Member representing Bogoro/Dass/ Tafawa Balewa Federal Constituency of Bauchi State, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, has said he resigned membership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to rejoin the All Progressives Congress (APC), because of the party’s poor performance in his home state of Bauchi.
Dogara, a former Speaker of the House of Representatives disclosed this in a letter of resignation addressed to the Bogoro ‘C’ Ward chairman of the PDP.
In the letter, he accused the governor of Bauchi state, Sen. Bala Mohammed, whom he helped into power, of not living up to expectations.
His letter reads, “I write to intimate you of my decision to resign my membership of the Peoples Democratic Party. This became necessary because the same reasons why we fought hard in 2019 to effect changes in the governance of our dear state are festering now.
“I intend to bring these issues to the front burner once again as the fight to install a decent and egalitarian government in our dear state continues.
“I cannot raise these issues and many more questions without a charge of disloyalty levelled against me if I were to remain a member of the PDP. I cannot also fail to raise these questions now having raised similar ones during the administrations of governors Isa Yuguda and Mohammed A. Abubakar. If I abdicate this responsibility on the altar of partisan loyalty, I will be the most irresponsible and unprincipled politician in Bauchi State.
“Thus, by this letter, I have resigned my membership of the PDP to enable me keep faith with my principle of fighting for good governance in our dear state.”
