We have gone to different local governments, we have come to see that the problem is that of leadership.
Experience he said has shown that leaders who are fair and just to their subjects succeed. He therefore called on leaders to be cautious in the way they manage the affairs of their subjects. Urging that they be guided by the rule of equity, justice and fair play.
“If there is a leadership that is devoid of these ingredients, that leadership no matter how it is cannot get it right.”
Leaders should begin to see their followers as one entity irrespective of their religion, cultural or tribal affiliation. Only then can the nation move forward. He added.
The former Southern Kaduna People’s Union (SOKAPO) President said it is time our leaders begin to reflect and tackle economic and developmental issues from human perspective rather than that of religious, tribal and social cultural divides.
Revealations he said have shown that the average Muslims and Christians family in the far north face same problems with same Muslim/ Christian families in the south.

“As a leader, you need to see the people not from the premise of their religion, not from the premise of their ethnicity, not from the premise of their culture, not from the premise of their status. No! these are people that God has placed you upon to provide a way for them to reach a common destination.
But what we see today is different as different yardstick is being used to measure such indices.” He lamented.
“Kaduna state is endowed with many natural resources including people that are well trained but still cannot get it right.why?, Problem of leadership. We need leaders that are emphatic and well Inclusive .
