Please describe your vision of a world that works for everyone.
My vision of a world that works for everyone is to get innumerable number of people empowered through education. I have come to realize that education is beyond the ability to just read and writer, but it is the ability to get empowerment for the future. And a prosperous future has been the heart-cry of everyone that ever lived the face of the earth at one time or the other. Meanwhile, I have a vision to get innumerable number of people empowered through education by:
• Nurturing pupils from primary school to secondary, and to university.
• To build ‘losthoreif city’ fully residential for these children and their teachers\lecturers.
• To train and nurture these children to becoming world changers and generational leaders.
• To shelter, cater for the emotional, spiritual, physical and intellectual needs of these children.
• To have all our aims and objectives accomplished and catered for free of charge by a private body.
I am already partnering with a group of people who has like-mind, with whom I can bring this vision come true. An adage says; “a tree does not make a forest”. This group of partners/members is known as: HOT EYE INITIATIVE GROUP OF PEOPLE.
What do you see as the most pressing problems facing the world today?
The most pressing problem facing the world today is leadership factor. A leader is the one who guides, one who directs, and show the way for others to follow; in order to achieve a set goal or vision. The ability of a leader will determine what is produced and accomplished through her given followers.
I have heard of several cases whereby the people in the position of¬ authority are continuously instigating the development of nuclear weapon; what do they want to use those weapons of destructions to do? Could it be to destroy themselves or their citizens? Is it to write-off another country that does not support their opinion or decree? All and many more of questions like this always pops-up on my mind.
Of which, I strongly believe it is not good enough to use guns and bombs to dictate, because intelligent people should discuss matters. Meanwhile, inappropriate leadership is highly responsible for wrong decisions and opinions that were been carried out by the followers of such people in the position of authority
The fear of being responsible keeps people to avoiding leadership, and to just seek after position. Of which, a true leader will accept responsibility and lead people in the order of goals and vision, but not to seek after titles for the sake of recognition.
Leaders are people who know where they are going, and carry other people along; these leaders are full of vision and they get others involved in fulfilling it. A true leader is not excited about being it, but where they are leading the people.
How do you feel these problems could best be solved?
The way I feel this lack of appropriate leadership could best be solved, is by getting empowerment through education for leadership.
Having engaged certain group of people to undergo International Institute for Global Leadership, and advised them to be a graduate in it, this problem can be challenged.
And with HOT EYE INITIATIVE GROUP OF PEOPLE, we have been able to map-out a strategy that works for everyone who is ready for a change that we need and desire. We have developed a subject called, Leadership Development Studies (LEDS).
This is a curriculum that is well fashioned for both junior and senior secondary school. In this curriculum, we have been able to simplify the word LEADERSHIP in order to inculcate leadership ability into the minds of up-coming generation. This subject has been successfully mapped-out with the help of expertise who have put us through the process.
We thank God almighty because Leadership Development Study (LEDS) is a working idea already. This subject have been accepted and thought in Excellers’ International School in Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria.
Having registered Leadership Development Study as a subject, under the law of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. We are at this point sending proposals to the Federal Government of Nigeria, so that LEDS would be widely accepted and included in the school curriculum of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
It is high time that people seek for position of authority in order to render services, and to bring their followers in any given career to a common goal in benefit of all and sundry. I believe it is only those who have been educated (empowered) for leadership that can function very well as the leading leader.
Obviously, we have gone through bad government, we have had wicked people in our position of authority; despite all this we survived. And survival simply means there is hope. For any time there is a survival it is a good signification that there is hope for the future. I believe in a change that we need, I believe in God.
