The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, yesterday called on politicians to seek power from God only as there is no political scheme that ensures attainment of leadership position.
Politicians, he said, should rather put their trust in God because “power comes from God, victory comes from God, no one, no matter how powerful he/she is can give you power.”
He said Nigerians have the burden to change their attitudes and re-orient themselves for the country to make progress.
Dogara spoke during a thanksgiving service organised by Rep Jagaba Adams Jagaba in Kagarko Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
“While Nigerians expect leaders to be role models, the followers must also know that leaders are recruited from among them,” Dogara said in a statement by his media aide, Turaki Hassan.
“This nation can only make progress when all citizens resolve that in their daily undertakings they will maintain the best of standards,” he said.
