Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Yakubu Dogara, has charged young lawmakers to shun the arrogance of power and be prepared to stand for the truth regardless of who is for or against it, or even when the consequences are dire.

Speaking at a Conference organised by the #NotTooYoungToRun Movement for young lawmakers at both the national and state levels, he added that qualified youths who have the capacity to serve with distinction are abundant in Nigeria and though they have been kept on the sidelines since 1999, they must be disciplined and be prepared to afflict themselves in order to bring comfort to broken Nigerians.

Speaker Dogara encouraged them to stand up against the bondage of godfatherism if they are determined to make a difference in the political space for the good of all Nigerians.

He urged them to remember that they carry the burden and the promises of a generation that must not fail, that must be on the wings of discipline that produces character, without which they cannot be men and women of influence and in that case, without influence, they cannot change anything
