The House of Representatives Speaker Yakubu Dogara deserves to be celebrated because of his superb and remarkable leadership qualities and democratic passion, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar said yesterday.
The chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in a statement to mark Dogara’s 50th birthday anniversary, said the Speaker is one of Nigeria’s most skilful politicians who has demonstrated amazing leadership qualities at such vibrant young age.
The former Vice President said Dogara impressed him by the way he handled the leadership crisis in the House when it was inaugurated by dousing tension and restoring sanity.
Atiku also notes that the Speaker demonstrated what he called “maturity, calmness, patience and finesse” to rebuild confidence and sustain unity in the House.
“I am proud of what you have achieved so far in terms of sustaining unity and harmony in the House. Your performance is impressive and I would always support you in the endeavour to achieve unity not only in the House, but also in our party, the APC. You have given me hope that, if given a chance, our youth can perform wonders. As you savour the joy of this happy occasion, I wish you more good health, greater fulfilments and long life in the service of Nigeria and Nigerians,” Atiku also said.
