Nation building and leadership

12 August 2013, 14:26 Onyeji Dominic

I am not a politician. God called me to serve as a missionary and messenger. But as a holy Sage, I know that acts of governance, accountability and nation building require wisdom, and there is nothing like wisdom outside knowledge.

What I am saying in essence is that a nation cannot be built in darkness. The bible described Jesus as the light to the world. He is source of every form or type of light including energy and power supply.

Jesus is both light and life. Insight reveals it and intuition whispers it to the wise everywhere that sound education and wisdom are two major things that enable both man and nation to tap light and life from divinity. This means that there can be nothing like transparency, advancement and nation building outside bounds of sound education.

Every business organization and leadership require managerial competence, and men or leaders cannot be competent when things like education and wisdom are neglected in a nation. We have to make our governments see the needs and lacks in academic systems of Africa. Things have deteriorated and retardation is biting everybody in ignorance.

Bright future and good hope depend on quality academic conditions and performances of individuals and nation at large. If we need development and advancement, then we must ensure that our future is very bright both as individuals and a nation at large. There should be erudite check and balance because mediocrities and ignoramus are not competent hands.
