Nigeria’s problem is not just the leadership, personal responsibility is key- Obafemi Hamzat



Obafemi Hamzat

The Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Obafemi Hamzat, has said that Nigerians’ opinion that the country’s problem is 100 per cent the leadership, is incorrect.

Hamzat said the problem is that the family, which is the bedrock of any developed society, is broken causing lack of values and personal responsibility in the country.

The deputy governor said this over the weekend at the commissioning of the Ultra-Modern Quranic Central Mosque and Turbaning of Admiral Jubrila Ayinla and his wife, Alhaja Jemilah Ayinla, as the New Baba Adinni and Amira Tul-Mehmeen of Quranic Muslim Community respectively.

He said, “A lot of people are of the opinion that the problem of Nigeria is leadership. Well, l want to say that, it is not 100% correct in my view. The problem is that the family has broken up and there is a lack of personal responsibility in the country. Many people have left their responsibilities undone which is having negative effects on the society and country at large.”

He, therefore, called on all citizens, irrespective of their religion, to see personal responsibility as important and play their roles effectively and efficiently, adding that leadership starts from the home which is the bedrock of any developed society.

This is as he called on religious leaders in the state to focus their sermons on the importance of personal responsibility and family values in a bid to tackle the myriads of problems facing the country.
