The Forum of Nigerian Stakeholders in South Africa, (FANSA) at its meeting last Weekend in Pretoria, South Africa reviewed political developments in Nigeria.
The Chairman of the Forum Dr. Ufuoma Omakara Samson, in a press statement, commended the Speaker of the House of Representatives Rt Honourable Yakubu Dogara for the maturity he displayed in handling the crisis in the House which ensured it was eventually resolved amicably.
The Forum commended Speaker Dogara for his display of selflessness by putting the interests of his party, the APC, and that of the country above personal political interests.
While we note that Dogara possesses the experience, technical know-how and leadership qualities required to steer the House of Representatives, we want to passionately urge all other principal officers as well as all other members of the House to, in the spirit of the prevailing peace, put their differences behind and place all hands on deck to support him.
We also urge Nigerians to rally and give the current National Assembly leadership moral support that would guarantee the right atmosphere required by the Federal lawmakers to deliver on their individual and collective mandates to the country.
Those of us in South Africa believe in the socio-economic upliftment of our country through the instrumentality of the National Assembly. We therefore reaffirm our unflinching support for Dogara, and promise to mobilize Nigerians at home and in the diasporas to give their support to his leadership in its determination to deliver positive and vibrant legislations for good governance of Nigeria.
