Going to prison is honour for politician, says Gbajabiamila

HOUSE of Representatives Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila has said prison experience for any politician is a “badge of honour”.
The Speaker, who was represented by Deputy Speaker Ahmed Idris Wase, spoke when he led Principal Officers of the House on a visit to Senate Chief Whip Orji Uzor Kalu, who was recently released from the Nigeria Correctional Centre in Kuje, Abuja.
Wase said the leadership of the House was in Kalu’s home to sympathise with him over his incarceration.
The Deputy Speaker urged the former Abia State governor to take his experience as a life’s lesson and put everything before God.
He said: “We are here to sympathise with you on what happened and your incarceration. As a politician, I want you to take it as one of those things.
“First, we congratulate you and urge you to put everything before God and believe it is part of destiny.
“My Leader, the late Chief Solomon Lar, told me not to fear, as a politician, to go to prison. He told me that going to prison is a badge of honour.
“If you are a good politician, you should be willing to taste prison experience because it will come to you in very many dimensions.
