From Segun Babatunde in Bauchi
The immediate past Speaker of the House of Representatives Rt Hon Yakubu Dogara, has expressed hope and optimism that Nigeria will soon over its security challenges.
He said there is no nation on earth that has not been tried or tested as every one of them had experience moments of national peril.
Delivering a keynote address at House of Justice Annual Summit in Kaduna on the theme: Leadership, Governance and National Security, at the weekend, Hon Dogara urged Nigerians not to rest on their oars until the country unravels.
According to the former Speaker, ‘These security challenges, as deeply disconcerting as they are, they are not strange. There is no nation on earth that has not been tried or tested. Every one of them has come to moments of National peril. We can put an end to the moral vandalism that flows from all spots of bedlam across the face of the Nation.”
“No season last forever, therefore this cup shall pass if we all do our bit, such as we are doing at this summit, in order to keep the promise of this great country alive. For us to leave this Nigeria, our country that we cherish and hold dear, to others to defend is not cowardice, it is apostasy to the Nigerian creed. For those who think Nigeria has arrived at a dead end, let us disappoint them by turning the end into a bend. We can do it”, he added
