A former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has explained why he returned to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Dogara, who returned to APC from PDP on Friday, in a letter of resignation addressed to Bogoro ‘C’ Ward chairman of the PDP, Bauchi, dated July 24, 2020, alluded to failure or breakdown of governance in his native state of Bauchi under the administration of Governor Bala Mohammed.
He said he could not successfully ask questions about those issues without being accused of disloyalty if he were to remain in the PDP.
He argued that if he abdicated the responsibility of telling the truth to power in Bauchi State, having done same under the administrations of former governors Isa Yuguda and Mohammed Abubakar he would be the most irresponsible and unprincipled politician in the state. The letter reads: “I write to intimate you of my decision to resign my membership of the PDP.
This became necessary because the same reasons why we fought hard in 2019 to effect changes in the governance of our dear state are festering now. “I intend to bring these issues to the front burner once again as the fight to install decent and egalitarian government in our dear state continues.” (DailyTrust)
