2015: Group Canvasses Quality Leadership

THE need for quality leadership in Nigeria formed the thrust of admonition of a non-political organisation GAMJI, to the electorate, ahead of next month’s general elections.

   The Kwara State chapter of the group during its Public Lecture for year 2015 in Ilorin said unless the nation was blessed with the good leaders of this country, the nation’s economic fortunes would be at its lowest ebb.

   Therefore, the GAMJI club has announced its resolve to establish a GAMJI centre for leadership in Ilorin, the state capital.

   At the centre, the visionary and exemplary leadership qualities of the late premier of northern Nigerian and Sar’dauna of Sokoto, Sir Ahmadu Bello will be inculcated in the younger generation.

  The president General of the group in the state, Dr. Abubakar Ibrahim, who announced this in Ilorin said the establishment of the centre

 became imperative because of the stark reality  “that Nigeria is today suffering from lack of capable and effective leadership in all spheres. Nigeria is now in dire need of good legacies to overcome its current social, political and economic crises. 

  “Such leader must possess moral authority and esteem values of integrity, honesty and must be ready to undergo hardship and suffer deprivation on behalf of the poor masses. Such leader must be competent and sound in the art of managing diverse people and abundant resources and must properly understand his mandate as father of the nation, not a as a son or daughter of Yoruba, Hausa, Igbo, Ijaw, Nupe or Ebira. Such leader must clearly know that Nigeria is a pluralistic society.”
