The return of Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara to the Peoples Democratic Party is a courageous move, the party has said.

Dogara, a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) had last week collected the PDP nomination form with the party describing it as a call for all compatriots to rescue Nigeria.

In a statement on Sunday, the PDP said ”Dogara’s move is reflective of the wishes and aspiration of his larger constituency and in tandem with the determination of Nigerians across board to rally on the platform of the repositioned PDP to vote out the incompetent, divisive and corrupt APC administration, which has caused untold harm to our nation in the last three years.

“Dogara has continued to conduct the affairs of the House of Representatives with the highest level of commitment, resulting in a very productive legislature under his leadership, despite the unmitigated efforts by the Buhari Presidency and the APC to distract him.

“Furthermore, the return of Dogara and other leaders who had earlier left our fold is a clear testament that the issues that led to their exit in the first place have all been addressed under the repositioned and rebranded PDP.”
