Dogara Felicitates With Nigerians On 56th Independence Anniversary


Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara, has felicitated with Nigerians on the occasion of the country’s 56th independence anniversary.

In a statement issued on Friday by his Special Adviser on Media & Public Affairs, Turaki Hassan, the Speaker said  that despite the challenges and difficulties confronting Nigerians, there is every reason for the country to celebrate its independence anniversary.

He, however, noted that the current challenges are not insurmountable because with unity of purpose, commitment, sacrifice, hard work and patriotism, we shall overcome.

Dogara, who noted that while it may seem like all is bleak and gloomy at the moment, Nigerians will soon begin to smile in appreciation when fruits of the structures being put in place by the present administration under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari  begin to manifest. He then called on all leaders, irrespective of political affiliation, to join in rebuilding the country for betterment of future generations.

Dogara said that history has shown that many nations have passed through even more tumultuous and difficult periods in their journey to greatness and nationhood but they overcame, and that “ours cannot be different and Nigeria wont be an exception so long as we remain committed to building a prosperous and strong democratic nation where opportunities abound for all.”

He said that democracy offers nothing other than  liberty and freedom for citizens to realise their God-given talents and potentials which can be harnessed into building a greater society.

“As leaders, we are ever ready to make the much needed and necessary sacrifice to help take the country out of the present recession and build a strong economy”, he said.

According to the Speaker, the House of Representatives is alive to its responsibilities and committed to passing legislation that will help take the country out of the present economic recession.
