It was a celebration galore in Bauchi metropolis as youths of different associations under the auspices of Joint Youth Political Associations in Bauchi state staged a rally celebrating the emergence of Barrister Yakubu Dogara as Speaker House of Representatives.
The associations led by its chairman, Mustapha Mohammed told journalists in Bauchi after the colorful rally that saw the youth with different colour of shirts singing and dancing through major streets in the metropolis that the North East, particularly Bauchi State deserves the position of the speaker House of Representatives.
He explained that Bauchi state had a special political entity within the region as it had contributed a lot towards the sustenance of democracy in the country but however noted with concern how the region was robbed of many opportunities in the past.
He emphasized that the region since the assassination of the first prime minister, late Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa and former vice president Atiku Abubkar, had not occupied any prominent position in the political dispensation of the country, saying the region needed higher position in the political equation of the country.
Mustapha Muhammad however still maintained that the region was happy with the election of Hon Yakubu Dogara as speaker, considering the vast knowledge of the young politician that is representing his constituency for the third term at the National Assembly.
He commended the legislators and Nigerians who stood firmly behind the election of Hon Dogara during the struggle and urged them to support him more to enable him excel in that sensitive position, calling on the party or groups who either did not supported or voted against him to shun sentiment and pray for Dogara who was now their representatives to enable him succeed.
The chairman urged Nigerians to pray for President Mohammadu Buhari and other leaders to enable them lead the country towards a viable development, considering that the country is seriously in need of various reforms to bring back the lost glory of the country.
