Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said Nigeria needs a new culture of leadership.
Gatekeepers News reports that Osinbajo said this as the keynote speaker at Olashore International School Association (OISA) Foundation’s 10th memorial lecture in memory of Oba Oladele Olashore at Victoria Island in Lagos State, South West Nigeria.
He said while leadership is not the exclusive preserve of those privileged to be at the helm of affairs, true service should be the hallmark of effective leadership.
Osinbajo was represented by Mr. Dapo Akinosun (SAN).
He noted that the life and legacy of Oba Olashore represented an effective template for good leadership.
He said: “We cannot continue like before. We need a new culture of leadership in the country.
“We must limit leadership from encumbrances that affected it. Leadership is service. Service to others doesn’t diminish us; it enriches us. Service is a revolutionary act. Leaders don’t fall from the sky.
“Leadership is a character. It is not only within the purview of the privileged.”
