A few days after it was reported that he has again dumped the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP to join the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara has revealed his reason for returning to the APC.
In a letter addressed to the Chairman of the PDP in Bogoro ‘C’ ward in Bogoro Local Government Area of Bauchi, Dogara said he dumped the PDP because Bauchi Governor, Bala Mohammed was repeating the mistake of the previous administration.
Dogara noted that his decision to leave the PDP became imperative because the same reasons why some of the members of the party fought hard in 2019 to effect change in the governance Bauchi state are festering now.
The former speaker reiterated that he intends to raise the issues once again as the fight to instil decent and egalitarian government Bauchi state continues.
Dogara Reveals Reason For Dumping PDP
However, he asked some questions bothering on the LGA allocations since May 2019 and the campaign promise to conduct LGA elections within six months of the PDP government.
Also, he raised a question about the N4.6 billion loan taken from a bank by the Bauchi state government.
Other questions asked by Dogara include the reason for segmenting salaries and why is the payment of salaries of state workers outsourced to a private firm as consultants.
He wondered why contracts are inflated, awarded and payment of mobilization done in violation of extant rules on procurement.
“Why are our highly revered traditional rulers and elders treated with odium contrary to the guarantee we have during the campaign that such will not happen under a PDP government?”
On his reason for not raising the questions as a PDP member, he argued that he could be charged for disloyalty to raise the issues as a PDP member.
Dogara, who represents Dass/Tafawa Balewa/Bogoro Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives added that he resigned his membership of the PDP to keep faith with his principle of fighting for good governance Bauchi state.
