My People Will Vote For Me –Dogara




Speaker, House of Representatives, Honorable Yakubu Dogara, on Thursday, said he was asked to beg for the ticket of the All  Progressives Congress.

According to an online report, Dogara stated this when he hosted some of his supporters at his Abuja residence on Thursday.

There were reports on Thursday that the Speaker had joined the Peoples Democratic Party and obtained the party’s nomination form for the House of Representatives’ primaries.

According to the online report, Dogara said his supporters had presented the 2019 forms of the PDP to him and urged him to pull out of the ruling party.

He stated that his people would vote for him even if he contested on the platform of a zero party.
Dogara said, “Truly, I have decided that I will not contest election again. They said they would give me a ticket in the APC but that I must go and beg for it. I said I did not need the ticket. In politics, I have never gone to anybody’s house to beg for a ticket.

“My ticket is my people. I have assured them that even if I run under a zero party, my people will vote for me. So long as it is Bogoro/Dass/Tafawa Balewa (constituency), even if we run under zero party; we will win by God’s grace. We have thrived well in many political battles in the past and this one too, we shall overcome it. Nobody can threaten us or tell us that we cannot contest the election in a political party we spent our resources to establish; only God can stop us.
