This was after the late Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, the country’s first prime minister and Atiku Abubkar, the vice-president to former President Olusegun Obasanjo, he said.

He said that the region needed a higher position than that of a speaker but that, “the region can still do with the election of Dogara as speaker.”

Byal called on Nigerians, especially people of the region irrespective of their religious, political and tribal affiliations, to pray for President Mohammadu Buhari and other leaders so that they could bring the desired change to the country.
