Muslim-Muslim ticket: PDP appoints Dogara as member of Campaign council

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has appointed the former speaker, House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara as a member of the party’s presidential campaign council.

This is confirmed in a statement released on Sunday by Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto state, who doubles as the Director-General of PDP PCC, saying the appointment was with immediate effect.

Part of the statement read, “The leadership of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council wishes to formally announce that Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara, has been appointed as a member of the Presidential Campaign Council with immediate effect.

“This is part of our continuous effect in joining hands with our presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, to recover our great country, Nigeria.”

Dogara, who is a member of the All Progressives Congress, had expressed opposition to the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the party.

On Friday, the Northern Leaders Consultative Forum comprising Christian and Muslim religious and political leaders in the North, including Dogara, endorsed Atiku.
