The Speaker of the National house of Representatives Yakubu Dogara has retained his seat as be won in his Constituency.
He said ”
I dedicate this victory to God first and our ever peace loving & resilient people of Bogoro/Dass/Tafawa Balewa Federal Constituency who defied all odds to return me to House for an unprecedented 4th term. By their uncommon courage, sacrifice and patience in the face of unwarranted provocation, threat & intimidation & attempts to subvert their will by undemocratic forces, they have made history today in Nigeria by breaking a jinx that has plagued the
House since 1st Assembly as no presiding officer (both Speaker & Deputy Speaker)
has ever been re-elected to the House. Bogoro/Dass/Tafawa Balewa has also set a record as the first in Bauchi state to return a member to House for fourth consecutive term.
Thanks to many friends and supporters who contributed immensely in making this history possible. Together we shall continue to defy evil and make Nigeria work again.
These are the word of Hon. Dogara as he emerged victorious in Polls in Bauchi.
