“If we want real transformation, I mean radical shift from worst to excellence, should we draw up a sketch of a just society and then simply march towards it? no, i think it’s better to look around and find the seeds of a better future – perhaps dormant – in the present, and nurture them into a viable alternative that can challenge and transform the world around us. So we call upon all the good spirited organizations and individuals with sense of patriotism and innovation, those who are ready to unleash their ingenuity for the advancement of our people and development of our dear Anambra State, We call upon you to stand at the birth of a new era, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the state from the hook holding back the developement and peace of our dear state and from the miseries of crises and infrastructural deficit and to harness the energies, raw materials and the ingenuity of our people for the good of the entire south east especially our teaming youth who have taken Anambra as their second home.”
A great leader they say is self actualized and self actualization is the highest form of human growth. For Chief Ben Etiaba, a good leader does not take what is similar to his views as facts and base his decisions on that. He uses reliable and unfiltered information to make judgments and to come up with resolutions. In other words, he stands above his own believes to observe events objectively and does not suffer from a self serving bias. Chief Ben Etiaba in his simplified and highly cordinated life style and a steady positive mindset which is an essential trait for a well-groomed personality. As an accomplished lawyer with track record of excellence, he remains the brightest among the stars as far as Anambra state gubernatorial election 2021 is concern.
Furthermore, the ability to not be closed off to new ideas or challenges to established norms is what sets apart an open-minded leader from others. A person who can look at the best lessons of the past and current while being open to the ideas of the future has the best opportunity to create success in themselves, in people and anything they lay their hand on. For Chief Ben Etiaba, as the governor of Anambra state, expectations must never be undermined and promises must be kept and we have no single doubt whatsoever that he will sure keep to his words. Because being able to change with the times flexible when needed and decisive when required is a rare leadership quality posseses in abundance by Chief Ben Etiaba. Sir, your great sense of value and innovative mindset is next to non and a source of strength and inspiration to the younger generation. For example, his excellence performance and intelligent approach to issues in the last debate reflects a man who is not only well equipped and prepared to unleash his ingenuity for the good of the Anambra people, he is an embodiment of empathy and Innovation which separates him from others contenders with great margin. Even though the public can witness an ongoing plans and political intrigues to short change him especially by some mainstream media and their backers aimed at demoralise his supporters, but we are glad that the people of Anambra knows where they are going and what they want.
And the big buzz about his intimidating personality and unequal empathy stems from a revolutionary shift in the science and art of how we understand human nature especially the understanding of human diversity. The old view that we are essentially self-interested creatures is being nudged firmly to one side by evidence that we are also homo empathicus, wired for empathy, social cooperation, and mutual aid but recent human activities especially in leadership circle have tried to produce opposing pictures of this fact but for Chief Ben Etiaba, empathy is not just an essential leadership skill, or just a way to extend the boundaries of our moral universe. In his nature, it’s a habit we can cultivate to improve the quality of our own lives and others around us. It’s the ability to step into the shoes of another person, aiming to understand their feelings and perspectives, and to use that understanding to guide our actions towards the development of the state. Many thanks to Chief Ben Etiaba for being there for us especially at the time when he is needed most. His patriotism for Anambra cause and determination for the advancement of Igbo race is a source of pride. As the chairman of Enugu Sport Club, and one time as a member of the Club’s Disciplinary Committee, he proved himself as a man with great innovation and vision for the Igbo and the records are there.
Finally, Kyle Golding, the CEO & Chief Strategic Idealist of The Golding Group wrote, Empowering the next generation of leaders demands honing their unique skills, bridging class gaps, and understanding what makes them thick is not only a prerequisite to becoming an ideal leader but a reflection of a true statesmen.” Chief Ben Etiaba is a paragon of virtue, equipped with the right qualities needed to transform the state of Anambra.
