I present to you a president so humbled in governance, it was a surprise to me when i came across his story that i could not help but write about him for everyone to learn from him...especially the leaders of my country, Nigeria.

President of Uruguay, José Mujica is a living proof of humility in service – a beacon of hope that indeed, leadership is still all about service to the people not self. President José Mujica is getting world wide recognition and respect for donating 90 percent (not slashing ‘25%’) of his earnings to charitable causes.
The President said in a recent interview that the only big item he owns is his Volkswagen Beetle car, valued at $1,945 dollars (about N308,283). He earns a salary of $12,500 a month (N1,981,250), but only keeps $1,250(N198,125) for himself, donating the rest to charity.

I wont be negative about my leaders because their wealth is always thrown at the faces of the poor masses through their houses, cars, businesses and other flamboyant lifestyles which has extended to our so called celebrities who benefit from their wealth and then hide under the umbrella of public relation.

The people wail everyday for just a meal in the morning or before going to bed, and thats if the landlord is not making a scene about their house much is happening in Nigeria but we are just a people who hang on grace due to our socio-religious background...and that is even suffering right now.

Anyways, please take a cue from this humble man...
