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.

Legit.ng reported that 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.

The newspaper noted that 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.

“PDP governor of Bauchi treated Dogara bad and side­lined him despite the game-changer vote from Dogaras Tafa Balewa federal constitu­ency but joining the fractured APC with a weak leader, who is already losing respect among his party men may hang his political survival in the balance. We will be watch­ing how all these play out.”

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that Basir Ahmad, the personal assistant on new media to the President Muhammadu Buhari, said Dogara did 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.
