Dogara’s kin abandon ex-Speaker in favor of Muslim-Muslim ticket

Hundreds of Yakubu Dogara’s constituents declared their support for the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, on Thursday, saying the Muslim-Muslim ticket should not be a factor in next year’s election.

According to a PUNCH correspondent, Dogara, who represents the Dass/Tafawa Balewa/Bogoro Federal Constituency in Bauchi State, has been one of the leading voices in the country opposing the APC’s same-faith ticket.

Dogara left the APC after being dissatisfied with the party’s decision and joined the Peoples Democratic Party, where he expressed support for the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

But his kinsmen from the three local government areas of Dass, Tafawa Balewa, and Bogoro, which make up his constituency, held a rally to show their support for Tinubu; his running mate, Kashim Shettima; the governorship candidate of the APC, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar (retd.); and others candidates of the APC in the state.

The supporters, under the umbrella of “Bogoro, Dass, and Tafawa Balewa Christian Support Group for APC,” said they rallied to tell their presidential candidate and the party that they would go house-to-house to mobilise support ahead of the general elections.
