We’ll Spend Recovered Loots On North East – Dogara

Dyepkazah Shibayan, Abuja
Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara has said that the President Muhammadu Buhari administration will use recovered looted funds in rebuilding the North East.
This is contained in a statement issued by his spokesman, Turaki Hassan, which quoted the speaker as disclosing this on Sunday in Benin Edo State when he visited Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) from Adamawa and Borno state, camped there..
The Speaker encouraged the IDPs not to lose hope assuring them that government is doing everything possible to return them back to their communities.
“As long as this government endures you will always be in our hearts. Thank God for the change. If we had continue like before probably Boko Haram will have take over Jos, Plateau state by now
“When I came in here I saw a people who are determined not to be broken in spite of the circumstances that surround them. I must encourage you.
“I am part of the region of the north where you came from. I am also affected. I had to concede one of my houses for IDPs from Yobe and Borno state to live in”, he said.
The Speaker urged the people to imbibe the spirit of forgiveness saying “the situation we found ourselves is not just peculiar to us but has been happening in the course of human history.”
“It is painful, very painful. You may remember how you left and the people you left behind. Forty percent of you here are orphans. You may be tempted to always cast your mind back over what happened to you. Once you are stuck in that you will be filled with bitterness and anger and if that happens you can’t make progress. I know it is difficult but we have to take our minds off it”, he told them.
He urged the IDPs to put their trust in God because “where people have trusted God there is no situation that God cannot change”.
“Very soon, may be in this year, some of you may go back home to your communities. This is something we must do because we have no other country than Nigeria”, Dogara said.
