At 60, Obiano Bespeaks Live and let Live

By Ifeanyi Afuba

What equips or stands one in good stead for the arduous task of governance? The self initiative to serve? Aptitude cum personality constitution? Or the will to succeed?  Among the many theories thrown up in the efforts at unraveling Nigeria’s tragic condition is the perception that the country has had the misfortune of being led largely by persons who were reluctant to assume authority when they did. With just three exceptions, other Nigerian heads of government are considered to either have been drafted or persuaded to assume the mantle of office. Thus, shorn of a sense of mission, they were soon overwhelmed by the burden of managing the Nigerian estate. If this construct of ambition – great leadership correlation is to be regarded as valid, then as rules go, it is also subject to exceptions.  For David of the ancient kingdom of Israel and for Willie Obiano of Anambra State who clocks the round age of 60 August 8, 2015, -good governance need not be driven by political ambition.

President Buhari Represents New Awo For Nigeria's Liberation

The late Chief  Obafemi  Awolowo  and President Muhammadu  Buhari  might  have  lived at different times but, like identical twins,  possess   many things  in common-dynamism, pragmatism, integrity, self-  discipline, vision  and passion-to make Nigeria  work. The  impeccable past of these tested leaders has  proved that the bane of the country’s slow development since independence has been lack  of  purposeful  leadership.

Buhari-and-Awo Unlike the  reluctant  leaders  who  had been imposed  on  us,   Awolowo  and Buhari,  both armed with impeccable records of performance, the former as Premier of the old Western Region  as well as Vice Chairman  of the Federal Executive Council  in the regime of Gen.  Yakubu  Gowon,  and the latter, as a military Head of State, etc, adequately prepared for  the leadership of Nigeria. Three times  were each  unsuccessful- Awolowo  in 1959, 1979, 1983  and  President  Buhari  in 2003, 2007  and 20011.
