Great leaders are celebrated because while they lived and they made the well-being of those they led the centre of their policies. As a result, they succeed in leaving memories of their good deeds in the hearts of the people.
Even in death, they are never forgotten and live on in the minds of the people.
Leaders, such as Dr Samuel Ogbemudia, Prof Ambrose Alli and many others are still remembered and respected till date because of the good work they left behind. Their memories are preserved by the people and will continue to be treated that way for many years to come.
Nobody or government can embarrass a responsible leader. What is happening to Comrade Adams Oshiomhole in Edo state at the moment should be food for thought for all.
