Former president Shehu Shagari says Adamu Muazu, ex-chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is a good leader who delivered his best for his people.
Shagari, who wrote the foreword of a publication titled ‘My Tenure Report’, said Muazu was responsive to the needs of his people at the most critical times.
“Leadership is a gift from God. It is also a challenge to men. In our country today, it is difficult to spot good and sincere leadership that is responsive to the yearnings and aspirations of the people,” Shagari wrote.
“Thus, when we identify a leader who appreciates the twin realities of being accountable before God and man, and demonstrates same in his carriage, comportment and service, we should encourage and support him.
“Ahmadu Adamu Mu’azu is a good leader. I saw in him the qualities of leadership. I believe Bauchi state will continue to reminisce on the fruits of his work.
“Of course politicians are entitled to their opinions on the assessment of leadership in Bauchi state. However, as one who knows how the wheels of government grind and has witnessed the performance of Ahmadu Adamu Mu’azu as governor, I can unequivocally say that he is a leader who delivered the best to his people at a most critical period.”
Mu’azu released the publication, which detailed his eight-year tenure as governor of Bauchi state, was released by Adamu on Friday, with no comments on the emergence of Ali Modu Sheriff as his successor.
In the report, Mu’azu said he had always believed that history would be written in the presence or absence of leadership.
“I have always believed that the best role in history is to leave a legacy for future generations…if leadership fails to deliver in history, it will be written out of it,” Mu’azu wrote.
