Of Vision and Visionary Leadership - By Reno Omokri

Article written by Reno Omokri, Special Assistant to the President on New Media and also a pastor. Read below and tell us what you think
One of the biggest misconceptions of the world, in my opinion, is the view held by some that members of the clergy should not participate in politics or government. 
I have read The Holy Bible and The Quran and to the best of my knowledge, nowhere in both books is such a notion promoted.
As a matter of fact, the first usage of the word 'government' comes from The Holy Bible and the United States of America lifted the word 'President' directly from The Bible book of Daniel (chapter 6 verse 3).

Some of the greatest figures in The Bible were prophets and political leaders at the same time. Joseph was Prime Minister of Egypt and political ruler of the then known world but he was also described as a prophet and diviner of God's will. 

Daniel was appointed President of Babylon by King Darius yet he continued to function in office as a judge and prophet. 

In the New Testament, Joseph of Arimathea was a counsellor (the equivalent of today's Senator) and he was a devotee of Our Lord and Saviour, Yeshu'a (whom some call Jesus). Likewise, the first African Christian, the Ethiopian Eunuch, was a high official in Queen Candace's government.

So, there is nothing wrong with men of God coming into politics. It is desired and it will help clean up politics. 

What is wrong however, is for men of God to come into politics and instead of being agents of transforming politics with the light of their moral compass, they end up conforming to the prevailing political culture such that you can not differentiate between them and a regular politician.

In The Bible, we read how an anointed man of God, a prophet by name Balaam, allowed his love for power and money mislead him into accepting to curse the anointed of God after he had been hired by King Balak of Moab to do just that.

Eventually, Balaam recognized the folly of his ways after an angelic visitation which prompted his donkey to speak to him. This divine visitation caused him to repudiate the lure of money and power dangled by King Balak to whom he uttered the now very famous words "How shall I curse, whom God hath not cursed?"-Numbers 23:8. 
 
 
It was this historical incident that came to my mind when I read Professor Yemi Osinbajo's words of condemnation on Twitter where he had said President Jonathan runs a "visionless" government. 

Professor Osinbajo is an ordained pastor as I am and one of the ethics of our calling, enshrined in the homiletic code, is that men of God should not criticize out of a desire for personal gain, but should do so advisedly and only if there are genuine and compelling reasons to do so. 

As a matter of fact, Philippians 2:3 says we should "do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves".

So let me ask, is it really true that President Jonathan runs a visionless government?

In fact, on a day that coincided with Professor Osinbajo's day of casting stones at President Jonathan, Bill Gates was celebrating Nigeria's ability to reduce incidences of the Wild Polio Virus from hundreds of cases just three years ago to only 6 cases in 2014.

Mr. Gates actions only corroborated those of the United Nations which earlier in the year had given President Jonathan an award celebrating Nigeria for eradicating the scourge of Guinea Worm infestation. 

The truth is that not only does President Jonathan run a purposeful and visionary government, one can even begin to see the crystallization of his vision into tangible benefits for the Nigerian masses.   

Professor Yemi Osinbajo is a pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God which has perhaps the largest indoor camp in West Africa along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway. 

Every year, millions of Nigerian parishioners of the RCCG troop to The Redemption Camp. They are faced with terrible traffic gridlock as the multitude try their best to get to the venue on time. The sheer number of users on that road overwhelms the capacity of the highway and members have been praying for an intervention that will ease their annual journey. 

Enter President Jonathan, whose vision prompted him to initiate the Lagos-Ibadan High Speed Railway which is underway. 

This service will not only facilitate the movement of RCCG's parishioners to The Redemption Camp thereby easing the pressure on the roads, it will also make it possible to live in Ibadan and work in Lagos, with stops along the way. 

The world renowned global consultancy, KPMG, which monitors trends, in November of 2014 included this High Speed Interstate Railway as one of the world's top 100 infrastructure projects. KPMG praised the Jonathan administration for its vision in initiating such a project. 

And it does not stop there. 

