Leadership: The Tragedy Of Nigeria ~ By Klinsmann Ohamadike
In the medical field, there is a difference between “A disease” and “A disorder”. Leadership becomes a disease when leaders stop ensuring that the interest of others come first and a disorder when we elect unqualified persons to positions of trust.
We sell our future when we fold our hands thinking that most political leaders we send to Abuja go there with the mindset of making laws that would ensure a better future for all of us. In reality, this is not entirely the case.
If it were, they would be out of business.
We eventually become “Milk Cows” to our policy makers when we fail to task them and ask important questions about their stewardship and the positions which we entrusted unto their care
We fail in our duties when we refuse to make hard choices and instead of asking the right questions we kill each other over a royal wedding in faraway UK, discuss BBN, discuss Trump’s foreign policy (when we are not US citizens.
How many US citizens talk about Nigeria’s foreign policy and how many UK citizens talk about the OBA of Benin’s daughter’s wedding)
Ask the right questions. Make the right calls and choose your priorities.
When you task your leaders and when your leaders make the right choices, other nations will celebrate you and perhaps when that time comes, a prince of the Sokoto Caliphate, a Prince of Oduduwa or perhaps my young friend, Prince Orizu of Nnewi, would be celebrated by the comity of nations when they decide to marry.
It is not the color of our skin that kept us in this shit hole we found ourselves (As Trump purportedly insinuated).
It is the color of our economy and it is bleak, thanks to years of failed leadership caused by the wrong choices we have made
I am only making common sense
