The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja had on 22nd April, 2022 declared vacant, the seat of Hon Yakubu Dogara as member of the House of Representatives following his defection from PDP to APC.

Reacting to the Judgment, Counsel to Hon Dogara, J.J. Usman, (SAN) explained that he has been instructed by his Client to appeal against the judgment with the immediate effect and already action has been taken to appeal the judgement.

“The judgment has just been delivered and we have briefed our client right from the Court and he has expressed dissatisfaction against the judgment and has instructed that we file an appeal immediately which we have taken action on that”.

J. J Usman stated that the decision of the Court that there is evidence of defection to APC is not substantiated by any shred of evidence in the Court’s record hence the decision to challenge the decision at the Court of Appeal.
