Welcome to nigerian leadership council (NLC)

Nigerian Leadership Council (NLC) was formed on September 1, 2004, on the basis that leadership can be learned. Just as we learn how to drive, write, sing and dance, leaders must learn how to be GREAT LEADERS.

Because leadership is action (not a position), leaders must take actions to improve the lives of the people they serve, and a part of those actions lies with learning how other nations become developed and civilized, and doing all that is necessary to make their own country developed and civilized. For instance, it is obvious that leaders in developed and civilized countries do not rob their countries only to hide the loot in Nigerian banks - they bank in their own countries. It is obvious that leaders in developed and civilized countries do not abandone their country's hospital only to come to Nigeria for medical checkup and treatment - they build and maintain their own hospitals. Similarly, they do not abandone their own schools only to send their children to Nigerian schools - they build and maintain wolrd-class schools for their own children. These are among the obvious reasons why we call those countries "developed" and "civilized" - nothing more, nothing less. We want a lot of Nigerian leaders to start investing Nigerian oil money in Nigeria....Period!

Nigeria Needs a Democratic Government - by Prof. bedford Umez

"A government is not democratic when most of the leaders are absolutely free to do whatever they want with their nation’s resources and the lives of their people. Any objective thinker with some modicum of conscience, who understands the true meaning of democracy, and knows how most Nigerian leaders misuse Nigerian resources and abuse the people of Nigeria, cannot, in any way, shape or form, consider Nigeria a democratic country."

Leadership is Action - not a Position - by Prof. Bedford Umez

"World politics has several fundamental lessons to teach us about leadership. Here is one of them: leadership is parenthood. Parenthood entails the responsibilities of being a parent. Parents nurture, support, and encourage their children to be triumphant in life. Undeniably, parental support and encouragement pave the way to producing successful children. Likewise, leadership entails the responsibilities of a leader, nurturing, supporting and promoting his/her country. Indeed, true leaders produce great, dynamic societies, capable of producing successful citizenry"....

Corruption, Opposition, & the Ribadu Experience - by Dr. SKC Ogbonnia

"The thrust of this article remains that a history of weak legislatures, which has led to lack of checks and balances, is responsible for why Nigerian leaders have continued to engage in corrupt practices with little or no regard to the consequences of doing so. War against corruption is more attainable in countries with dynamic opposition culture, where the oversight functions of the legislature are readily promoted. Simply stated, corruption will remain unabated as long as an overwhelmingly majority is drawn from the ruling party...."

Freedom and Responsibility - by Dr. Obed O. Mailafia

"The task before the new administration is a stupendous and onerous one. It would be foolhardy for anyone to under-estimate the challenges ahead. We must affirm that this government and this president deserve the trust and support of all people of goodwill. Tough and often painful choices will have to be made in the coming years. It might even be necessary to wield the stick rather than the carrot from time to time. Nigeria's gradual descent into nihilism does call for extraordinary measures. I agree that human rights are sacred, but I also believe that we cannot afford the luxury of hair-splitting legal-constitutional niceties while Rome is being reduced to ashes...."
