SPEAKER of the House of Representatives, Mr Yakubu Dogara has said he is not excited about his current position, but by the degrees of impacts he has made on the lives of people, especially the less privileged in the society. The Speaker also said  Nigeria would be a prosperous country if all hands agreed to be on deck to work for its greatness. Speaker Dogara Dogara made the remarks while reflecting on his sojourn on earth in the last 50 years after donating food items, beverages, clothings, mattresses and toiletries to two orphanages: Treasure Orphanage and Abuja Children Home in Abuja, yesterday, as part of activities to mark his 50th birthday. He said his greatest achievement would be summed up in his ability to better the lots of most citizens of the country. He said: “For me, it is not so special as I thought, because all the time, I was determined that I am not going to celebrate any birthdays, until I am 50. So, whether it is special or not, it is very special to me. What I am taking stock of actually, is how I have invested this 50 years that God has given to me. It is not the kind of positions that I have occupied. A lot of people will say oh, it is because you are the Speaker; they call you the Number 4 person in Nigeria and so, you have achieved a lot. To me, that’s not an achievement. “I am measuring my life by the impact that those 50 years have brought to bear on the lives of others and I have seen it myself and so many people have been able to tell me how I have impacted on their lives these 50 years.”
