Editor’s Take: A Birthday Reminder of Duties and Expectations

Governor Ademola Nurudeen Adeleke’s 63rd birthday, marked with well-wishes from President Muhammadu Buhari, reminds us of the high expectations placed on our leaders.

The President’s commendations for the Governor’s networking skills and amiable personality underscore these qualities’ role in political success.

Yet, the birthday message also contains a reminder for the Governor and all political leaders in Nigeria.

The President’s urging the Governor to place the welfare of his state and its people above all else is a timely call to duty, reminding Governor Adeleke and all our leaders of their responsibilities.

They are elected to serve the people and must prioritize public interest over personal or political gains.

It is a reminder that leadership requires strength, wisdom, and courage to make decisions that serve the people’s best interests.

It reminds them to maintain the balance between their connections and their duties, be humble and approachable, and prioritize their constituents’ welfare.

It serves as a reminder to us, the citizens, to hold our leaders accountable, to ensure they keep their promise to prioritize our welfare, and to stay informed and engaged in our democratic process.
