Globacom Ambassador, Sammie Okposo, is poised to give back. The singer has unveiled his NGO christened, Follow The Leader Organisation (FTLO). Commenting on the development, Okposo, in a chat with The Entertainer, lamented that Nigerians generally do not know what makes a good leader and consequently, they base their followership on ignorant populist sentiments.
According to him, to tackle the problem, what is needed is a distinct platform or movement which would be the vanguard of enlightenment and that is the vacuum FTLO will fill.
“Because of the high complexities of today’s societies, our world more than ever before needs a composite of noble and worthy qualities and values in the persons whom society entrusts leadership. Ironically, such leaders are very few around the world. And sadly, the few that exist may not be recognized by the majority of the people needing mentorship and leadership,” Okposo said.
FTLO is established upon the four cardinal principles of peace, unity, love and life and these values are the driving force behind FTLO.
Meanwhile, the multiple-award winning singer has released a new single entitledLet Peace Reign. Okposo says in the midst of violence, hatred and bloodshed, he want people to listen to the song and share his message of peace.
