PDP Appoints Dogara As Campaign Council Member
Former speaker of the house of representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has been appointed a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential campaign council (PCC).
The director general of the PDP PCC, Aminu Tambuwal, announced Dogara’s appointment in a statement on Sunday.
Dogara’s appointment comes two days after he declared support for Atiku Abubakar, PDP’s standard bearer.
The Northern Leaders Consultative Forum, which Dogara is a part of, had endorsed Atiku and termed him “the best.”
It is not clear if the former speaker has renounced his membership in the All Progressives Congress (APC).
As a member of the APC, the former speaker of the house of representatives, who is one of the party’s leaders of the Christian faith, kicked against the Muslim-Muslim ticket adopted by the party.