Even the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, long abandoned to the elements by previous administrations, is at the receiving end of some of the fastest construction work in Africa. Two construction firms are working to reconstruct the road in record time. Julius Berger is working from the Lagos end while RCC is working from the Ibadan end with the intention to meet somewhere in the middle so that the work is completed in record time. 

As I write this piece, the China Civil Engineering Construction Company, CCECC, has officially announced that it has rounded off the track laying work of Nigeria’s first standard gauge railway modernization project linking the capital city of Abuja and the Northwestern state of Kaduna.

This is another project that has come to reality as a result of the vision of President Goodluck Jonathan. 

So, when Professor Osinbajo describes President Jonathan's government as "visionless" it is obvious that he has left the objectivity of the pulpit for the subjectivity of partisan politics. 

Or else, how can any objective person call the man under whose guidance Nigeria became the largest economy in Africa and the 26th largest economy in the world, visionless? Is such a feat possible without vision, without planning, without discipline? 

Or was it President Jonathan's lack of vision that prompted the United Nations to release data that showed that under Jonathan's watch, Average Life Expectancy in Nigeria has risen from 47 years in 2009 to 52 years today?

Is President Jonathan "visionless" when all elections held under his watch have been adjudged credible and transparent. From Edo, to Anambra, to Ondo, to Ekiti to Osun and Niger, it has been a case of one man one vote, one woman one vote, one youth, one vote. 

A few Nigerians may not like the President's Transformation Agenda, but at least, all Nigerians have heard of it.

The million dollar question is who has heard of the agenda of Professor Osinbajo's party other than the use of the cliche 'change'?

Yes, Obama used the key words 'yes we can' to ride to power in 2008, but he had a brain Trust that came up with a plan. 

Are we meant to change for the sake of change? 

I must confess that I am personally fed up with politicians who speak negatively about Nigeria and its leaders just because they want power. 

Pastor Osinbajo regularly leads his congregation in prayers. But let me ask him if it makes any sense physically or spiritually to speak negatively about your nation and pray positively about yourself as if you can prosper in your home after cursing it with your mouth?

Nigerians expect Professor Osinbajo to wake up and smell the coffee and start telling them what he, his principal and their party plan for Nigeria and not to spend his time throwing stones at the innocent. 

Gone are the days when you promote a candidate based on his region and religion. And Nigerians are far too aware in 2014-5 for any politician to grandstand by using highfalutin empty words to cast aspersions on his/her opponent in order to hide the inadequacy of their vision and plans. 

I understand that when all you have is a hammer everything begins to look like a nail and so having nothing but criticism to dish out, Osinbajo is likely to keep throwing stones. However, seeing as he is a pastor, let me remind Professor Osinbajo of the immortal words of Jesus to critics in John 8:7-"he that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone".

As we approach 2015, I would like to point out something to Professor Osinbajo. 

In 2011, there were four major Presidential candidates: President Goodluck Jonathan of the PDP, Nuhu Ribadu of the ACN, Ibrahim Shekarau of the ANPP and Muhamaddu Buhari of the CPC.  

Does it not say much about President Jonathan's vision and his ability to communicate it effectively that of the three candidates who contested against him in 2011, two of them, Nuhu Ribadu and Ibrahim Shekarau, today share his vision for Nigeria and are helping him actualize it within the Peoples Democratic Party?

It says a lot about the President. And especially, it is evidence of the fact that President Jonathan is a man of vision.

Who knows, maybe Professor Osinbajo will see the light and come to appreciate the President's vision after the 2015 election. 

This has been a constant pattern with Buhari's running mates from 2007's Ume Ezeoke who saw enough reason to work with the PDP after that election, to Pastor Tunde Bakare, who shared and participated in the President's vision for a National Conference for Nigeria.

In conclusion, let me say that it is obvious to all discerning people that God has blessed this man from Otuoke known as President Goodluck Jonathan. Without godfather, without scheming, without over ambition, God divinely set him on a trajectory that has seen him ascend the highest office in the land. 

