Rivers State can truly be great again if only we could look beyond those pecuniary sentiments that blurs our mental sight and dig deep into the true philosophy of leadership and appreciate same as the needed instrument of our dream transformation.
I have witnessed a leadership with an admirable potency of creating an inspiring vision of the future. In other words, I have seen a leader that creates vision and motivates and inspires people to engage with that vision. Aside engaging people, he takes active part in managing the delivery of the vision. He takes priority in modifying behavioral patterns and building the team, so that it is more effective at achieving the vision.

He is a team player who places so much value on individual players because he believes that success is only achieved with the help of others.

He adjusts his behaviour to match the situation and he listens to the team because he values the team.
