Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Yakubu Dogara, may have dumped his party, the All Progressives Congress(APC) judging by latest reports.
The Speaker was said to have picked the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) expression of interest and nomination forms on Wednesday at the party’s national secretariat. According to the reports, the forms were picked on Dagara’s behalf by one of his trusted allies, a day after the APC closed sale of nomination forms.
Nigerians have taken to social media to react to the news. Although the National chairman of the ruling party, Adams Oshiomhole has said defections has no political hinderance to the party, many are of the view that losing Dogara and Bukola Saraki definitely has its cons.
Here are some reactions
Can someone pass this message to Edo Wizard that Dogara is now PDP.
Let him impeach him too.
Who would have thought that just three years of Buhari, power will CHANGE hands in NASS:
Senate President – PDP
Speaker of HoR – PDP

Media reports now confirming that the Speaker of the House of Reps, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara is indeed back into the PDP.
PDP now has the Leaders of both the Senate and the House of Representatives in its fold.

Saraki defects from APC to PDP.
Akpabio defects from PDP to APC.
Dogara defects from APC to PDP.
Shekarau defects from PDP to APC.
Ortom defects from APC to PDP.
Kwankwaso defects from PDP to APC.
How will the country grow/develop with this type of selfish attitude?

Saraki Dragged Dogara into his mess and left him to deal with the mess himself. Saraki is criminally smart, Although one day will be the end of the road for him, he always seem to mess people up and cut out. Be wary of all kind of Sarakis around you.
