President Muhammadu Buhari has come out to urge leaders at all levels in Nigeria to lead by example.

He recently revealed this in a message to the 2021 annual lecture of Arewa House, held on Saturday in Kaduna.

According to him, leading by example is very key for the nation to overcome its present challenges, therefore leaders must step up.

He added that good leadership would surely offer a platform for the nation to rise above its current difficulties.

His words, “Our ability to collectively address the challenges in our country today will go along way in unlocking its huge potentialities and the starting point is leadership by example.”

“We must not assume that the problems of our country should and can be solved by President Buhari administration alone.”

“Yes, we lead by example, but every stakeholder has a responsibility to work collectively and put the interest of our country first and foremost.”

“We must not forget the virtue of selfless service, which was inherent in our founding fathers, like the Sardauna.”

“We have no choice if indeed we are committed to the welfare, prosperity, peace and security of our people, but to be selfless in service and honour them by making peace and security as a cardinal point in all our actions.”
