Festus Keyamo Reacts To Yakubu Dogara’s Endorsement Of Abubakar Atiku Ahead Of Presidential Election

In a report on Cable News, a group known as the The Northern Leaders Consultative Forum recently endorsed the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar. The endorsement reportedly took place on Friday, 2nd of December 2022 at a media conference in Abuja.

Interestingly, former speaker of the house of representatives, Yakubu Dogara is said to be a member of the group.

It would be recalled that Yakubu Dogara had initially supported the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, until the politician picked Kashim Shettima, a fellow Muslim, as his running mate.

While reacting to the development, the spokespersons of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo said that Yakubu Dogara’s endorsement of Atiku is nothing other than a drama. He said that the politician was from PDP and has gone back to the PDP.

Festus Keyamo further said that Dogara was not with them in 2019 during the second term bid of President Muhammadu Buhari and that they won. He said that nothing has changed regardless.

In his words, Festus Keyamo said;

“My very good and amiable friend and classmate Yakubu Dogara should have spared us all the drama. From PDP and back to PDP. Nothing has changed; no alteration of political permutations. They were not with us in 2019 when we won. Wishing them all the best, except victory in 2023.”
