The All Progressives Congress, APC, Chairmen of Bogoro, Tafawa Balewa and Dass local governments areas of Bauchi State have slammed the Speaker of the House of Representative, Yakubu Dogara for his alleged involvement in the plot to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari.
Haruna Rikaya, Wakili Amadi and Zubairu Musa who addressed a joint Press Conference at the NUJ Secretariat, Bauchi, said the Speaker’s act was selfish and not in the interest of the constituents whom he represents.
According to them, Dogara had since the last election been at loggers head with the State Governor Mohammed Abubakar even as the party intensifies efforts to reconcile them.
“The Speaker is now indulging in an action capable of not only destabilizing the party but overheating the polity
“Aside the alleged plot to impeach the President, the APC chieftains expressed dismay over Dogara’s failure to show up at the recent wards, local governments and States Congresses conducted by the party in the State ‘without any excuses
“If Buhari could go to Daura to witness the conduct of his ward’s Congress despite his busy schedules, why can’t the speaker come to Bogoro, his local government of origin? Queried Bogoro APC Chairman Haruna Rikaya,” they said.
