I never struggled for anything in life: Dogara

29 June 2015, 12:23

Abuja - The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Honourable Yakubu Dogara, on Sunday said he had been a product of grace and never had to struggle for anything in his life so far.

Dogara said this when he attended a Thanksgiving Service at the Winners Chapel in Durumi, Abuja.

The speaker said that ever since he encountered God before his university days, he never lacked any good thing.

He added that "ever since I met God through this commission at a tender age, I have not had to struggle for anything in life.

"I never had any reason to struggle nor lack any good thing in my life."

While acknowledging God as his source, the speaker urged Nigerians to keep praying for leaders, saying that without prayers, nothing could be achieved.

He said conventional problems do not need conventional wisdom but divine wisdom, stressing that "Nigeria needs God’s blessings at all times.

"The nation needs ‎steadfast leaders who will do the will of God, not theirs.

"We need your prayers, we can't do it alone."

Pastor John Adelekan, the Senior Pastor of the Church, urged the congregation to keep praying for leaders in the country, adding that this was the right thing to do.

He said "service to God pays, as it is the easiest way to experience unending blessings from Him."

The pastor said service to God also opened the doors of favour when a man's way pleased God, as He would make ones enemies to be at peace with him.

The speaker was in company of his wife and nine other representatives.
