A US-based professor of Leadership Ethics, Dr Princess Halliday, has advocated the creation of a ministry of leadership to help the country bridge her leadership gaps.
The youthful renowned leadership expert from Rivers State, who has been at the vanguard of an inclusive leadership module involving the youths and women in Nigeria, said this was necessary as Nigeria turns 60 years old as a sovereign nation.
According to her, “Nigeria is continually developing, and I am proud of our continuous accomplishment. I believe that a ministry of leadership needs to be created to govern leadership affairs in Nigeria effectively. In 60 years, no ministry has carefully evaluated how leadership is exhibited in Nigeria. Through this ministry, destructive leaders can be professionally overhauled. I can say that Nigeria has some great leaders.
“These leaders need constant personal development to help stabilize their emotional intelligence and emotional agility. I am honoured to have been bestowed an Extraordinary Ability in Leadership in the United States due to my tenacious desire for authentic leadership, diversity, and Inclusion. This is a tremendous honour, and I am thankful to the United States.
“I am exceptionally focused, self-directed, committed, and passionate about leadership. One leadership challenge that I think Nigeria has had for such a long time is education. Nigerian leaders need to be authentically educated and to really understand the essence of leadership. I do not mean education from the back door. I think that the essence of leadership needs to be re-introduced, re-educated and strategically integrated in Nigeria”.
