If we want less incompetent men in leadership roles, those responsible for judging candidates need to improve their ability to distinguish between confidence and competence. I personally heed to the latter. In essence, what marks a leader for life, engraves your name on the lips of many is fashioned by actions and inactions in difficult times.
Now let me cut it into pieces to the level we all familiarize ourselves with. Just a little over a year ago, if my memory serves me right, the entire student’s populace went to the poll to exercise their franchise to elect a new leader to be at the forefront working on designs of solutions to address students concerns and our collective interests for the 2019/2020 academic year.
Mr. President, It must be crystal clear that these are NOT conspired deductions to put low your administration or whatsoever because I know you and your outfit are doing as best you can. This is but only a CLARION CALL to you so processes can be sped up quickly in response to addressing, we, the final year student need THE SOUVENIRS.
Without being disrespectful, one thing I know for sure is that a leader’s first responsibility is to define realities, not to give hope. This stem from the fact that no lucid information had been even drawn to the attention of, we, the student populace with regard to when our souvenirs would be made available to us. The inactions displayed at this height is far from acceptable especially when it is barely left with A WEEK for us to complete the academic year.
Mr. President, I may probably not know how hard your outfit is trying to get us the souvenirs and all happenings within your office but all I am propounding about is that your outfit must at least apprise us a bit, even if it’s a difficulty you are facing.
It is so disheartening that just yesterday at 6:49 pm your outfit deemed fit to issue a lengthy communique of some procurement saga with the past administration. What happened all this while. And I’m very passionate if you can clarify for better understanding to all students.
Please are we to beg before we get informed from your outfit? Are we to display great anger before we get informed from your outfit?… Or do wait till everyone is done with their papers planning to get home before we get informed from your outfit? I double bet this is not the kind of questions a “no” answer would be a choice.
To some of my colleagues who have planned or are planning to emulate the actions taken by our seniors against the previous administration last year on almost the same issue would be nothing short of pathetic. I really pray history does not repeat itself. This alone should be a cogent reason to showing clever resourcefulness in informing students on new update us as quickly as possible as regards the souvenirs.
Mr. President, I usually recall on the “sweet agenda” you put forward throughout your campaign endeavour before taking on the mantle, I think this is the opportunity to screw some “sweet” moments in the heads of the final year students before they are deemed graduates so they never forget those moments.
……..to be continued.
