Governor Bala also challenged Yakubu Dogara for overpaid contracts awarded in his constituency.

Alhamdu Samson, former Speaker Dogara’a Aide who spoke to NEWISSUES magazine said that the Rtd. Hon. Dogara didn’t consult with his people before he defected to the All Progressive Congress. He complained that since Dogara was voted in the previous election, he has not visited the people of his constituency to thank them as other of his colleagues did.

“He didn’t inform us he was defecting. He took the decision on his own out of his own personal interest. Governor Bala Mohammad has been very good to our constituency, he has recognized us more than any governor since 1999 and he hasn’t done anything to us, so we would continue to support the governor.”

Mr. Alhamdu Samson also said the people of Dogara’s constituency feel shocked at his sudden defection and disappointment.
