The Benue State Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Mrs. Ngunan Addingi has said that leadership is servitude, and those who do not intend to serve should not seek to occupy positions.
Mrs. Addingi said this in an exclusive chat with TheFact Nigeria on Sunday after her emergence as the Vice President of her alma mater, the prestigious Bristow Alumni Association, (BAA).
TheFact Nigeria gathered that the elections were held on Saturday as high point of events at the BAA annual convention which held at the William Muckle Bristow (W. M. Bristow) Secondary School in Gboko, Benue State.
Mrs. Addingi said: “Leadership is Servitude. My take on leadership is that if you do not intend to serve then do not take a dive into leadership.
“The idea that people take leadership positions for personal gain is an error.”
While speaking on behalf of the new exco, the Commissioner said: “We are grateful to God for the opportunity to serve and we are willing to be mentored by the BOT, the college of past Presidents and the members.
“Our desire is to make BAA the foremost Alma mater that is focused on development of the school and the students.
“We desire collaborative partnership that would make us receptive to world class education.We cannot do it alone and so we extend our hand of friendship to all .
“While praying for wisdom to mane the affairs of BAA, we desire that we all continue to be the ‘Light of the World’.”
Mrs. Addingi was elected to deputize Mr. Manasseh Denga who takes over from Engr. Ben Akaakar as the President of the Association.
The duo were elected along with six other key officials.
