The former Speaker of Nigeria’s House of Representatives, Mr Yakubu Dogara, has called on Nigerians to pray for their leaders over the high cost of living rather than setting the country on fire with uncontrollable utterances.

Dogara made the appeal  during the burial ceremony of his late mother, Mama Saratu Yakubu Tukur, held in his country home, Gwarangah, Bogoro LGA of Bauchi State on Saturday.

He expressed dismay over the high cost of living that affects citizens and all the sectors in the country.

 “We have no other country to run to if we set Nigeria on fire. It is true there is anger across the country because of hunger, but we must tread with caution.

“The situation is affecting everybody irrespective of ethno-religious differences and so, the situation is not beyond redemption,” he said.

Dogara added the problem was not one man’s problem, stressing, “It is beyond one man. We must all join hands to solve the problem; each one of us has a role to play.

“If we set the country on fire, we will not be able to do anything. We will not even be here in this church for the burial programme. I am appealing for caution in the way we react to the situation.

“Let us take an exception to what is happening in other countries, we must do things that will make the situation better. Things are going to get better very soon,” Dogara said.

He also called on Nigerians to engage in prayers for divine intervention in the situation, saying, “There is nothing God cannot do to turn the situation around.”
