Dogara tasks Dangote, others to help Nigeria out of recession


The Speaker of House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara has urged Alhaji Aliko Dangote and other business leaders to help Nigeria out of the current economic recession.
He made this call in Benin City, Edo State during the Governor’s Ball held in honour of Godwin Obaseki, to mark his inauguration, where many heads of industries and players in the financial sector, including Alhaji Aliko Dangote and AIG Imoukhuede.
“I had come in contact with the governor when I was serving in the House of Representatives, specifically, on the House Committee on Capital Market. He made appearances before that committee and I can attest to the fact that I knew him to be a man that is very deep. And so, when I heard that the people of Edo State identified him as one of the shining stars that will take over from the governor tha by popular consensus, performed credibly well,  I knew that they had made a good choice.
“I will say that with our brother, who is his deputy, a man who cut his teeth early in student union activism, who is an activist, a comrade, I am sure that has better positioned you to pilot the affairs of this state to the required destination.
“I  believe beyond reasonable doubt, that together, you will achieve a lot for Edo State, what has not been possible”, a statement by Mr Turaki Hassan, Dogara’s spokesman quoted him to have said.
“I believe because the governor who just handed over, like I said, distinguished himself while serving here, they will have no excuse not to build or surpass on the activities or achievements that he made while he was governor. The only thing that will stop them is excuses and I believe that the future of democracy, whether in Nigeria or elsewhere, belong to those who will excuse the excuses of others but not theirs”, he stated further.
