The Former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, and the former Secretary General of the Federation, Babachir Lawal have had an opposing views about the APC Muslim-Muslim ticket immediately it was announced by the party. The two former members of the All Progressive Congress have joined the opposition parties last week.
However, there has been agenda raised on the fact that Yakubu Dogara and Babachir Lawal are angry because they are not chosen as a Vice Presidential candidate to Asiwaju.
Yakubu Dogara has addressed the issue of not supporting the APC Muslim-Muslim ticket in a Sun Newspaper interview. He stated that Asiwaju is being deceived by the people around him and that many of the people sees the dangers of the Muslim-Muslim ticket but have chosen not to advise him.
”Were it for self interest, I would have settled for some plumb favours in APC and damn consequences; after all, which party can better serve your personal interest than the ruling party? Do you think most of the people following Tinubu today are blind? They see the danger but their belies are open Sepulchres. So they price the food they anticipate would be on the table above the National interest.”
