Youths from the North-East have endorsed the member representing Bogoro/Tafawa Balewa/Dass Constituency I, Bauchi State, at the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogaara, as their candidate for the office of Speaker in the incoming legislature.

Addressing a press conference Friday at the Nigeria Union of Journalists Centre, Bauchi, the youths under the umbrella of Arewa Youths Forum (AYF), led by the chairman of Northern Youth Forum, Auwal Pali, stated that the representatives must be careful in choosing the right people that would assist the President in fulfilling his promises to Nigerians irrespective of religious, ethnic and regional differences.

According to him, Dogara has proven to be a man of his words, with uncommon integrity, hard work and dedication to his duties over the last eight years in the National Assembly.

Pali said that electing Dogara as Speaker of the House would not only consolidate the performance of the House but will further unite Nigerians, especially Muslims and the Christian minority from the North, where he comes from, to ensure lasting peace in the country.

“The desire to have good leadership in the nation’s green chamber is a hope that lingers on the minds of every  citizen of the country and we are advising the national executive of the All Progressives Congress, the board of trustees and all members to elect credible leaders to man exalted position in the country, and Dogara is one of them,” Pali said.
