- The former speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has urged all Nigerians to be united
- The ex-speaker cursed those posting contents that pose a grave danger to the unity of Nigeria on social media
- Dogara, however, prayed for Nigerians at these critical times, saying his heart cry is for Psalm 91:7 to become the reality with everyone
The immediate former speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has called on Nigerians to unite amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Dogara said all the country needs is God's protection and blessings, adding that health and life take precedence to anything.
He said: "We are marked with the spirit of exemption and my heart cry is for Psalm 91:7 to become the reality with us all, IJN."
Dogara said what some people write and say on social media pose a grave danger to the unity of the country, adding that those who engage in such should retrace their steps.
He said: "It is like our forbears, who were God fearing men placed a curse on any Zaar Son or daughter that betrays our people. I won’t name names but no one has ever done it and ended well. Those who don’t know should ask.
"This curse is still in operation like the curse King David placed on mount Gilboa after his soul mate, Jonathan fell there in battle.
May this curse be the portion of anyone or authority in our land that defies the unity of our people and continue posting seditious posts on social media or taking actions that further imperils our unity."
