Dogara ‘Picks’ PDP Nomination Form



The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt Hon Yakubu Dogara, yesterday picked a nomination form under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), reports have said.
But sources close to Dogara have debunked claims that he has picked up a PDP nomination form.
In a telephone conversation with LEADERSHIP, an aide of the Speaker stated that Dogara is yet to pick a nomination form from PDP or any other party, adding that he has only declared his intention to run for another term.
“I am not aware of this development. I can only tell you that the Speaker only confirmed his intention to run again after his constituents impressed on him to do so.
“He also informed them that he would go over to his constituency to officially declare. So, I don’t know where this is coming from,” the source said .
However, an official of the PDP revealed last night that plans have, indeed, been made for Dogara to pick up a PDP nomination form.
