The world has fast toppled the concept of leadership entirely, portraying the rich and famous in public view with minute offer of service as the essence of ‘leadership’…
We have reduced the responsibility of the leader to showmanship, and that has been the gangrene of the Nigerian economy. We have long sacrificed ourselves on the altar of deceit, thinking the higher we rise the more important we become, or so it seems.
The proof of service is productivity, the essence of productivity is development, but service does not come from an office, it comes from the heart occupying an office… If you cannot serve, you cannot lead. If the chief servant feeds himself alone, then he is less than human.
We hope to build a new generation of youths that would be well grounded in primarily discovering themselves as unique individuals, understanding their talents, exposed to a broader world of possibilities and fitting into the society for their own good, others and the world at large… Taking the lead!
Rabbi Hilel said “If I am not for myself, then who will be for me, and if I am only for myself, then what am I? If not now, when? If not here, where?”
Nigeria will rise again!
