A group, CUPP, has revealed why the former speaker of House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, rejoined APC…Tinubu Dogara 2023
Dogara and the governor of Yobe state, Malla Buni, had on Friday, July 24, visited President Buhari to seal the ex-speaker’s defection plan.
Watch the 2023 game plan:
The group, however, alleged that Dogara’s defection is a grand plan for Tinubu to actualise his presidential ambition in 2023.
Former speaker of House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara’s sudden defection from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Friday, July 24, took many Nigerians by surprise. But a report by Daily Independent indicates that Dogara’s defection to APC may not be unconnected to President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption war and 2023 presidential election.
the chairman of APC caretaker/convention planning committee and Governor of Yobe state, Mai Malla Buni, disclosed that Dogara had rejoined APC after they met with President Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

shortly after Dogara’s defection, a source said that his exit from the PDP is not unconnected to the activities of anti-graft agencies, probing some past and present political holders.
The source was quoted to have added that Dogara may have panicked and dumped the PDP to avoid unforeseen circumstances.
Reacting to this development, the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP), said that APC may have lured Dogara into APC, using the propaganda of northern Christian VP to Tinubu.
CUPP, in a statement by its spokesman, Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere said: “I hope they have not used the propaganda of northern Christian VP to Tinubu to lure my very good friend to the APC party that might not survive the upcoming intraparty 2023 crisis.
. We will be watching how all these play out.”
Basir Ahmad, the personal assistant on new media to the President Muhammadu Buhari, said Dogara did do anything wrong for detecting from PDP to APC. In another report, the APC described Dogara’s defection as a source of joy to the ruling party.
The party, however, noted that it was not oblivious of the fact that it would meet obstacles in its bid to achieve for fellow citizens the Nigeria of their dreams under the leadership of President Buhari.
