Osun State On The Path To Glory | Opinions | National Trumpet

By Hon Rotimi Makinde 

Knowing what you want to accomplish with your leadership style is the first step to mastery.

The pilot of today is no doubt  Governor Adegboyega Oyetola. He is on the path of glory with this recent  Economic Summit which tells us how open minded he humbly wishes to run his government . He has called on the world and indeed every patriotic citizens and lovers of  progress in Osun State  to come forward and offer their wisdom and never  to hoard knowledge on how best to move the state forward economically.

To pretend or admit not to know is the beginning of wisdom.To have the courage and the sacrifice to openly seek people's contribution in any mission is one of  the strongest willingness to greater height.No one of course has the monopoly of knowledge. When we know we truly care to excell , when we know that a greater world of possibilities easily  shows up among several inteligent personalities, we must choose the path to assume we know less. 

Since we truly can not take care of everything or assume we are experts in  every subject and in all spheres, we can not know it all,to admit not to know it all  comes from patriotic sense of belonging with serious  determination to succeed..That is the merit in Alh Gboyega Oyetola's good gestures. He has openly sought from us what we have to let go, and what  we have to grab to ensure we maximize our potentiality.He seeks cooperation,he wants us to jettison hate and play less of politics on the state of affairs of our dear state. This is a commitment of someone who wants to succeed,the practice of the noble  and the choice of every great achiever who is set to further  empower the choice of his call to rule with diligence .Our attempt in designing our choices will naturally  give us the power to focus on action and impact..That is just the noble course of Gov Gboyega Oyetola as related to the organized Economic Summit .It can only get better.  

The willingness to change the narrative  of Osun state as a civil servant state or predominantly dependant state is evident in him as a governor and the amiable directing mind of the state. Osun must be great,Osun must be self reliant, self sufficient and Osun must be well positioned to  feed herself. That is the plain determination. 

The recent Economic summit is a pointer to that fact and definitely the right step of the governor and his newly constituted cabinet  in the right direction that can only move us forward as a state...It is clear that this is an effective and hard working governor and someone who sees this innitiave as a way to tell us how he sees collective responsibility as the only way to lead us to the glorious end we envisage.

The summit availed  us  of how 

best to develop the state economy, tap our  hidden and abundantly rich resources  and to monitor the progress that is being made in every sphere of government policies. 

The main focus of the Summit is the short ways to medium term policy direction,potential opportunity as opened to organization and individuals  while giving priority to the  interest in the context of the evolving global economy.It is interesting to note that a substantial proportion of the recommendations made by the participants started  from the era of the immediate past government which  have since become part of the state government's policies some of which have been adopted by the federal government.

This is another step in the right direction.

Osun a dara oo.
