The All Progressives Congress appears not to be losing sleep over the reported defection of Speaker Yakubu Dogara from its fold to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, where he came from.

On the contrary, the APC, which dismissed Dogara, as a ‘political paperweight’ said a “crushing and humiliating defeat”, awaits him in next February election in his Bogoro/Dass/Tafawa Balewa constituency.

APC acting publicity secretary, Yekini Nabena made the party’s position known in a statement Thursday, saying the party was not surprised about Dogara’s ill-advised move.

“It was only a matter of time judging by Dogara’s anti-party antics in the National Assembly wherein connivance with the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, he exploited all available avenues to sabotage and undermine the APC-led executive. Dogara’s anti-party activities which enabled one of the opposition Party’s sole victory in Bogoro Local Government Area (Dogara’s council) during the recent Bauchi South Senatorial bye-election won by the APC is another pointer, among several others”.
