President Buhari’s neutrality made me run for Speakership position – Dogara

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara has said President Muhammadu Buhari’s insistence not to interfere with the process that produced the National Assembly leaders encouraged him to vie for the position.

Dogara said: “We must also commend the President for his decision not to interfere in the process leading to our emergence by refusing to impose anybody on us.
“It was his position on this matter that gave us the encouragement to offer ourselves for this leadership.
“Although, we faced a seemingly insurmountable hurdle which took the grace of God to overcome, so it was Nigerians who made this possible, members from all parts of the country, and so we can’t say it was only the people of Bauchi or the Northeast who supported me.”
Dogara noted that “the House must be stable for us to succeed”.
He continued that, “Now we have to face the issue of governance. In politics, people have different views and positions either based on conviction or personal interest.
“I bear no ill feeling towards anybody who did not vote for me, because this is the House for all and people must have their preference and I see all us as one.
“We must come together to bring about stability and unity in the House, so as to make the achievement of the President’s policies a reality by facilitating speeding enactment of legislations that would help him to govern well”.
