NCPC Boss urges leaders to be steadfast, seeks unity in Northern region.
The Executive Secretary of the Nigeria Christian Pilgrims Commission (NCPA), Rev. Yakubu Pam, has urged leaders to remain steadfast in the service of the people.
Pam made the charge on Wednesday in Abuja when he received officials of the Jos Divisional Indigenous Cultural Organization (JODICA), saying that the people should also put leaders on check, to ensure attainment of set objectives.
He said that though sustainability is one of the greatest challenges in leadership, a steady focus on overall objectives would ensure success at all times.
Pam thanked the group for the visit and urged them to put the progress of the people above their personal interests.
“The role of a leader is a difficult one, as sometimes, you may be weak and sometimes strong, but the
people should always be there to put the leader in check and make him rise up to his responsibilities,” he added.
The NCPC boss pledged his support to the organisation and urged them to maintain the vision of the founding fathers.
“The vision of the people should be pursued; be focused to achieve it,” he told the delegation.
Earlier, leader of the group, Mr Aminu Zang, said those on the delegation are elders above the age of 70, and they have come to express their joy on the appointment of Pam as NCPC executive secretary.
“Knowing the pedigree and humble nature of the Executive Secretary, his appointment is well deserved,” he said.
Zang described Pam as a true man of the people and a leader that leads the people to the right direction.
“God doesn’t make mistakes. He looked at your track record and elevated you to this position.”
Mr Gini Umar, a member of the delegation, explained that JODICA has members in six local government areas of Plateau.
He pleaded with the executive secretary to help bring JODICO together again, adding that they have been divided for sometime.
Meanwhile, the executive secretary urged Christians in the North to unite and work towards building synergy and unity among all people of the region.
Pam made the call while receiving members of the Northern Nigeria Christian Politicians (NNCP) who paid him a courtesy visit on Wednesday in Abuja.
He expressed delight for the visit and pledged to give them maximum support.
“You need to actively mobilise Christians to come out and vote,” he added.
“It is time for the NNCP to be revived in its full glory,” he said, adding that he will mobilise top Christian leaders in the region to support the group.”
He emphasized the need to ensure that Northern Nigeria remains united.
“Build synergy between Christians in the North and rally round to ensure Northern Nigeria remains united,” he said.
Earlier, the National leader of NNCP, Mr Hassan Jonga, said the visit was to commiserate with the executive secretary on the loss of his mother, Ngo Zimi-Pam.
Jonga solicited the support of executive secretary to their founding vision and mission.
“It will be our desire to see that Christians in the North are not left out of the forthcoming elections and the contributions of prominent Christian political members are retained,” he added.
