Olusegun Bamgbose, National Coordinator, Concerned Advocates for Good Governance, CAGG, has claimed that the sudden return to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, by former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, was masterminded by Bola Tinubu.

This was according to a statement he made on Tuesday adding that Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the peoples Democratic party, PDP may follow suit as the country may be headed for a one party state.

“Bola Tinubu is certainly not prepared to be caught panting, as things unfold,” he said.

“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.”


  1. Only time will tell if you are saying the truth. Defection or no defection, all the politicians are just enrich their pockets. We the masses are the one to ought to know what we are doing.

  2. Dogara is a political prostitute. He has his eyes on the governoship position of his state Bauch, and seeing that the incumbent governor will surely go for second tenure and may not give him the chance to run under the governors party PDP he defects.
