The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara has said that there is no success or achievement without sacrifice.

Dogara said this at the inaugural reunion organised by the 1992 class of law graduates from the University of Jos, in Abuja on Saturday.

He recalled how they all met at the school and said with their successes and achievements, they should make sacrifices by contributing their quota to the system that moulded them.

“We came together looking timid and never knew what each one of us would be 24 years after graduation.

“We always believe that the Lord has a purpose for each one of us. You will never know the purpose why the Lord had assembled us at the same time as class mates.

“None of us knew what he or she could become in future and look at us all now, most of us are making successes  in our different endeavours.

“Remember nothing good comes without sacrifice we should use this occasion to reflect on what action we wish to take.

“Whatever we are today we cannot deny that we achieved them through what we got when we were in the University of Jos.

“Those achievements we have accumulated should be made available for the betterment of the society and much sacrifice is required of us,” he said.

The convener of the event, Mr Abdul Mahmud, represented by Mr. Emeka Onohwakpor, urged his fellow alumni to give thanks to the Lord.
