When God lift you to a position of power and authority above many others, do not abuse the power. Do not be arrogant, rather remain humble. One of the politician I respect and regard so much in Nigeria politics is Gabriel Suswan, the former Governor of Benue State, North Central. My respect for him has nothing to do with politics. But because of his humble personality. He did something that was remarkable when he was a governor.
The former governor of Benue state, Gabriel Suswam once served as best man for a cook called Peter Anyiman at his wedding. Peter was a cook for a Catholic Priest in Benue. The governor observed Peter to be a man that has shown commitment in his work. And to honour him, he decided to be his bestman.
The presence of Suswan beside Peter on his wedding day will forever be remembered by him (Peter). Not many politicians could do what he did for a cook. The above event should teach anyone in a position of leadership to always be humble and regard others irrespective of their social status.
