The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara said the Federal Government is putting necessary measures in place to end economic recession in the country.

Dogara gave this assurance at a reception organised for him and other members of the House by the Benue State government.

He disclosed that the Federal Government has concluded work on a document which content would be implemented soon to bring immediate relief to the masses.


He lauded the Samuel Ortom’s administration for its achievements in various sectors in the state, urging him not to be discouraged by criticisms.

Ortom had sought Dogara’s support to ensure the completion of projects, especially the federal highway in the state.

Meanwhile, Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa has urged Nigerians to seek the face of God through prayers and fasting to end the recession.

Okowa spoke at the weekend at the Manna Mountain Prayer Conference in Asaba, the state capital.

“Every one of us has a role to play to make our nation better. We need to return to God and seek his face so that he will heal our land,” he said.

According him, there is no individual that is too small to positively impact on the challenges facing the country.

The governor commended the Publisher of “Our Daily Manna,” Bishop Chris Kwakpovwe for spreading the Word of God across the globe.

Also, the Prelate, Methodist Church, Nigeria, Dr. Samuel Chukwuemeka Uche, has disclosed that the country could only overcome recession, if the people shun moral depravity, selfishness and spiritual bankruptcy.

He made the disclosure at the order of service for the inauguration of the Diocese of Ereko and the enthronement of Rev. Joshua Olukayode Adeogun as the Bishop of Eroko Diocese.

According to him, Nigerians should enthrone righteousness, peaceful co-existence, decency and integrity in order to move forward.

He said: “What we call recession is our sins of the past. We need to go back to the old ways we were taught; the way of decency, integrity and tolerance. In those days, Muslims and Christians lived together in harmony. The land that we acquired to build Methodist Churches in Lagos, Abeokuta, Ibo land, Kaduna, Jos was given to us by both Christians and Muslims.
