Yakubu Dogara, speaker of the house of representatives, has appealed to the government of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to deliver on its promises to Nigerians, saying “it will be a disaster” if the party fails.

Speaking on Wednesday when he ‎received Mohammed Abubakar, governor of Bauchi state, at the national assembly, Dogara said it was the need for a positive change that led to the support which the APC got in the last general election.

“Our people have witnessed bad leadership, especially in the ‎last eight years. It will be a disaster if we don’t save this situation,” he said.

“Everybody knows the passion of our people in Bauchi State.‎ They embraced us against all odds, against the sitting governor because they feared the kind of situation in which they found themselves under the last regime and they needed change and thank God we came with this promise of change.

“To be candid, God has set for us, the platform through which we can deliver this change‎. Today, 12 of our members are all of the APC, 3 of our senators are all of the APC. We have a governor who with the whole of his team, are all members of the APC.

“And thank God and thanks also to the president of Nigeria, His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari, who really saw the kind of love the people exhibited in the course of the campaigns, and to be candid, in his own way, he has discharged all the burdens a father can do to his supporters or children.

“He has given us more than we deserve, I can say that, in Bauchi state. I can even list the number of appointments that we have and I am seated here as the speaker of the house of representatives.

“Why I am saying this is, it now behoves on to pull our energies together, to synergise‎, to ensure that these people that the president has appointed help to ameliorate the conditions of our people.”

He urged the governor to work with all federal government appointees from Bauchi in order to harness their resources for the progress and development of the state.

“If there is no leadership, this will not happen, and the difference between a bush and a garden is just organisation,” he said.

“If you have a ‎wonderful garden and you don’t organise it, over time it will become a bush in itself.

“That therefore means that without leadership, we will not even come together, let alone bring our resources and strength together to improve the conditions of our people.”

‎Earlier, the governor ‎said the purpose of the visit was to identify with the speaker for his role in stabilising the polity.
