President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (NAN), Samson Ayokunle, says individuals desperate for high offices are more interested in the benefits.
He spoke on Thursday at the Thanksgiving Service in honour of Yakubu Pam, new Executive Secretary, Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC).
Ayokunle noted that wise people do not rush to take up leadership positions because of the burden.
The CAN leader noted that most times, many focus on the paraphernalia of office, accept appointment and fail.
”If you see somebody doing all he can to occupy a position, know that he or she is either looking for self glory or what he or she would benefit from it, not what he or she would offer”, NAN quoted him as saying.
“We know that without your own effort God put you in this position because you did not lobby for it. We urge you to do your best without disappointing God nor those who put you in this position. May the Lord help you,” he said.
