The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council has taken a swipe at Yakubu Dogara, a former speaker of the house of representatives.

 

Dogara and Babachir Lawal, a former secretary of the government of the federation (SGF), as well as some other members of the APC, on Sunday, resolved to find a presidential candidate whom they would support at the polls.

 

They are aggrieved over the party’s decision to field a Muslim-Muslim ticket at the 2023 polls.

 

Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the APC, and Kashim Shettima, his running mate, are Muslims.

 

In a statement on Monday, Bayo Onanuga, the campaign’s director of media and publicity, described Dogara as “politically unstable”.

 

Onanuga alleged that the former speaker is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

 

“The Tinubu-Shettima Presidential Campaign Council is therefore not surprised by media reports about a meeting of some so-called Northern Christian leaders, who claimed to be members of the All Progressives Congress that was championed by Dogara and his ilks,” the statement reads.

 

 “The claim was totally fraudulent.

 

“Yakubu Dogara, the peripatetic and politically unstable politician who organised the meeting left our party officially and unceremoniously weeks ago. And those who attended the meeting were representing themselves, their selfish agenda, not northern Christians.

 

“All Nigerians are aware that Atiku’s emergence as the PDP presidential candidate grossly violated a power rotation code between the north and the south. His insistence on snatching and retaining what rightly belongs to another political region has triggered a crisis within his party, making him run from Port Harcourt to London to mend fences.

 

“We want to assure Dogara and his co-travellers fanning hate campaigns against our presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and his running mate, that they will fail spectacularly at the polls.”
