Despite the fact that Yakubu Dogara and the group of lawmakers in his camp chose to walk out of the internal election process being put together by the APC national leadership, the election will still go on as planned.
This was disclosed by the APC national Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed.
The election is currently ongoing to select who the party will nominate as its candidate for Speaker of the House of Representatives.
Yakubu Dogara and his supporters claim that there were irregularities, hence their decision to storm out of the venue. The faction would hold a parallel election.
According to Lai Mohammed, the Dogara faction complained that they were not given enough notice.
“Out of 218 members, 160 are already here and minority cannot hold majority to ransom,” Mohammed said.
