Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila says for a politician, going to prison is a badge of honor.
Gbajabiamila who was represented by Deputy Speaker Ahmed Idris Wase, said this 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.

He stated that good politicians should be willing to taste prison experience because it will come to them in very many dimensions.

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.

“That happened to us sometime in the past when we were being chased and humiliated, and he asked us to be resolute and face the issues as they were. He reminded us of how he was sentenced to over 90 to 150 years in prison. He told us that as leaders, there is always a judgment that could be passed.

“As our leader, we want you to appreciate what God has done for you; use it for the positive development of our country’s judicial system; use it in the interest of humanity.”


  1. Why on Earth our politicians do not have shame, for someone to go to prison is a badge of honor the question you suppose to be asking yourself is “what caused you to be imprisoned (your offense), why did you find yourself in prison or they just put you people in prison”. You better do the needful because one day you will account for it here and hereafter. Going to prison is a shameful act not a badge of honor, you should have it at the back of your mind.

  2. Oh now they want to make prison look like a good place so as to continue with their embezzlement
    God help Nigeria
