Economic hardship: Don’t set Nigeria on fire - Dogara urges politicians

Former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has urged Nigerians, particularly those holding political offices, not to set the country on fire in spite of the current challenges facing the people.

Dogara made this charge during the burial program of his late mother, Mama Saratu Yakubu Tukur held in his country home, Gwarangah, Bogoro LGA of Bauchi State on Saturday.

According to him, “We have no any other country to run to if we set Nigeria on fire. It is true there is anger across the country because of hunger, but we must tread with caution.”

The former Speaker stressed that the situation is affecting everybody irrespective of ethno-religious differences and so, the situation is not beyond redemption

“The problem is not one man’s problem, it is beyond one man, we must all join hands to solve the problem, each one of us has a role to play.

“If we set the country on fire, we will not be able to do anything, we will not even be here in this church for the burial program. I am appealing for caution in the way we react to the situation.

“Let us take an exception to what is happening in other countries, we must do things that will make the situation better. Things are going to get better very soon,” Dogara said.

He then called on Nigerians to engage in prayers for divine intervention in the situation, saying that there is nothing God cannot do to turn the situation around.
