Speaker, House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has urged the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government to try its best to fulfil its promises to Nigerians.
Dogara made the call when Bauchi State Governor Mohammed Abubakar visited him on Thursday in Abuja.
“Our people have witnessed bad leadership, especially in the last eight years; it will be a disaster if we don’t save this situation,” Dogara said.
He acknowledged the overwhelming support given the party by the people of Bauchi.
“Everybody knows the passion of our people in Bauchi State; they embraced us against all odds, against the sitting governor, because they feared the kind of situation in which they found themselves under the last regime.
“They needed change and thank God we came with this promise of change,” he said.
“It now behoves on us to pull our energies together, synergize and to ensure that these people that the president has appointed help to ameliorate the conditions of our people,” Dogara said.
He urged Governor Abubakar to work together with all Federal Government appointees from his state in order to harness their resources for the progress and development of Bauchi.
“If there is no leadership, this will not happen, and the difference between a bush and a garden is just organisation.
“If you have a wonderful garden and you don’t organise it, over time it will become a bush in itself.
“That therefore means that without leadership, we will not even come together, let alone bring our resources and strength together to improve the conditions of our people,” he added.
Speaking earlier, the governor said that the purpose of his visit to Dogara was to identify with him for all the good things he had been doing to stabilise the polity.
