    N300m Dogara’s Biography Proceeds Goes To IDPs, Widows, Orphans



    IDRIS Khalid
    About N300 million realized from the proceeds of biography of the immediate past Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has been neatly spent catering for the needs of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), Widows, Orphans and Indigent students. 

    The expenditure for this whopping amount was made public by Dogara in Abuja during the Speaker’s Inter-Secondary Schools debate, recalling that the money was realized in December 2017 during his 50th birthday anniversary. 

    “At my 50th Birthday event, I promised that all funds generated from my Biography lunch will go to charity. I am happy to report that I have kept my word. About N300 million of my biography proceeds have been invested in education and to provision of palliatives to Internally displaced Persons, Orphans and the vulnerable”

    Dogara’s Media aide,Turaki Hassan, said in a statement revealed that out of the Dogara’s magnanimity, a number of students are now studying abroad, while thousands are pursuing education in various Nigerian tertiary institutions, most of them from indigent families who cannot afford the cost of educating their wards at any level. 

    Dogara said “We have sent interventions to so many IDP camps across the North East and we are still trudging ahead with God’s help. Education is everything. Without education, no nation can move forward”.

    “It was about a school debate and quiz competition. That was how I knew the importance of debate and public speaking to anyone who would aspire to be a leader in the future as young students were being encouraged to clearly communicate their thoughts”.

    Dogara therefore stressed the need to raise leaders who can think in prose and speak in poetry and debate forums are the most consummate platforms for raising such leaders, saying thay “Equipping our youth with debate skills is the beginning of our journey to a healthy and advanced democracy”.

    He observed that the problem today in Nigeria is not knowledge, but rather the problem is that Knowledge gives you just information which if you fail to process and apply in practical terms then you are not a wise person, that has been the dividing line in this country.

    “As a student of democracy let me shock us a little. Contrary to what we have heard from the debaters about the failure of our democracy, I dare say that Democracies don’t die because they don’t work and they also don’t fail, it is only the citizens of democracies like you and I that make democracies work”. 

    According to him, democracy can only die if Nigerians fail to employ the tools of democracy to advance themselves and the nation, and therefore call on all to be alive to our responsibilities as citizens of a democracy, pointing out that the political space is wide enough to accommodate all.

    “I agree with the debaters that our democracy is in peril on  account of insecurity, corruption, poverty and myriads of developmental challenges which we are still grappling with. But I must say that as serious as the above identified challenges are, none of them or all of them is and are enough to destroy the promise of Nigeria or the destiny of our great nation.”