Even when power was within his grasp, the then Vice President Goodluck Jonathan refused to take it, preferring to wait on God to elevate him. 

I can say without a shadow of a doubt in my mind that God has put President Jonathan where he is. And until He is done with him, no man, no pastor, no prophet can curse whom God has not cursed.

Hahahhahhahaha i'm so luving the drama that's unfolding.I had to rush and check the defination of vision from my phone's dictionary.And i must say,Jonathan's admin is far from having any vision.He has the "vi" but not the "sion" coz he's running a short term govt as opposed to long.Where is the vi+sion when the leaders of tomorrow are in BH stronghold?Where is the vi+sion if by 2019 almost half of Nigeria's population is depleted from her map(God forbid)? Where is the vi+sion when looters and thiefs are being celebrated while honest Nigerian's are relegated? Where is the vi+sion when funds realized from the fuel subsidy are siphoned by thieves and on paraded before the hungry and toiling masses?where is the vi+sion when Nigerians can no longer protest without being harassed by the men in black?....Hehe this dark horse called Osibanjo may be the catalyst that will break the jinx of PDP.with every bashing,the man has emerged very popular,infact more than GMB himself.If i were GEJ,i'll tell my buldogs to lay off,restrategise and come up with a different version of No shoes story and then come out in full force.LOl Lol

Reno don't forget accountability. Where is the forensic report with the $20bn missing funds. Dissing out contracts and projects can be done by even the lamest government. Nig attained the economic position under the run of a genius CBN gov and a world high record in Oil prices. President GEJ is so weak in communication and has a record high level of corruption during his administration. He has sold most of the Nig assets but hasn't accounted for what the proceeds from the sale have been used for.

This Reno's speech is baseless and lacks wisdom. The same largest economy in Africa with the terrible devaluation of the naira daily, consistent expense from the national reserve, galloping rate of inflation etc. And yet u come and open that mouth of yours, we are tired of Lies and Deceit.

This is the most constructive, well mannered and matured response to criticism that I have ever come across in my entire life. It shows that indeed hope is not lost for Nigeria. I enjoin other political players to learn from this man. Though sometimes, I am not comfortable with Jonathan's style but his accommodating and enduring spirit which this author towed the path is unprecedented. Perhaps, it may be this virtue that opposition view as being clueless. If that is the definition of clueless I will prefer that our President will remain clueless for all I care.

Where did you keep your calling while indulging in the Windell Simlin drama to tarnish somebody's reputation through gross fabrication to the benefit of your employer? Can you give me a Summary of the trillions used for the extraordinary gigantuan projects you claimed was done by you Principal within those Over Sixty (60) months of his stewardship? Polio vaccines were sponsored by International donors. How many Nigerians lost there lives due to Vision-ful actions and Inactions of your Government? The President swore to uphold the constitution of Federal Republic of Nigeria and ensure it's territorial integrity only to keep acting otherwise. Once a candidate is elected, especially in the esteemed position of President, All citizens (as well as Foreigners with legitimate permits) are members of your constituency. Can you boast of this from our Commander-in-Chief? Hundreds of Nigerians would be massacred, but the C-in-C will look another way! What message are you sending to the people? The same C-in-C will rush to commiserate with an Individual that he considers his constituent. Vision and Visionary leaders tracends petty Ethnic and Tribal jingoism.

U mentioning railway... what else ...mad man.... why is this a project he is doing now just to campaign? U didn't talk about all the looting under is watch. He has 3 jets ..yet requesting for another in 2015 budget. Under his watch there is a JP Morgan account ..where oil proceeds go instead of the federation account. Has he fixed the power he promised. Crude oil has falling in world market. Gas price here in Canada from PMS has falling from $1.22 to 95cent. And this is how it is across all country. Has the fuel price changed in Nigeria gas station? ..PHCN never supply constant power yet they intend to increase tariff under his watch. Has he found the missing money? Oil subsidy scam is there. Boko haram is there. The truth is even Mr Buhari will find it hard to sort out Nigeria cause Niger Delta will frustrate is Gov. I just feel Nigeria needs someone who is firm and active and precise. ....Blackrock.tdot

This long epistle is coming from pastor Omokri aka Mr.Wendell? He didn't remember all these things he wrote when he was trying to blackmail former CBN governor Lamido Sanusi? Is it not this same Omokri that changed his name to Wendell Simlin just so he could write a false article he used to blackmail Sanusi? As usual, he has come out again to start playing "holier-than-thou".

