Clerics task leaders on accountability
Religious leaders have stressed the need for leaders in public and private sectors, especially among religious organisations, to be more accountable in the discharge of their responsibilities.
They stated this at the launch of Hope for the Hopeless and The role of Accounting, Stewardship and Effective Leadership in Church Growth, books written by Joseph Adeyokunnu, the national treasurer of Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) in Lagos.
The occasion attracted eminent personalities such as boardroom guru, Dr. Felix Ohiwerei; wife of former Cross River State governor, Onari Duke; and national overseer of RCCG, Joseph Obayemi.
“There is a particular portion of the book that talks about stewardship and that is what is lacking today. We have many more workers than stewards. Stewards are people who take ownership of tasks as if it is theirs. God put these ideas in our hands to package them for future generations,” the author spoke about one of the books.
According to him, there is a lot of hopelessness in the society. “We never had it this bad with sharp increase in suicide rates. I believe that God has inspired the writing of this book to give hope to so many, especially those who think that all has ended with them in our society. The book points people to the fact that with God, there is always hope.”
Commending the author, Ohiwerei said, “The author is a practitioner at the highest stage. Books by such authors as this need to be read again and again. What the classroom teaches is different from what one learns from real life experiences. These are books that are full of life experiences.
