Former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has dumped the ruling All Progressives Congress, (APC) for the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP).

This comes barely hours after Dogara and some aggrieved northern APC leaders declared support for the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, in fallout from the APC’s Muslim-Muslim ticket.

The move, he explained followed several months of political permutations as the Northern Elders Consultative Forum, including the Christian leaders in the All Progressives Congress in the North on Friday formally adopted Atiku.

Dogara was received into the party during the presidential campaign by the party’s presidential candidate and former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar in the nation’s commercial capital, Lagos State, on Monday.
