Hon. Yakubu Dogara, the Speaker of the National House of Representatives, has cautioned the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) against setting dangerous and evil precedence in the political history of Nigeria by declaring elections inconclusive.
“It will be very, very unfortunate that INEC, which is led by a first-class professor of History, will set this dangerous and unacceptable precedence in our political history,” Dogara said at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) emergency National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting in Abuja on Wednesday.
“What has happened is pure evil. Our consolation as faithful members of this society is that evil does not last forever and no evil doer has ever escaped punishment. …it is a law of nature, that whatever you sow is what you will reap.”
“For those who believe in power for the sake of power and not because they want to empower people, not because they want to better the lives of our People, there are also lessons they can learn from history.
“History is replete with examples of all those who pursued power for the sake of power. Whether it is Hitler, I don’t want to name more, one example is enough. Their lives have always ended up in some tragedy, that is the fate of anyone that seeks power for the sake of power. We have seen that displayed in Nigeria and I wish we can take heed from the lessons of history.”
