling party.

Naija News had reported earlier that Dogara, a former Speaker of the House of Representatives, dumped the opposition PDP and joined the ruling APC.

The Chairman of the APC Caretaker/Convention Planning Committee and Governor of Kebbi State, Mai Malla Buni, disclosed this after the duo met with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Although the former speaker declined to speak to State House Correspondents after the meeting, Mai Buni told journalists that Dogara “is now a member of APC”, twenty months after he defected to the PDP from the APC shortly before the 2019 general elections.

Meanwhile, Nigerians have taken to the micro-blogging site, Twitter to react to Dogara’s decision to rejoin his former political party.
