Nigeria’s president, Muhammadu Buhari has said that the country needs leaders with integrity and other godly characteristics to enable the country to overcome her current challenges.
President Buhari speaking at the 6th Annual Prayer Breakfast organized by the Christian Legislators Fellowship of Nigeria, on Thursday, October 22, in Abuja, said great leaders follow godly principles, The Nation reports.
The president, who spoke through Ibukun Odusote, the Permanent Secretary, Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, said: “The time has come for Nigeria to have godly leaders in a permanently changing world. Change, though usually resisted, is the most constant component of life.
Thus the need of a Godly leader in our ever changing world cannot be over- emphasized. Whenever God’s people have been without godly leadership, the result has been disastrous.”
“Godly leaders need to accept the responsibility which God has given them, and a godly leader must be a man with godly commitments, conduct, character and convictions,” he added.
Meanwhile, President Buhari has sent a letter to the Senate seeking confirmation of the appointment of the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and its commissioners.
