Politicians and others at the helm of affairs in the nation have been advised by Goodluck Jonathan to be bothered about the value of their leadership style.

Speaking at the one-year memorial summit in honour of the late Captain Idahosa Okunbo in Abuja on Saturday, the former president called on politicians to make sacrifices necessary for patriotism.

Jonathan stated that political leaders ought to think about the legacy they are leaving behind.

“Those who also lead at various capacities in politics and business, be they councillors, council chairpersons, governors, lawmakers at both state and national levels as well as boardroom gurus, should be bothered about the value of their leadership style.

“The essence of leadership is to drive initiatives that seek to build sustainable societies and make the lives of the people better and more meaningful.


“Every political leader should, in a moment of introspection, spare a thought for the legacy he or she would leave behind.

“Will you be remembered as a deceitful leader, an ethnic bigot, a religious fanatic or a nation builder that would leave lasting legacies for the people", he said.
