I did not want to enter Politics – Dogara Narrates Ordeal

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara on Saturday uncovered that he was never keen on legislative issues until he was chosen to head the House.

He noticed that betrayal and manipulating were the two central point that obfuscated his psyche from going along with it.

As indicated by him, entering legislative issues was not part of his plan.

On why he joined governmental issues, Dogara told DailyTrust: “It will amaze you to realize that it wasn’t altogether a ponder decision on my part to go into legislative issues. I was never keen on it. Actually, I abhorred governmental issues with an energy due to the treachery and manipulating included.

 “I’d already cut my teeth in the private sector, comfortable in my skin about the future having made some investments that were beginning to yield tangible returns.”

“With that in mind, I thought I needed no career in politics, because of my belief then that those who had a chance of making it in other endeavours shouldn’t have anything to do with politics. Therefore, I had zero interest in politics, generally, much less running for an elective position”, he said.

On his future plans after the end of his tenure as a speaker, Yakubu Dogara added that he had lost interest in planning the next phase of his life.

“I’ve lost interest in planning the next phase of my life. Therefore, my answer to your question is very simple: my training brings me a lot of opportunities for service.

“When I am done with speakership, I will weigh the opportunities available to me for service and the one that will result in maximum impact on others is the one that I will embrace without equivocation.

“It is not about what I want to do, but how can I deploy my talents and gifts in ways that will have maximum impact on others. I have no other plan,” he added.
