A union leader in Sabon Tasha GRA, Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State, Comrade Silas Adamu, has said that if he can clean governor Nasir El-Rufai hoes, iron his clothes to bring development to the area, he will do.
Elanza News reports that Adamu, who has just been elected president general of Sabon Tasha GRA Residents Association for a term of two years, is desperately looking for ways he can attract social amenities such as road and water to the area.
In his acceptance speech, Adamu said what they need in the GRA is all round development, vowing to do all within his ability to ensuring the achievement of his set target.
“A good leader is first a diplomat, and then a rascal. By my background coming from NLC, you don’t belong to any group. If it means me going to clean His Excellency, Governor Nasir el-Rufai’s shoes and ironing his clothes to bring development to the area, I will do it,” Adamu said while expressing his passion to get development for the GRA.
“Good leadership entails there is excellent followership. In providing excellent followership, all of us have made this epoch making event,” Adamu added while thanking the residents for the confidence placed in him.
“I will contribute my quota, believing it will spur everyone to contribute and make it progress,” he added.
Those elected and returned are Mr Atta Onoja as Vice President, Barrister Dan Paul Fredericks (Secretary General), Mr. Patrick Fuman (Assistant Secretary), Mr. Appolos Shinkut (Financial Secretary) and Mr. Silas Jonah as Treasurer.
