National Coordinator, Concerned Advocates for Good Governance, CAGG, Olusegun Bamgbose, has predicted that the People’s Democratic Party Presidential Candidate in the last general elections will follow the steps of Yakubu Dogara by rejoining the All Progressives Congress.
Bamgbose, in a chat published by Daily Post, revealed that the former Lagos State Governor, Bola Tinubu was responsible for the return of Dogara to the ruling party.
He disclosed that the APC National Leader is “politically inseparable” from Atiku and will do all in his disposal to see to the latter’s return to the party.
“Bola Tinubu is certainly not prepared to be caught panting, as things unfold.
“Tinubu, as a master strategist possibly masterminded Dogara’s defection, to enable him to have a popular candidate, as his Vice, come 2023 Presidential elections.
“His greatest challenge would have been securing a Northerner who is a Christian, as a vice. Someone who will be generally acceptable to the North, and also one whose political pedigree is intimidating.
“Dogara, being the immediate past Speaker of the House of Representatives, to him will be the candidate to look out for.
“Tinubu possibly went out for him. PDP is getting weaker by the day. The surprising thing is that many PDP bigwigs have kept mute about Dogara’s defection because some of them may follow suit soon.
“I still foresee Atiku defecting back to APC. Tinubu and Atiku are two inseparable political friends. They may throw banters at each other in the public arena, but privately they are friends.
“Since Dogara’s defection, Atiku has kept mute, because he may equally have plans to move in the nearest future. It’s most likely we are heading for a one party state.
“As a Presidential aspirant, I’m not perturbed, as I have my plans to defeat Tinubu if chosen as APC Presidential candidate come 2023. He is no doubt more experienced but I’ve my strategies to defeat him,” he said.
The former Speaker of House of Representatives, Dogara, shocked political enthusiast last week by dumping PDP and returning to APC after meeting with President Buhari.
