I Was Never Interested In Politics, I Hated It – Yakubu Dogara by Letenwam: 9:32pm On Sep 08, 2018
Nigeria's Speaker House of Representative, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, who sat for a chat with Daily Trust, disclosed that he hated politics, noting that betrayal and backstabbing were the two major factors that clouded his mind from joining it.

Yakubu Dogara who revealed why and what lured him into politics during the interview, added that he was never interested in it.

“It will surprise you to know that it wasn’t entirely a deliberate choice on my part to go into politics. I was never interested in it. As a matter of fact, I hated politics with a passion because of the betrayal and backstabbing involved.

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 plans after the end of his tenure as a speaker, Yakubu Dogara disclosed that he has 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 said.

This man is simple living doesn't even look like a politician.

But I'd say he made the best decision of his political career by not following Saraki.

Dogara has acknowledged that his political career is over. In your next life, if you hear anything Saraki trying to make friends with you, run for your life.

But you are now interested because of the money in it.

The money in it is like chop one chop two.

Touch and follow, no more leaving it.

Says a confused man

Is dat why he is neither here nor there.

His body is in Apc, while his souls and all his allies are in pdp. He is anti buhari but fear not to lose in main election if defect.

Same way he is not interested in polictics , yet played a dirth game to emerge as speaker

Naija leaders self
