Some people say that good governance is demonstrated by its great economy, good infrastructure, and maintenance of ministries and public sectors of the government. But in Nigeria it’s the opposite. Many previous leaders wondered why and came in through force or fairness to make a turn around, and when they came in they
pointed fingers on the ‘’who’s’’ but little did they know that, the problems that we have is not a “who” actually the problem of Nigeria is a ‘’what’’. As we read down you would agree with me that the problems of Nigeria is self afflicted by a what.
You would agree with me that in the spiritual realm everything that goes on there is based on principle. The bible even made reference saying that the spiritual controls the physical, believe it or not Nigeria is controlled by a powerful force that has refused to let go all these years, these force is a combination of power, fame and glory but I tell you the only way to conquer such force is to ask a higher authority to break the jinx, without that we will keep going in circles and no matter the how someone comes in with good intentions to bring about change it would posses him and turn him aside, until he leave the seat of the leader it will remain his watchdog every micro second everyday till like forever. Let’s dissect these forces into parts to get a good understanding. Don’t forget that I said there are principles and guideline to effective leadership from the spiritual.
Power: meaning influence, control, strength or force. These are the most definition of power. You see in the spiritual there are tiers of powers and each of them bow to the higher authority, the possessing spirit could be good or bad in these case we all know that it’s the bad, also you would also agree with me that the good exceeds the bad, but the good is always silent until you call upon it.
Fame: meaning a state of being famous. We all want to be famous but in this case the leaders kill to get power and become famous, you see our lord Christ was famous because of his good deeds and yet a good leader, like I said in the previous paragraph the good exceeds the bad no matter how long it takes. Leaders must also be ready to die for his country and by so doing the people will follow his foot steps.
Glory: is a combination of honour and fame, as in this case praise and worship to god. The leaders of today want glory so as for people to worship them, but you see its not all about just been glorified, but without effective leadership you cant be seen as one, besides the bible also recorded that all glory belongs to God the creator, we may have glory but it should be through God and not through the dark side. These things are called vanity upon vanity, the richest man that ever existed till now named ‘SOLOMON’ went ahead to clarify that.
In conclusion we all should appraise the attitude of making amends to a superior leader which is Jesus Christ and copy his ways; no one can break you because the joy of the lord is our strength. The leaders of this nation will never get things right no matter how they try because the forces of darkness are so strong that it knows everything you even think that are good and turn them bad. This is my message to every upcoming leader. Be strong in the lord and he will make your path right and the part of the people you govern. No matter your religion without a team there can never be breakthrough.
