•Speaker Yakubu Dogara

The Speaker, House of Representatives, Hon Yakubu Dogara, Wednesday picked the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) expression of interest and nomination forms to bid for a return to the House in 2019.

A reliable source told THISDAY that the speaker, who is the number 4 in the country’s order of protocol, sent one of his trusted aides to pick the forms, a day after his party, All Progressives Congress (APC), close collection of nomination forms.

Dogara’s action signifies that he has finally dumped the ruling party for the main opposition one.
He had told journalists on Tuesday that he had agreed to re-contest the Bogoro/Dass/Tafawa Balewa federal constituency seat but failed to signify the platform he intended to use.
