The immediate past speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, is back in the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The acting Chairman of the APC and Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni. disclosed this on Friday after he accompanied Dogara to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari at the villa.
Governor Buni disclosed that the President has welcomed Mr Dogara into the fold as well as other former aggrieved members of the party.
He said the reason why Dogara left the APC do not exist anymore and this visit to President Buhari is in continuation of efforts to rebuild the party.
Part of the Yobe governor’s brief is to rebuild the party ahead of its national convention where a new executive committee will be elected.
“We are meeting all our aggrieved members, particularly those who have interest in coming back to the party,” he said.
Dogara was one of the APC’s influential members who dumped the party in July 2018, although he officially announced his own defection on January 29, 2019, citing “undemocratic practices” in the party.
