Dogara is currently a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The former speaker moved to the PDP in December 2022 after he declared support for Atiku Abubakar, the party’s presidential candidate.

He left the ruling party because of the APC’s Muslim-Muslim ticket, which he and Babachir Lawal, a former secretary of the government of the federation (SGF), vehemently opposed.
