The All Progressives Congress (APC) is not happy with Speaker of the House of Representatives Yakubu Dogara.
Dogara has reportedly purchased a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) nomination form. Reports say he would submit it to the PDP today and announce his defection from the APC to PDP this week.
“He is not a loss to us,” APC spokesperson Yakubu Nabena told Premium Times while reacting to the news.
“Even if we give him the ticket he would lose on ground. He is not even on ground in the first place. Those kinds of people we call them Abuja politicians.”
“He is not a problem as far as I am concerned. Yakubu Dogara has no electoral value in the APC,” Nabena said.
Following waves of defection from the APC, President Muhammadu Buhari had said those leaving the ruling party were “weak” and “corrupt”.
