Some days ago, I had an encounter with a a man. I had engaged him in a conversation on leadership and policy making in governance. I was impressed by the quality of his thoughts.
He had exposed me to what I call rudiments of governance. Nigeria is regressing because of the inept leaders we vote in to represent us.
Most of our Nigerian politicians are intellectually incapacitated. They lack the intellectual wherewithal to lead even the littlest group. Unfortunately, but the virtue of wealth or any other fair or far means, they were voted into power.
Some of these people have continuously embarrassed the nation and the masses by their continuous display of ineptitude. Some others, are bereft of the required intellectual sagacity to sponsor bills and contribute to the legislative discuss. Hence, their constituents and constituency is left out.
I’ve seen several people throw up fliers and enticing graphics declaring for one position or another. I have a glance and smile. Some are sincere with there in tensions to occupy these position while others want to have their share of the loot.
Intellectual strength and character are two crucial qualities amongst others to be sought out from any politician who aspire to represent a people in the lawmaking chamber.
Prince Dr. Emeka Eze is a man with an enviable level of academic exploit. This fact is evident in his academic record where he set the pace and trailed the blaze. He is a medical doctor and has demonstrated competence in his career.
He has decided to throw his hat into the ring by vying for a position in the green chamber to represent the good people of Dunukofia, Njikoka, Anaocha Federal constituency.
Of course, he has chosen the party of the people as a platform to project this aspiration. Dr. Emeka Eze is one aspirant too many. I hope PDP stakeholders will get it right this time if they really want to capture DNA. It is only a person like Dr. Emeka Eze that can make it happen.
This man is also a refined gentleman. He listens, he digests and he understands. There are very few politicians who possess this quality. He is a silent achiever. In the coming days, you will get to know more about him.
