Commissioners, Special advisers and other political appointees in Cross River State have been told not to parade themselves as leaders of their various local governments and wards except they are so properly modeled or chosen by God.
Speaking as a special guest during the unveiling and album launch by a youth choir at Transcorp Metropolitan Hotel Calabar, Imoke said accidental leaders fail without any prediction.
The governor warned his commissioners and other political appointees not to convert their appointments to becoming leaders of their various political bases.
He encouraged the youths to always learn through the ropes and be properly modeled as the leaders of tomorrow.
“In Nigeria, we really depend on the new generation and that new generation has to be a model generation. Leaders don’t just emerge, leaders don’t just happen, I pray and I beg all my politicians to know that leaders don’t just emerge. Accidental leaders fail and political appointment don’t make you a leader; that is the most important thing that you must also know”
While assuring the youths that he will attend their annual talent discovery day tagged “Youth Swagger” for the first time, the governor encouraged them to use their talents and shun vices.
“I will be attending my first one to encourage and show some support to the youths who are the leaders of tomorrow and that leadership of tomorrow is here in this room and it is emerging”
“What is happening now is going to influence you, your life, your future, your outlook, your appreciation, your commitment, your passion, your vision, your desire, all that is going to emerge from what you do here and we appreciate what Pastor Lawrence is doing to shape your life meaningfully” he said.
