The speaker said he was already considering stepping aside, having represented the constituency for three terms.

Dogara, who stated this when some of his supporters paid him a solidarity visit in Abuja, was, however, silent on whether he would contest the election on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) or the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

The speaker said he was overwhelmed by the show of support by his constituents, who travelled from their respective local government areas, in Bauchi, to appeal to him to continue to represent them in the Green Chamber beyond 2019.
