Fayemi: you can’t be leader if you are not competent

Ekiti State Governor Kayode Fayemi yesterday emphasised the need to groom the youth for leadership based on the doctrines of character development, integrity, honesty and fear of God. He also called for the re-evaluation of politics, saying that those who enter public offices through politics must also have alternative jobs they can return to when they leave power. Fayemi said while grooming a successor, self-development, professional competence and pursuit of good name should not be compromised by those aspiring to future leadership. The governor delivered a lecture titled: “Breaking the limits: Preparing the next generation for leadership”. It was part of the activities marking the third reunion luncheon of the Council of One-Day Governors” organised by the New Era Foundation in Lagos. The founder and President of the foundation, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, who reflected on the success story of the ‘Spelling Bee Competition and other activities of the non-governmental body, described education and character training as the best legacies for the younger generation.
