Great leaders come from all walks of life.
Seldom do they follow some predetermined paths to leadership while a few of them may have been “born leaders”.

In most cases great leaders weren’t even picked to be “Most Likely to Succeed” in their incubating years in life.

Almost all successful leaders overcome obstacles and failures along the way. For many, that’s what defines their leadership style and drives them.

When people talk about leadership, their focus is most often on others as to how leaders serve them, empower them and motivate them, and we quite believe Chief (Barr) Felix Omi Imoisili who is the current General Secretary of PDP Edo State chapter has all these attributes of the leader described above and will do better if he succeeds the outgoing Chairman, because he has all the required experience having worked with the state exco team from 2016 till date.
