Speaker of the House of Representatives, 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,” Mr Dogara said through a statement by his media aide, Turaki Hassan.

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