Nigeria needs new leadership culture – Osinbajo

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo says Nigeria needs a new culture of leadership.

He said true service should be the hallmark of effective leadership as the position is not the exclusive preserve of the privileged.

Osinbajo made this comment as the keynote speaker at Olashore International School Association (OISA) Foundation’s 10th memorial lecture in memory of Oba Oladele Olashore yesterday on Victoria Island in Lagos.

The late Oba Oladele Olashore was the Owaloko of Iloko-Ijesha and the founder of Olashore International School in Osun State.

Represented by Mr. Dapo Akinosun (SAN), Osinbajo 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. A 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.”
