The distinction between rulers and leaders is important to understand since it is critical to comprehending modern society’s underlying issues, immorality and the burning desire by modern educated youths to move forward with accelerated speed.

Force isn’t required for good ideas. If leaders were truly out to helping us, they would not need to employ force or impose their will on us in the way that only rulers do. They would serve us if they were leaders, and we may refuse such service at any time and at will.

A Leader is someone who inspires passion and motivation in followers. A leader is someone with a vision and the path to realizing it. A leader is someone who ensures their team has support and tools to achieve their goals. A leader leads by example, setting the pace for constant Movement Forward. Great Leaders inspire CHANGE.

Throughout mankind’s history, majority of People have resented and feared change. During CHANGE, certain people lose control over their “traditional” tuff and roles. The larger the change, the more they are going to feel like the change is being done against them. No one likes feeling powerless. Many lofty and inspiring ideas have been fought to death by “Stakeholders” who prefer to entrench the status quo and hold sway.

Such is the magnitude of the challenges Governor Agbu Kefas is confronting, besides remnants of the old brigade who are still confused about where their loyalty lies exactly between service and stomach. The challenges becomes more magnified when you realise that the only business in Taraba State is Government business.

In other to truly liberate the state from the shackles of stagnation, underdevelopment and wanton mismanagement of resources, CHANGE ADVOCATES, particularly the Youths whom so much has been given by Governor Agbu Kefas’s administration, must bravely demonstrate capacity to stare the state in the direction the Young Governor has placed it.

Kidnapping for ransom around Jalingo the state capital, and other areas which has been a daily occurrence in the last 8 years has gone down by a remarkable record 98%.

Salary crisis that grounded the state in the last 8 years and sent many to their untimely graves has been reduced by 90%, it would have been 100% if it were not because of the state’s senior Civil servant’s deep love affair with GHOSTS. State civil servants who are actually GHOSTS have continued to enjoy lavish treatment at the detriment of hard working humans everywhere you go in Taraba State.
