Former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has reacted to speculations that he defected back to the All Progressives Congress (APC), in order to contest the 2023 Presidential Election as Senator Bola Tinubu’s running mate.

In a statement by his media aide Turaki Hassan on Sunday, August 23, Dogara said that his defection to the APC  was not about his political ambition.

While stating that the reports claiming such were false and being peddled by the Bauchi State Government,  he added that 2023 is still years away.

Dogara however said that he was concerned about how to help “rebuild and reposition the APC in Bauchi state.”

He said: “It has come to our notice that stories and images are being circulated on social media to the effect that His Excellency, Rt. Hon Yakubu Dogara is running for the office of the Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, with the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, (APC), Sen Bola Ahmed Tinubu, for President in 2023.

“Our initial decision was to ignore them since they are utterly baseless but it appears that the promoters of this fallacy are unrelenting in spreading the falsehood and have now succeeded in making it sound believable to the extent that even some conventional and ‘credible’ media platforms are beginning to take it up,” Dogara said.

Recall that the former speaker decamped from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the ruling party APC on Friday, July 24.
