‘Vote for APC or you are dealt with’

In December 2022, Alhassan Doguwa was heard urging party supporters to deal with anyone who would not be voting for the APC in a widely circulated video.


“To God who made me, you must vote for APC on election day, or we deal with you.


“I’ll repeat it again: either you support the APC on election day, or we deal with you.


He said, “Repeat after me, in Doguwa you either vote for APC or we deal with you,” as the audience erupted in cheers.


Doguwa claimed in an interview with Channels TV that his goal was to inspire rather than frighten supporters.

N70 million need for election

In a widely shared video, Doguwa complained that he would require N70 million in cash for the elections on February 25, 2023.

“And don’t forget the point I made as a partisan member that the policy is against the ruling party in itself because Nigerians that are not happy will look at it as a policy of the government of the APC,” he continued in an interview.


You announce a policy 30–40 days before elections that is not well received by Nigerians, and whether we like it or not, that policy will be perceived as the government’s platform. Therefore, those of us in the APC are not pleased.

Alleged assault of a journalist

Abdullahi Yakubu, a reporter for the Leadership Newspaper, filed a lawsuit against Hon Doguwa for allegedly beating him when he attended a news conference at the lawmaker’s home.


Having known Yakubu for more than 30 years, Doguwa apologized to the journalist, saying, “I am very sorry over the issue.”

Speaking up, he declared, “It was never on purpose; even Abdullahi Yakubu is aware of the kind of person I am.


Sincerely, Yakubu is the only journalist who has genuinely supported my efforts to this point.
“Even in certain cases when we co-write the story, I correct him in some of the writeups, and we would both be pleased with the outcome.


“Also, occasionally when I would come up with write-ups, he would professionally rebuke me by saying, ‘This is wrong in journalism.’

I have known Abdullahi for more than 30 years, as I mentioned previously, therefore with this, I have officially apologized to him because the word “assault” in the lawsuit against me made me uneasy.


I am a journalist, and I am conscious of human rights.

“This is due to the fact that, like troops and police, journalists work in the field. I’m quite respectful of them,” he remarked.

Killing of several persons and burning the secretariat of NNPP.


For his suspected involvement in the murder of numerous people and the burning of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) secretariat on February 25, 2023, Alhassan Ado Doguwa was detained by the police.

The federal politician was held by Magistrate Ibrahim Mansur Yola until March 7, 2023, so that the bail application could be heard.


Aisha Salisu, the prosecutor, informed the court that the offense was committed on February 26 in the Tudun Wada local government area of Kano by Doguwa and a man named Bashir Dahiru.
