Speaker of the House of Representatives and former member of the All Progressive Congress, Yakubu Dogara has finally defected from the All Progress Congress to the Peoples Democratic Party.

As reported, the speaker on Wednesday night picked the PDP nomination and expression forms to return to the House in 2019.

A member of the National Working Committee of the party, who spoke with our correspondent on condition of anonymity, said that the speaker had picked the forms.

“Yes, he had picked our forms, but don’t quote me, he has joined us,” the source said last night.

However, after receiving the news of his defection, the All Progressives Congress said on Thursday that it was not disturbed by the effective defection of Speaker Yakubu Dogara to the Peoples Democratic Party, saying the top lawmaker has no political value to be considered a loss.

Mr Nabena said the APC would not expend much energy on Mr Dogara because it might not be worth it.

“He is not a loss to us. Even if we give him the ticket he would lose on the ground. He is not even on the ground in the first place,” Mr Nabena said. “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,” the spokesperson emphasised.
