Jesus Christ Is The Reason For My Success–Dogara

The Speaker, House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, says that his close ties to Jesus Christ led to him to the zenith of his political career.

Dogara shared his experience with new students of the Covenant University, Ota, Ogun State.

Dogara said his first encounter with the Chancellor of the university, Bishop David Oyedepo, was when the cleric came for ministration at the University of Jos.

He said: “His ministration that day made a lasting impression on me because on that very day, I made up my mind to dedicate 12 1/2 percent instead of 10 percent tithe to God despite that I was a student. See where that has led me to today,” Dogara said.

As a young lawyer fresh from law school, Dogara said he was already planning to make it big in the legal profession when the unexpected happened.

He said his foray into politics was accidental.

Earlier, Bishop Oyedepo said CU, which clocks 15 years this month, has been a product of “God’s miracle.”

“Right from the inception, we chose not to condone corruption and illegalities. Any student that engages in examination fraud is expelled, regardless of whether you are a son or daughter of a highly-placed individual,” he said.
