Dogara Announces Plans To Seek Re-Election

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has announced plans to seek a re-election into the National Assembly come 2019.

Dogara announced his decision yesterday while addressing his constituents at his Abuja residence.

The Speaker said he was already contemplating stepping aside, having represented the constituency for almost 12 years.

He, however, said he was overwhelmed by the show of solidarity from his supporters, noting that because of their “sacrifice”, he will once again represent them.


“I am shocked and surprised because I never thought or imagined that when I woke up today, I will see this mammoth crowd in my house.

“I am seeing faces of people we started this journey with since 2007. I pray God rewards you for this sacrifice. I was almost tired, having doing the same thing for almost 12 years now”.
