former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has dumped the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and returned to the main opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The former lawmaker defected a few days after endorsing the PDP flagbearer, Atiku Abubakar.
Dogara was received into the party during the presidential campaign on Monday in Lagos State.
Recall that in 2020, Dogara dumped the PDP to join the APC.
Dogara was appointed as a member of the PPD Campaign Council on Sunday.
In a statement on Sunday, Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State, who also doubles as the Director-General of the PDP PCO, said the appointment was with immediate effect.
Part of the statement read, “The leadership of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council wishes to formally announce that Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara, has been appointed as a member of the Presidential Campaign Council with immediate effect.
“This is part of our continuous effect in joining hands with our presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, to recover our great country, Nigeria.”
