'Garner respect'

Serafina Silaitoga

GOOD leaders do not demand acceptance through fear and violence or the barrel of the gun.

Instead, FWCC Co-ordinator Shamima Ali said good leaders garner respect and trust.

Encouraging students of Seaqaqa Central College during the prefects' induction this week, Ms Ali told prefects that good leaders used power to empower others.

"They empower the powerless and are inclusive and non-discriminatory.

"They have respect for women and girls and their policies, development issues and governance are inclusive of females," she said.

"They offer support and encouragement and keep communication lines open so that those who come under the leadership will feel free to share concerns and ideas.

"Through your moral strength you should be an inspiration motivating others to be good human beings."

Ms Ali said good human beings were compassionate and valued and respected others.

"Leadership demands great responsibility and accountability. It is about being consultative, submission to the rule of law and building democratic institutions.

"It's about leaving a positive legacy. These are ideals you must aspire to and see that you take it to the outside world.

"Shape your personality to take up future leadership in our beloved country."

Ms Ali told other students to assist the prefects as they also have studies to do.
