President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday said at the sixth Annual Prayer Breakfast organized by the Christian Legislators Fellowship of Nigeria in Abuja that great leaders that Nigeria needs leaders with integrity, transparent character, faithfulness and other godly attributes to overcome her current challenges.
Buhari spoke through the Permanent Secretary, Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Ibukun Odusote, “The time has come for Nigeria to have godly leaders in a permanently changing world. Change, though usually resisted, is the most constant component of life.
“Thus the need of a Godly leader in our ever changing world cannot be over- emphasized. Whenever God’s people have been without godly leadership, the result has been disastrous.”
Quoting copiously from the Bible, Buhari used Jesus Christ as example of a great leader.
“Throughout scripture, God has given us various principles for godly leadership.
“Godly leaders serve others instead of demanding to be served. Godly leaders need to accept the responsibility which God has given them, and a godly leader must be a man with godly commitments, conduct, character and convictions.” He emphasized.
