Those put in positions to handle the mantle of
leaderships in Africa has not really done much for this great land called
Africa. What is leadership all about in Africa! To some countries in Africa its
like a west african examination councils(WAEC) certificate.
That once you have
achieved it, its yours till death do you part. We have were people, just one
person have ruled a country for over more than 30years. For what? You want to tell
me that the country is like Sodom and Gomoral in the bible, were no one was
found worthy of been saved. So in these countries, no other persons could
handle leadership except them? This is bizarre. You ask? If one tenure(4,5 or
6years) could not be enough for someone to do what 55% of his/her followers
could see, believe and appreciate, remaining 45% let's not consider them.
Then, is it (8,16,30years etc) can now be
enough? Heaven no, its not true. In our country Nigeria, people rule only
achieving 5% of the country or state's goals and yet they wallow around the
medias criticizing those in replacement of their post. So many leaders have
embezzled the resource of this country. We do not have a well functional
refineries in the country and yet some leaders have that in the neighboring
countries, bizarre. Some leaders partners with their friends to handle
contracts so that at the end they could get commission.
They build some mini
companies with the country's resources yet they offer us little jobs as if they
are doing us favors(is like collecting or stealing your money and using it to
pay you at the end) big favor indeed . Banks, defrauded by their managing
directors, yet, little do we hear about their punishments. People steals
billions and trillions meant for the general publics yet they are applauded for
doing a great job, after all when charged to court they can pay the fine of
option out bail. That is why most of these people are never afraid to steal the
This is why those smiling are the people leading while those
they are leading are the once suffering. What a country, what a leadership!
Those meant to serve are the once been served. A king like Jesus Christ, served
his followers, the masses. He put them in the front yet he still led them from
the front and back. Our leadership is a wake up call.
Some persons in power
don't even know what leadership is all about because they are hoodwinks and
hooligans before they were waked up from sleeps by their godfathers to come and
occupy a position as a so called leader, bizarre. What can you make out from
such personalities. Agboro's chairman in a motor park as a local government
chairman, hahahaha, what else can we expect. We need to learn what leadership
is all about if we must be good rulers so as to move the country forward. May
God see us through and bless us all.