Prof Osinbajo isn't the first to call GEJ visionless. Every person is entitled to his or her opinion, if you think I have defamed you or your administration, then sue me for libel and defamation of character.

Like someone rightly said above, there is a dictionary meaning of vision, and truth is GEJ's government does not have it. Or sorry, it does, and it is this: TO ENSURE JONATHAN'S RE-ELECTION IN 2015 AT ALL COST EVEN THOUGH HE ONCE SAID HE WON'T RE-CONTEST.

What bothers me having just returned from Kano is the fact that our president isn't truly a NIGERIAN president in the true sense of being the president of the whole country.

In fact, I am waiting for the day we will have a TRULY NIGERIAN president who will be leader, not just over the South or North alone. but over EVERY SINGLE CITIZEN OF NIGERIA!

siji olawumi said...

If in 6 years of being president we are still arguing whether you/your administration has vision, then it doesn't. I dare anyone who says GEJ has vision to enter Kano, or Lagos, or Akwa Ibom and ask for what has been accomplished by those Governors in 4 years. They will see for themselves what VISION can achieve in 4 years, not to talk of 6 or more years.

GEJ has been lucky we all know that, but look through all his luck from Bayelsa to Aso Rock, there is no trail of excellence or vision...except luck!

siji olawumi said...

We need change in Nigeria and ANYONE WHO IS NOT WILLING TO CHALLENGE THE STATUS QUO, INCLUDING THE POWERS THAT BE IN NIGERIA CANNOT AND WILL NOT BRING THE CHANGE NIGERIA NEEDS.

I hate to criticize, and those who knew me on facebook in 2011 know that I already predicted that GEJ and PDP WILL NOT AND CANNOT bring Nigeria the change we need (so forget sentiments). I will be a fool to now start arguing with anyone and say that I am disappointed GEJ hasn't done much, when I was not expecting anything.

If you don't have enemies you never stood up for anything. If you are afraid to die, you can’t make a lasting change. I reiterate, we need change in Nigeria and ANYONE WHO IS NOT WILLING TO CHALLENGE THE STATUS QUO INCLUDING POWERS THAT BE IN NIGERIA CANNOT AND WILL NOT BRING THE CHANGE NIGERIA NEEDS.

Linda on code supports the incumbent government. Always putting up that teams propaganda and criticism of the other team here. I would have said she's wise to do it so subtly but she has failed to play her role as an umpire on social, cultural and political issues which is sad looking at her readership. Linda has refused to take up the responsibility that comes with the power she has. I hope she realizes soon what she needs to do before it's too late.

You all should rest and allow God decide February 14th for us. But in my candid opinion Buhari is not the man for us, we don't need another war in this country. He should calm down and allow this county prosper..,, he has preached this blood bath he calls change for too long. I just pray he looses so you advocates of impure change can finally rest. But if he does win, I hope he wouldn't take us back to the dictatorial era, cod we really don't

GEJ may really have his own faults... but any objective and right thinking human being will realise that he is the only Nigerian President in recent history that has given our infrastructure a face lift. For Lagos/Ibadan and Sagamu/Benin roads alone, I cannot but give him kudos. For the first time in decades, Nigerians travelled for Christmas with little or no pains. Now, compare with his immediate predecessor... Obj was a lame duck in his first term. Given a second term, I see GEJ giving Nigeria a legacy of real transformation. I do not knw how going back to 1983 would do us any good...
