YAKUBU DOGARA: THE BIOMECHANICS OF A RUNNER

YOUTHFUL Speaker of the House of Representa­tives, Hon Yakubu Dogara at a quick glance cuts the image of an easy-going fellow that can neither hurt a fly, nor pull strings. But a closer look at his springy strides shows a locomotive efficiency that in a huffy has steadied him on the national stage of discourse since the convoluted events that led to his emer­gence as speaker this time last year. Not one given to controversies, two issues have managed to alter that squalid perception of him. While the nation was still awash with the sting­ing accusation from Abdullahi Salame representing Gwadabawa/Illela Federal Constituency, Sokoto that he snidely facilitated a bill that would expand the application of Sharia Law in Nigeria, a surprise amendment of the CCB( Code of Conduct Bureau) and CCT( Code of Conduct Tribunal) washed up. Salame had promoted a bill, which would expand the criminal aspects of the Sharia, as well as make it applicable nationwide, and not just in the 12 northern states that adopted the Islamic legal code. Dogara, a Christian was accused of allowing the bill to go un- debated in “collusion” with Salame. Al­though he swiftly denied it and went the whole hog to lecture on the nitty- gritty of legislation, not a few Nigerians, especially Christians were swayed by his grisly and tedious explanations. “Those talking about “sneaking” a bill are either ignorant of the process or plainly mischievous.” This bill, which has been sent to the House Special Ad – Hoc Committee on Consti­tution Review for legislative fireworks, has stimulat­ed much interest and placed the speaker within lens view. Not the least, is the CCT/CCB amendment. It came like a “thief in the night,” catching most ob­servers of the trial of the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki at the tribunal pants down. Dogara has in these two instances shown that his quiet mien, sober physiognomy, and cool visage can also dredge from the deep into a quick silver and feather duster. He has demonstrated that, like the ostrich, he can stand twice his normal height and run faster than anything else on two legs. He says through these that contrary to some expressed views, he has never been a sitting duck, and is fully adapted and engineered to steer the boat whether in turbulence or calm waves. And these even say much more about the roaring stability in the House and the good relationship with the Presidency.
