A good leader must have strong convictions, not necessarily muscular charisma and one main way to lead is by example. When you turn yourself into an example, then you’ll turn into a leader to be followed.
Many believe since they are advanced in age, then they are the best to lead. It is only those with Wisdom that could know that older age does not essentially make one superlative in leadership. The chosen of the Creator might be the last born of a family who would eventually emerge on top.
Leading indeed is that enigmatic ability that enables one to turn a vision into a reality. It permeates values, approaches, and actions.
His Excellency, Deputy Governor of Kogi State, Chief Edward David Onoja who is popularly known as CEDO might have been tagged despicable by his adversaries, but they must now in sensibility apprehend the reality that he is neither ridiculous nor dense. CEDO, has grandly manifested desired goodness on behalf of the entire Youths of Nigeria. Those who before now would not want to see him as a leader as they should at this instant in humility appreciate he has become, not only as an approved Commander of Igala Kingdom, but a political-assigned leader of our Society.
Indeed, CEDO did not start his carrier as a Deputy Governor. He battled the challenges of his rather distressing and thorny youth, From Banker to General Manager, Exploration and Production @ TALEVERAS E& P Nigeria Limited, Upstream Oil & Gas, Chief of Staff and now the deputy Governor with audacity. He labored courageously and also brilliantly. As sensible, liberal and a grassroots person, he grew up to live meaningfully. He never hesitated to serve with his best contributions and concepts. Kogites, most especially the youths are unshaken in their faith and belief in CEDO quest for life abundance for all Kogites regardless of class, creed, race or religion.
One day, when the history of a reoriented, reinvented and reformed populist, safe and prosperous Kogi State is written, CEDO will surely be depicted as one of the few who stood firm were many others wavered.
