The Coalition for Peace and Progress, a political group, says Yakubu Dogara, former speaker of the house of representatives, is the most suitable person to be the running mate of Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The group said Dogara has the required qualities and political experience to join the ticket, adding that he would promote unity and togetherness in the country.

Muhammad Chindo, the coalition’s national coordinator, spoke on Saturday during a press conference in Kaduna.

“Above all, it is imperative that the future vice-president must be a Christian who could transcend primordial sentiments bordering on religion and the twin evils of tribalism and sectionalism in the country, which Dogara is most appropriate,” he said.


“After a thorough, painstaking search and our avowed commitment and dedication to the noble cause of ensuring a united Nigeria, we unanimously conclude the most suitable to hold the position of the vice-president under the APC is Yakubu Dogara.

Chindo said Dogara is a humble and trustworthy individual who would give the required support and encouragement to the president.

“It is on record that Dogara has always been a reliable fellow in his dealings with others, especially on matters of state and national interests,” he said.


“Throughout his tenure at the national assembly, it was such noble qualities he exhibited that made him to be legendary and unique for all time to come.

“Dogara is a grassroots politician who was tested and trusted by the people of his constituency, who had the honour and privilege to be elected four
consecutive terms.”

Chindo said the former speaker’s “large-heartedness and kind nature” are qualities that would make him the ideal running mate to the party’s flag-bearer.

Kabiru Faskari, a chieftain of the APC, had on June 17 said Kabir Masari was Tinubu’s running mate, but stakeholders in the party had said the nomination was in a placeholder capacity.
