I know a good leader without seeing him
I identify him by his deeds, testimonies of his subjects even from his foes.
His choice of words are well fine tuned triggering metabolism in the hearts of men
An enigma this good leader is.
I know a good leader that’s a friend to all and sundry
In his duty, excellence is his watch word
In hospitality, perfection is his result
At the height of prejudice, he perseveres and his heart ,
a heart of basket harboring no evil but ever ready to serve.
I know a leader encompassing many positive shades in one.
This leader is a fine material
Beautifully crafted by God in His image
Perfect is the pattern yet lies some flaws in it.
This flaws drops seconds after seconds to make him the perfect pattern created by God
Ben Ujevbe , is the good leader I know.
Indeed, he is a man for the people.
This poem is dedicated to His Excellency , Benjamin Oke Ujevbe the outgoing Governor of Odili – PG UNN Hall(2019-2021)for a successful administration and being an examplary Leader.
