Professor of Political Economy, Pat Utomi, is among the eminent personalities expected to speak at the leadership and economic workshop of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Faithfuls’ Chapel, on Saturday, September 21, at the Christian Missionary Fund House, Ilupeju, Lagos State.

Other speakers expected to speak on the theme ‘Empowered to Break Frontiers” include Permanent Secretary, Lagos State Ministry of Wealth Creation and Employment, Mrs. Boladale Dapo-Thomas; and Christian Wogu, among others.

This was disclosed yesterday by the convener of the programme, Fred Amata, who led members of his team to Rutam House, headquarters of The Guardian in Lagos. Amata, who said he was in The Guardian with his team to seek collaboration from the newspaper, lamented that the problem of Nigeria was leadership; hence the church came with the idea of leadership and economic workshop as means of empowering the citizens. He called on Nigerians, especially those who aspire to leadership positions, to learn leadership skills to meaningfully impact their followers.

Fielding questions from The Guardian management team represented by the Acting Editor, Dr. Paul Onomuakpokpo, the convener and pastor of the chapel said the only way for Nigerian leaders to lead well was to emulate Jesus Christ.

“Solving the problem of leadership in this country, I even wondered how Jesus Christ came and spent three and half years with his disciples and left. And since then, we are still following him. He impacted lives. That is leadership.

“So, what examples are we setting? That is why the church is coming up with programmes like leadership and economic workshop, where we impact people with leadership skills. As I said, leadership is a skill.

“Ignorant is not an excuse. Whatever you want in life, you must prepare for it. What you should do is to go and learn what you don’t know, for you to be impactful. The challenge we have here is that people don’t prepare for leadership,” he said.Dr. Onomuakpokpo, who welcomed them on behalf of the management, assured them of The Guardian’s readiness for partnership of Political Economy, Pat Utomi, is among the eminent personalities expected to speak at the leadership and economic workshop of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Faithfuls’ Chapel, on Saturday, September 21, at the Christian Missionary Fund House, Ilupeju, Lagos State.
