Yakubu Dogara - Current economic crisis caused by Jonathan’s choices

SPEAKER of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara has traced current economic crisis to what he described as “easy choices made by former President Goodluck Jonathan.

”Dogara, who spoke dur­ing the child dedication service of a member of the House, Olusegun Ode­bunmi, held at The Citi­zens Church (TCC), Abuja, called on Nigerians, espe­cially Christians, to pray for God’s intervention.

He said: “All challenges we are faced with are as a result of our choices. When we had the opportu­nity to make hard choices,we went for easy ones and that is why we are boxed in a corner.

”Dogara said: “From about $110 per barrel price for crude, we are now aver­aging about $40 per barrel because of the crisis in the Niger-Delta; we used to earn about $110 on 2.2 mil­lion barrels a day.“Right now, it’s about $40 on about 1.2 million barrels per day.

So, you would see now that our national wealth has gone down by as much as 50 per­cent.“Unfortunately, when we had those wonderful periods, we did not invest. We did not diversify our economy and so, we are in for a rough ride.

“The roads may not be smooth, but, the truth is that most roads that often lead to wonderful destina­tions are not smooth.”Dogara maintained that Christians, no matter the situation, should see rea­son to celebrate Democ­racy Day.

He said it is time people turned to God for divine in­tervention instead of mur­muring and lamentation, saying, “with prayer, God can raise men and women of impeccable character who can contribute their quota in national develop­ment and transformation.”
