Muslim-Muslim Ticket: You Are Pained About Losing VP Slot To Shettima - APC Knocks Dogara

Former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara has come out to disclose that he is not with any political party for now.

According to him, for now he neither belongs to the All Progressives Congress (APC) nor to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) or any party for now.

Dogara, who boycotted the APC after its presidential primary because of the party’s Muslim-Muslim ticket, submitted that what he is only doing now is supporting candidates across party lines for elective positions in the 2023 general elections.

Naija News gathered that the lawmaker made his position known when he was featured on Channels Television’s Politics Today programme on Wednesday.

The former speaker who evidently went public to endorse the flag bearer of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar against APC’s Bola Tinubu for the 2023 presidential election, explained that the fact that he supports candidates of different parties for various elective seats does not mean he is an “unstable character” as rumoured.

He pointed out that he is not politically unstable, noting that he can’t abandon candidates he has helped secure elective positions for stability.

Dogara stated that “I am supporting candidates; I am not doing any political party for now, I am supporting candidates.

“Everybody knows that I backed Atiku Abubakar for Presidency for reasons I told the whole world but in Bauchi State, before primaries were concluded, I had supported the aspiration Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar who is the current APC governorship candidate and I have my candidates for House of Assembly in my constituency.

“I have Senatorial and House of Representatives candidates that I helped midwife them into those positions, and I can’t abandon them for political stability.”
