Mazi Nnamdi Kanu - IPOB Leader
Qualities of a good leader: I want to believe is the understanding about leadership. I want to shade some light on this concept by saying that leadership is an act that borders more on natural phenomenon. A leader is born, and readily acquired, it is not a quality one can get by mere wishes.

But the intricacies of leadership can not be exhausted by the above phenomenal notion alone. Now this goes to say that whether or not a person is born a leader or develops such skill and abilities to become a leader is open for debate. There are some clear characteristics that are found in good leaders. These qualities are mostly natural and can be developed further until it becomes part of one’s personality. Let us explore them further.

A good leader has an exemplary character and the charisma is indisputable. It is of utmost necessity to say that a leader must be trustworthy to be entrusted with the task of leading others. A good leader must be of good dispositions and always on the side that makes for the wellness of those he leads, and at this point, I must say that this is where most Nigerian politicians and so called men of God are found wanting. A leader must be honest and a person of integrity.

A good leader is enthusiastic about their work or cause and also about their role as a leader. People will respond more openly to a person of passion and dedication. Leaders need to be able to be a source of inspiration, and be a motivator towards the required action or cause. Although the responsibilities and roles of a leader may be different, a leader needs to be seen to be part of the team working towards the goal. This kind of leader will not be afraid to roll up their sleeves and get dirty.

A good leader is confident. In order to lead and set direction, a leader appears confident as a person and in the leadership role. Such a person inspires confidence in others and draws out the trust and best efforts of the team to complete the task well. A leader who conveys confidence towards the proposed objective inspires the best effort from team members.

A leader also functions in an orderly and purposeful manner in situations of uncertainty. People look to the leader during times of uncertainty and unfamiliarity and find reassurance and security when the leader portrays confidence and a positive demeanor.

Good leaders are tolerant of ambiguity and remain calm, composed and steadfast to the main purpose. Storms, emotions, and crises come and go and a good leader takes these as part of the journey and keeps a cool head.

A good leader as well as keeping the main goal in focus is able to think analytically. Not only does a good leader view a situation as a whole, but is able to break it down into sub parts for closer inspection. Not only is the goal in view but a good leader can break it down into manageable steps and make progress towards it. A good leader is committed to excellence. Second best does not lead to success. A good leader not only maintains high standards, but also is proactive in raising the bar in order to achieve excellence in all areas.

These few characteristics are foundation to good leadership. Some characteristics may be more naturally present in the personality of a leader. However, each of these characteristics can also be developed and strengthened. A good leader whether he naturally possess these qualities or not, will be diligent to consistently develop and strengthen them in their leadership role. These and more are qualities visible in the Leader of IPOB worldwide, and are the reason millions of Biafrans in Biafra land and world over view him as their worthy leader despite the shenanigans of the government of Buhari in trying lately to manufacture nonexistent factions.

For some time now, the killing of IPOB family members has become a call to duty, as though, they are not human beings. Were it in a civilized society, such killings would not have gone unnoticed and the perpetrators would not go free without punitive actions taken against them. A lone voice was speaking in the wilderness, for a people under subjugation and faces extinction. But what did you do when that voice was hushed?

All hands must be on deck to liberate our God’s own country from the hand of Boko Haram, and be free from hate, bitterness, intimidation, oppression, servitude and other devices of our enemy-the Nigerian Government and their cronies. The men of God in Biafraland, the Old Eastern state Governors, Senators, House of Reps, and Ministers, down to local Government Chairpersons must join in this struggle to free Biafra and free Nnamdi Kanu - the man of truth; the real prophet of our time, and a man whom his voice pursue multitudes of enemies.

The work of freedom is the work of God, no pastor or men of God in Biafra land should abandon the work of our freedom, which Nnamdi Kanu has established, due to fear of intimidation as you normally do in Nigeria, allowing the people you are pasturing to become prey in the hands of their enemies. Stand up to condemn the evil operation of President Buhari and his failed Government.

When you fail to defend the poor, orphans, the captives (Biafrans) and the less privileged ones in Nigeria, know that you are contributing to their suffering. When one misses the track, it is obvious that he or she will continue doing the work of disobedience, following the road of destruction - the broad road where there are full of evil manipulations, as in Nigeria. For those who are preaching one Nigeria has missed the track and they are not ready to come home. That is why since Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB started operating Radio Biafra and piloting the affairs of IPOB worldwide; I keep listening and watching the entire Nigerian men of God, as well Biafran men of God, condemning the killing of peaceful IPOB protesters by tyrant Mohammadu Buhari.

Are you serving God or Mammon? By your attitudes towards the restoration of Biafra, you know where you fall in and it is only you that will answer the question accurately. Truly know that Mordecai is a man like you, who motivated and ordered Queen Esther in Esther 4:13-14, “Think not with thyself that thou shalt escape in the king’s house, more than all the Jews (Biafrans). For if thou altogether holdeth thy peace at this time, then shall there be enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews (Biafrans) from another place; but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?’’

Be the imitators of good work not of evil. Note: keeping mute as Biafrans are ill-treated, makes you a worthless tool in the hand of God. Queen Esther obeyed the commandment of Mordecai and saved the Jews from the evil plots, while you failed to heed the voice of Nnamdi Kanu - the Director of Radio of Biafra and the leader of IPOB to join the struggle for the emancipation of Biafra.

Are you for the rich people or the poor? Both the rich and poor attend your churches, but only the rich ones you are giving special preferences for their well being. In so many churches I have attended, I realized a lot of misconception. What is not happening in the secular world is highly welcomed in many churches, why, because most of the pastors or men of God have missed or abandoned what God ask them to do,

In Biafra Land, many years ago our mentality depends on “WE”, but in these present day, many are parading on “I and My Family Alone’’. I wish to advice everybody and the so called men of God to come out of their domestic sovereignty and come to the ancient route where they will see the sons and daughters of others as theirs. It will be a thing of joy to do so.

It will yield you more than what Nigerian government will pay you. Stop pursuing shadow, and come to the rear light, which is Biafra.

Remain Blessed as you read this to understand and read meaning to what Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his lieutenants are advocating for Biafra.
