A 30 MINUTES LEADERSHIP PROGRAM ON TV

As the saying goes before the discovery of corn, the chicken had a diet; this is particularly true of African continent in general and Nigeria in particular. No matter how much civilized we have become, it can not replace basic values that make us humans; values like integrity, accountability, dignity, mutual and self respect, etc, have bound us together through the ages.
However, with civilization, we have come to a critical stage in our national history where every form of decorum and reticence have been thrown out of the window, a stage where leaders see their people as slaves or at best, second-class citizens, a stage where citizens no longer respect the laws of the land, a stage where lawmakers have become lawbreakers, a stage where young people are comfortable with money gotten at all cost. This is really a place of shame.
By research, however, we have come to find out that if the head is faulty, there is little the body can achieve. In John Maxwell words everything rests and falls on leadership. This is our reason for putting together a TV program that will help us as a people to evaluate the quality if leadership in our society and to be able to identify the good leaders who are worthy of emulation for showcasing.
