LAGOS - New Light Baptist Church (NLBC) has showered encomiums on the Former President and Chairman of Council, Chartered Institute of Personnel Management of Nigeria (CIPM), Mr. Victor Eburajolo as he retired from Kewalram-Chanrai Group as the Group Deputy Managing Director.

The Company is an over 110 years old conglomerate with interests in automobile, pharmaceuticals, agribusiness and agro-allied sectors.

At the retirement ceremony organised by New Light Baptist Church (NLBC) over the weekend, The Members of the Church described him as a leader with par excellence, God-fearing, humble personae, and extremely generous.

They said he is known for his ability to meander both at the top and bottom levels, adding that he could be provoked but anger does not last.

According to them, he made a success of the assignment given to him because of his antecedents and character.

On behalf of the family, Wife of the Celebrant, Mrs Eburajolo described her husband as wonderful and a great supporter of the family, saying that he does not want to see them in problems.

The Wife said he does not want to hear someone cannot go to school due to financial incapability.

"He is a wonderful husband, a wonderful dad to his children. He supports us very well.

"He does not want to see us in problems. He can be tough and harsh sometimes.

"He does not want to hear someone cannot go to school because he cannot pay school fees. He is nice. You have been a wonderful family." She said.

In his remarks, Mr Victor admonished Nigerian leaders to take their responsibilities more seriously.

The Former President explained that the country will be a better place if they prioritize responsibilities over powers to be amassed.

He also urged leaders to take people by the arm in order to bring about a generation of leaders.

While differentiating between the boss and leader, Eburajolo said the leader is more concerned about the success of his organisation, taking everybody together but the boss is more interested in his powers.

"If only those who are in positions of leadership now can take their responsibility more seriously than the powers they have, the country will be a better place.

"Let us take people by the arm to bring them up so that we can bring about the generation of leaders.

"I have tried to differentiate between the boss and the leader. The leader is more concerned about the success of his organisation, taking everybody together. But the boss is more interested in his powers, while the leader is more interested in his responsibilities." He said.
