Averting the Needless Crisis in Brass – By Nathan Egba

My advice to the young man is to expand his consultation or briefing process to include all the critical stakeholders one of whom is Hon. Isreal Sunny-Goli. That is the price and responsibility of leadership, you must learn to accept and work with everybody including your political opponents or even perceived enemies, for you to have a peaceful and successful tenure, no matter how brief or long it may be.

 

 

I sometimes wonder how some people see appointments into political offices. I know that hangers on and supporters of those appointed sometimes see it as a case of “we don hammer” in the hope of finally realising unfulfilled dreams or “we go deal with them now” as a case of avenging earlier perceived wrong inflicted on them.
But would it rather not be better if such appointments are used to expand one’s horizon, implant some legacies, touch lives and make more friends rather than the opposite? Without apportioning blame on any of the parties in the brewing crisis, it is my well considered opinion that the newly apponted Caretaker Chairman has the greatest role to play in bringing the crisis to an end before it escalates beyond what it is now.
He is the Chairman now, so whatever may have happened in the past, he should let go and instead focus on the present.

 

My advice to the young man is to expand his consultation or briefing process to include all the critical stakeholders one of whom is Hon. Isreal Sunny-Goli. That is the price and responsibility of leadership, you must learn to accept and work with everybody including your political opponents or even perceived enemies, for you to have a peaceful and successful tenure, no matter how brief or long it may be. If it is true that the Chairman restrained his followers from responding to provocation, that is commendable. On the other hand, I call on Hon. Isreal Sunny-Goli, as a leader and elder to forgive whatever the youngman may have done wrong, but rather invite him for advice and guidance for the sake of our dear Brass LGA.

 

On a final note, Mr Chairman, liaise with the Security agencies on better strategies for curbing the escalating crime situation in the area, but call off the Curfew and find a way to repair the unfortunate damages inflicted on His Highness Cameron’s compound and buildings. May God help us all live in peace.
