Yusuf who represents the Senate in the Caretaker Committee of the APC described Dogara ‘s recent return to the party as a tremendous relief given his presence, influence and being one of the founding fathers of the party.

Yusuf said: “Dogara took a wrong step in the first place. He was one of the most trusted members of our party.

“He was misguided to have left the APC at a very wrong time. We are happy that he is back to the house that he built alongside other leaders.

“He is going to be considered as one of the strong members of the party who will play a very critical role in our reconciliation efforts being a very strong member of the House of Representatives.”

On the forthcoming Edo/Ondo elections, Yusuf expressed optimism that the APC candidates in the two states would win the forthcoming governorship elections.

He said, “We are doing very well. The campaign train in Edo is going on very well. We are receiving defectors daily.

“The situation is the same in Ondo State. Those who have issues with the governor are being reached out to, just to ensure that all areas of disagreements are addressed before the election.
