Yakubu Dogara, speaker of the house of representatives, says he has never struggled for anything in his life.
Speaking on Sunday during a thanksgiving service at the Winners Chapel, Durumi, Abuja, Dogara said ever since he encountered God before his university days, he has never lacked any good thing.
“Ever since I met God through this commission at a tender age, I have not had to struggle for anything in life,” he said.
“I never had any reason to struggle or lack any good thing in my life.’’
While acknowledging God as his source, the speaker urged Nigerians to keep praying for their leaders, noting that without prayers, nothing positive could be achieved.
He said the country’s problems, though conventional, do not require conventional wisdom but divine wisdom.
“Nigeria needs God’s blessings at all times,” he said.
“The nation needs steadfast leaders who will do the will of God, not theirs. We need your prayers; we can’t do it alone.”
John Adelekan, senior pastor of the church, urged the congregation to keep praying for leaders in the country because this is the right thing to do.
“Service to God pays, as it is the easiest way to experience unending blessings from Him,” he said. “God opens the doors of favour. When a man’s way pleases God, He would make his enemies to be at peace with him.”
Dogara was accompanied to the service by his wife and nine members of the lower chamber
