DAY GOVERNORS RETURNED TO SCHOOL

DAY GOVERNORS RETURNED TO SCHOOL

May 29 is days away. It is the day our new leaders across board would be sworn into office. Thank God our governors (incoming and returning) were turned into pupils or do we say students few weeks ago as they returned to class recently in an event in Abuja (induction of the incoming and returning governors) to take tutorials on governance, democracy and government. Gratefully, one of the lecturers or teachers did justice to her course. She is Chief Mrs. Ibukun Awosika, Chairman of First Bank.


Chief Mrs. Ibukun Awosika, Chairman of First Bank.

Nigeria has never lacked in personnel in any area of life. This was displayed and proven once again by the ebullient Awosika who perfectly delivered her assignment. I was impressed by the video of her lecture which I have watched over 10 times.

She literally schooled the governors and took them through leadership course. She did not stop there. She gave them loads of psychological education to motivate them in carrying out their duties. Awosika charged them on touching lives thus, reminding the governors that they cannot fix everything hence they should pick core and key sectors that will impact on lives to fix.

Awosika reminded them that it is not having power that matters but what you do positively with power. She told them that in keeping legacy of solid leadership, the governors must appreciate that acquiring wealth meant for the people for personal interest is like someone placing a curse on him or herself. She told them that while they take oaths of office they should remember that such oaths hunt them if they make the people regret voting them into office.

Awosika was very firm, blunt and decisive in her delivery. She fully and truly represented and spoke for the Nigerian women and mothers. She said, “I am from Oyo State, married to an Ondo man but I am more concerned about my immediate environment which is Lagos. Whatever the governor of Lagos does or fails to do gives me more concern.” This according to her should be the thinking and attitude of all Nigerians irrespective of where you come from. Wherever you are is home and the governors should know that they are not only serving the people of their states but Nigerians at large.

Awosika regrets that the kind of politics played in Nigeria is “Politics of people and not politics of ideology”. This is why the politicians are unfortunately always talking about political parties. She got a standing ovation from her students (the governors) after her delivery.

I salute this great Nigerian. I salute Ibukun Awosika who has lectured the governors and told them the bitter truth like a mother she is. It is up to them to do the right things as we look forward to the next four years. There’s no gainsaying that the last four years has been full of pains and hardship brought about by the economic recession which took almost two years for the country to come out of. The scars and pain of the injuries of that recession are still on Nigerians psychologically and physically.
