A POETIC TRIBUTE TO ALHAJI LATEEF KAYODE JAKANDE

THE S.E.A.L Of GOOD GOVERNANCE

SOLIDARITY:

EVERY LEADER MUST REALIZE

HIS EGO’S POCKET MUST NEVER BE OVERSIZE,

MUST VIEW THE WORLD THROUGH HUMBLE EYES,

THAT’S THE ONLY WAY TO ATTAIN FULFILLMENTS PRIZE!

EMPATHY:

THE ONLY WAY THE DRUMS OF PROGRESS CAN RESOUND,

IS WHEN LEADERS AND THE LED WALK ON EVEN GROUNDS,

WHEN THE DRIVE OF OUR LEADERS, IN EMPATHY ABOUND,

IN-DEPTH DEVELOPMENT IS WHAT WILL BE FOUND!

ACCOUNTABILITY:
TRANSPARENCY IS THE BACKBONE OF TRUE LEADERSHIP,

HAVING NOTHING TO UNDER THE CARPET SWEEP,

WHEN THERE’S NO IMPUNITY SEPARATE FROM THE FOLLOWERSHIP,

EVIDENTIAL PROGRESS WILL BE HEAP ON HEAP!

LOYALTY:

BOUND BY THE CONVICTION TO SERVE,

AND NOT TO SIPHONE WEALTH TO AN UNJUST RESERVE,

THIS ERADICATES POVERTY AND WILL PROSPERITY PRESERVE,

THESE QUALITIES OF GOVERNANCE ARE WHAT NIGERIANS AND AFRICANS DESERVE!

ACROSTIC

J- JUSTICE EMULATION WORTHY WAS WHAT HE EXERCISED

A-ADVOCACY THAT COULD NEVER BE COMMONISED

K-KINDNESS THE BEDROCK UPON WHICH HIS ACTS WERE EMBEDDED

A-ACCOUNTABILITY, THE FOUNDATION IN WHICH HIS POLICIES WERE CONSTRUCTED

N-NEPOTISM A FAR-CRY FROM HIS WELL BALANCED MIND

D-DEVOTION TO HIS PEOPLES WELFARE MADE HIM ONE OF A KIND

E-EMPOWERED THE POOR TO PURPOSE AND RELEVANCE FIND

LAGOS STATE UNIVERSITY, OJO, FREE EDUCATION, LOW COST HOUSES, VIABLE ROAD NETWORK, ACCESSIBLE HEALTHCARE , THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF JOURNALISM AND A WHOLE LOT MORE I CANNOT FOR TIME MAKE MENTION, HIS POLICIES WERE WELFARE DRIVEN, HE WAS THE SERVANT-LEADER

BABA KEKERE, AS YOU WERE FONDLY CALLED, YOU MAY BE DEAD BUT YOU REMAIN UNBURIED, YOUR GOOD WORKS REMAIN INDELIBLE IN OUR HEARTS AND ENVIRONMENT.
REST IN PEACE…
