Yakubu Dogara has said Nigeria’s future is secured because of Nigerians’ commitment to God.
“As in the case of Abraham’s encounter with God over the fate of the city Sodom and Gomorrah, God will intervene to save this country.
“What gives me hope is that we have so many people who are committed to God. The future of Nigeria is secured.
“We have a very bright future, we have great army of leaders in this country,’’ he said.
His book titled: “The Breaking of Nations”, warned that “the 21st century may be worse” than any previous time in history because “the new century risks being overrun by both anarchy and technology.”
“I like the idea that only few of us are here. Jesus wasn’t a fan of a crowd. He chose few, almost all of them successful Professionals.
“Luke was a physician, Mathew an accountant, Peter and others running a successful fishing company.
“Every change or revolution has always been promoted by few change agents and early adaptors. Bulks of the people always come later,’’ he stated.
“The times in which we live. millions have watched the efforts of America, Britain and the United Nations to rebuild Bosnia, Afghanistan, Iraq and other struggling countries.
“While it is shocking to see the devastation and suffering caused by war.
‘It has also been sobering to witness the difficulties, frustrations and intrigues that have accompanied these human-driven attempts to intervene and rebuild nations where millions have been abused and exploited.”
“Communists, socialists, monarchists, dictators and democracies and even religious leaders have all tried their hand at solving these problems.
“Yet none have found the key for building truly successful nations or salvaging faltering countries.
“All nations today are struggling with their peculiar problems, thus, according to him, “will God descend from heaven to rebuild this nation?
“Will God send angels to rebuild our nation? God didn’t do it for Israel and He won’t do it for Nigeria.
“This responsibility rests on our shoulders and whether we succeed or not depend on the source of our wisdom.
“Without God nothing works. Except we are back in our Eden, we cannot accomplish the task of nation building,” he said.
