Former Speaker of the House of Representatives Yakubu Dogara has been sacked from the House by a Federal High Court in sitting in Abuja.
Between 2015 and 2019, Mr Dogara, who represents the Bogoro/Dass Federal seat in Bauchi State, served as Speaker of the House of Representatives.
The judge, D.U. Okorowo, on Friday, ruled that Mr Dogara’s defection from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC) was wrong and meant he should vacate the legislative seat.
Mr Dogara defected to the APC after winning his re-election under the PDP in 2019.
His frosty relationship with his state governor, Bala Mohammed, was one of the main reasons he ditched the PDP which he joined less than five years ago.
