Dogara On The Verge To Dump APC For PDP

He made the announcement in a tweet on Wednesday via the Sokoto Government House (@SokotoGovtHouse):

He wrote: “I have consulted widely especially with the Sokoto people and they have confidently assured me of my next political move. I hereby defect officially to the @OfficialPDPNig. Power to the People”

Before the announcement, there was a massive gathering of people outside the Governement House, even as the state government tweeted an earlier notification, “Big announcement coming from @SokotoGovtHouse. Details shortly.”

Senate President Bukola Saraki had last night dumped the ruling APC.

Saraki’s defection from the APC comes a week after Governor Samuel Ortom officially announced his resignation from Nigeria’s ruling party on Wednesday.

Ortom’s resignation also comes at a time when fifteen senators of the ruling party announced their defection to the opposition party.

In the same vein on Tuesday, a total of 37 members of the House of Representatives defected from Nigeria’s ruling party.
