Focus on pro-people policies, Udom tells leaders

Focus on pro-people policies, Udom tells leaders

Governor Udom Em­manuel of Akwa Ibom State has called on Nigerian po­litical class to ‘concentrate more on policies that will move the country forward and not politics that will draw us backwards’, say­ing that ‘Nigeria’s democ­racy can only be strong if the country’s economy is strong’.
Governor Udom, said this while giving his re­marks at the Leadership Awards 2016, organised by the Leadership Newspaper and held in Abuja, where he was awarded Leader­ship Governor of the Year 2016.
The governor pointed out that good leadership is importantly expected of every elected person in Nigeria, as it is the bane of the seemingly Nigeria’s backwardness considering the amount natural and human resources owned by the country.
“It is widely known that what we have as a country is all that we need to com­pete with any other coun­try in the world. Nigerians leaders must be men that are more than what they are seen to be because that is the message of leader­ship.
“A good leader is not measured by using maxi­mum resources to achieve maximum result but by using minimum resources to achieve maximum re­sults. A person with such trait is a good leader. And that is what it means to make a difference.
“So I call on Nigerians to know that our democ­racy will only be strong if our economy is strong. So we need to have a clear paradigm shift and con­centrate more on policies that will move us forward and not politics that will draw us backwards.
“And this is a time for us to believe in ourselves as Nigerians, this is a time for us to ask ourselves what can we do for our country and not always what can our country do for us. All hands must be on deck”.
