Hon. Yakubu Dogara, a former Speaker of the House of Representatives, at a symposium themed, “The Future of Leadership: The Role of the Youth,” held in Abuja on Wednesday complained that the Nigeria education system wasn’t put in place to train leaders but workers.

Lead Generation Initiative (LGI), a non-governmental who is said to be committed to campaigning, training and empowering young Nigerians across the nation, for nation building and community development, had put the event together to commemorate it’s first it’s first anniversary.



The former lawmaker said, “The problem I have seen is that leadership does not have futoes; leadership; there is no known rational process of processing the character of those we want to put in position of authority. Before we put a person in a leadership position, what comes to our mind is, is he loyal rather than is the person capable of doing the work? This triumph of loyalty over competence and the loyalty we talk about in Nigeria is actually sycophancy.

“Remodelling our education system to prioritise innovations and training of leaders who can actually serve as agents for social change and actual development.”
