IHRC NIGERIA: Leadership is a powerful concept that will make a lot of difference when available in any organization, community, or nation. It has been pointed out by some scholars that everything rises and falls on leadership. Despite this recognition, leaders are scarce in our modern society.
According to International Human Rights Commission, Students of Ebor Secondary School in Ebor Orogun of Delta State were on Wednesday 25th January trained on the concept of leadership and the skills required for leadership competence in discharging their responsibilities as newly appointed school leaders.
Speaking on behalf of the International Human Rights Commission Special Monitoring Mission (IHRC SMM) during the school's leadership summit, Comrade Peter Oloche Anyebe explicates the practices and commitments that can help leaders get things done emphasizing the levels of influence by a leader and distinguishing between a leader and a person in a leadership position.
“This is a critical time in our world when the future of leadership is at stake. A lack of strong leadership has made a mess of our world, and every country on earth is critically challenged by the absence of resolute leadership. There is an urgent call to rescue our country Nigeria from this quagmire situation and prepare those who are emerging leaders or who aspire to lead to discovering how ethics and values free you to fulfill your purpose in life".
He commended the school urging other schools to emulate the same standard as it provides a process for rebuilding young leaders and exposing them to the understanding that having leaders of character on the local, national and global levels is the major key to solving a myriad of problems in the world.
Marvelous Omonigho and Flourish Osondu are other SMM Officials at the event alongside Hon. Abanum Oghenekevwe Benjamin (Councilor representing Orogun Ward 3), Mr. Obor Samson, Principal Government College Ughelli Delta State, and other school Principals.
