Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for signing the North East Development Commission Bill into law.

In  a terse statement personally signed by the Speaker, he commended the President’s sensitivity to the plight of the highly traumatised people of the North East.

“I expect that the expeditious  coming into force of the commission will remedy the long years of underdevelopment suffered by the region. The recovery and redevelopment of the zone devastated by terrorism  is expected to last decades.”

It will be recalled that the North East Development Commission establishment Bill was sponsored by Speaker Dogara in 2015.

He had also moved a motion for which the House passed a resolution calling for the recovery, resettlement, and rebuilding of the violence ravaged region and the convocation of an international donor conference for  total reconstruction and rebuilding of the region.
