Speaker House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara is surprisingly absent from the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC), being the highest-ranking member of the party in the legislature with the defection of Senate President, Bukola Saraki to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP).
This is as the national leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu made a surprise appearance even though he is constitutionally not a statutory member of this decision -making organ of the party.
This development is coming up after some senators threatened to decamp if the party opted for Indirect Primaries.
More details coming soon…
