Please describe your vision of a world that works for everyone.
I have a vision of a world where to a high degree and extent, there will be functional structures put in place, in all sectors of the nation. This will help to increase productivity.
What do you see as the most pressing problems facing the world today?
Degrading values birthed by a weak leadership is to me the most pressing problem in the world. This degeneration in morals, values and ethics which culminates into failure of Character in the society is already a menace. We can see it affecting virtually all the sectors of all nations. This is not particular to any nation, it is world problem. Failure in our leadership to be men of Character is really a problem which in my opinion should be tackled as quickly as possible.
How do you feel these problems could best be solved?
The best way to solve this problem is to raise real leaders. Leaders who understand that at the core of effective leadership is Character. People who know what they want and how to get it, without bringing down anyone. Thank God for an institution like IIGL, we need more of this. The more quality leaders we have, the better our society will be. The key solution is to raise real leaders.
I am Bolaji Abiodun Samuel. I hold a Bachelor of Engineering (i.e B.Eng) in Chemical Engineering in Federal University of Technology, Minna. I am a born leader whose core area of strength is in motivating and transforming others to become the best they least imagine to be. As a motivational speaker and writer my dreams are to speak in seminars, conferences, youth platforms all over the world and to be a best selling author with my books. My interests are reading, writing, music, and motivational speaking. I have read quite a number of books and to pick a favorite might be tasking. But I will say “Persevere Until Something Happens by Cindy Trimm, “Power and Purpose of Vision ” by Dr Myles Munroe, “Ruling your world” by Bishop David Oyedepo, “Parable of Dollars” by Rev. Sam Adeyemi, “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki and some others are wonderful books. For movies, let’s just say I don’t have favorites but Jackie Chan, Jet Li and Van Damme are guys I like watching their films. I am currently a youth president in my local church assembly, and I’m also a highly sought after speaker in various youth platforms. I am happily married with children. I already have one book, though yet to be printed and another one coming out soon. I would like to participate in this program, to broaden my leadership capacity. Every organization and systems are at the mercy of their Leaders. Hence, the better the leaders we have, the better our society will be.
