The 99 years old former United States of America, USA National Security Adviser and Secretary of State (1969 to 1976) Henry Kissinger is considered to be one of the most consequential political figures of our time and a colossus in the world of foreign affairs.
The renowned Kessinger has just written and published a book titled: ”Leadership: Six Studies in World Strategy.”
Kissinger’s book is a case study in a personal way, of the following leaders of significant countries around the world, whose leadership in their respective countries were epochal.
They are Konrad Adenauer of Germany, Charles de Gaulle of France, Richard Nixon of USA, Anwar Sadat of Egypt and Margaret Thatcher of UK as well as Lee Kuan Yew of Singapore.
Henry Kissinger in his compelling book, makes the case that “leaders think and act at the intersection of two axes: the first, between the past and the future; the second between the abiding values and aspirations of those they lead.”
He argued further that “They must balance what they know, which is necessarily drawn from the past, with what they intuit about the future, which is inherently conjectural and uncertain.”
Kissinger concluded that “It is this intuitive grasp of direction that enables leaders to set objectives and lay down a strategy.”
Also, basic economics tells us that the four components that determines the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) are; Personal consumption, Government spending, Business investment and net exports.
It’s a known fact that our people on the other side in Kwara lacks basic governmental strategy, tact and economics.
Weeks ago, the Kwara state government through one of the appointee on Community Intervention partnered with SEAP Microfinance Bank to doll out mini buses to, member of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) and Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN) through Use-Return-Own scheme.
The purchase, method and direct ownership doesn’t have the hand of the government, the role the government played is that of a guarantor, being an interface between the prospective owners and the investors.
It’s clear that oppositions who are desperate to go back to thier source of liquid, the rejected cash and carry government they ran that made Kwarans reject them are now complaining and castigating the government for taking that route.
It’s only an insensitive government like the one they ran that wouldn’t want to see an investment opportunity and not tap into it.
No amount of cheap blackmail and propaganda should derail the people centric government AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq is administering over in Kwara State.
