Yakubu Dogara, speaker of the house of representatives, on Saturday said other countries have passed through the challenges confronting Nigeria.

Dogara spoke in Abeokuta, Ogun at a lecture organised as part of programmes for the 75th birthday celebration of Chief Alani Bankole, father of former Speaker of the House, Dimeji Bankole.

He said that the challenges facing the nation were not novel, adding that many civilised countries had passed through similar situations.

He said citizens of countries which have witnessed such critical periods surmounted the situations because they waged united and formidable wars against the challenges.

Dogara stressed the need for Nigerians to support the government and be united in tackling the challenges to fast-track the process of economic recovery.

“The challenges are not novel because a lot of countries have passed through them.

“It is always men and women of those generations that have stood up and solved the problems.

“It is our collective responsibility to combat our challenges and I thank God that there is a rallying call from the governors for a national emergency,” he said.
