Former House of Representatives Speaker Yakubu Dogara has refuted claims that he’s back in the All Progressives Congress, APC.

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, chieftain on Monday responded to an enquiry by DAILY POST.

“It’s complicated. I am supporting candidates not parties,” Dogara replied.

Dogara is being courted by politicians because he played a major role in the PDP’s defeat of the APC in the 2015 gubernatorial poll.
