LAGOS State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has blamed inadequate leadership training for the nation’s socio-political challenges.
Chairman of the state CAN, Apostle Alexander Bamgbola said this while addressing participants at a Leadership Workshop for State and Local Government Christian Leaders in Lagos.
Bamgbola expressed dismay over the absence of training and retraining programmes in several sectors of the nation which, he said, had over the years undermined Nigeria’s development.
Delivering his paper titled: “Stewardship in Christian Leadership”, the cleric said the need for workshops for political and religious leaders could not be over-emphasized as the country is in dire need of faithful, committed, knowledgeable and visionary leaders who will take the country to its promised land.
Bamgbola also urged Christian clerics to understand that as stewards, they must use the resources entrusted to them to give better quality of life to mankind.
