Nigeria’s former Speaker of House of Representatives, and the member representing Bogoro, Dass, Tafawa Balewa, Federal Constituency. Bauchi State, Mr Yakubu Dogara, has said that he withdrew from the All Progressives Congress (APC)  national deputy chairmanship race to support Sen. Abubakar Kyari.

Dogara, the former member of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), stated this in the letter he wrote to APC National Convention Election Subcommittee National Secretariat

Abuja made available to journalists in Bauchi.

He disclosed that he called on his  teeming supporters before taking the decision.

“I wish to communicate my decision to withdraw from the race for the position of National Deputy Chairman (North) of our great party.

“It was thought that my emergence will no doubt strengthen our party’s position especially in Bauchi State in the North East where the party couldn’t hold on to two states after just four years.

“Indeed across all the states because of the extensive network and reach to serving and former members of the National Assembly. But it turned out that our respected party readers have better ideas,” Dogara said.

He said that they micro-zoned the position to Borno State whose stakeholders under the leadership of amiable revolutionary leader, HE B Zullum and Sen Kassim Shetima have endorsed a brother and a long standing supporter/ally, Sen Abubakar Kyari for the position.
