Anybody Can Become a Leader, Says Dr Oyedepo

The Chancellor and Chairman, Board of Regents, Covenant University, Dr David O. Oyedepo, has reiterated that anybody can be a leader provided the person is willing to fulfil the demands of leadership at the first Leadership Development Masterclass of the African Leadership Development Centre (ALDC) for 2021 held on Thursday, April 8, 2021.

While making his presentation at the masterclass, Dr Oyedepo said that out of his crave to see the black race acknowledged, he had developed several modules to make the black man realise that he was not inferior. He pointed out that the Masterclass was created out of the ingenious ALDC platform to exemplify that the challenges of the black race were surmountable.

Leadership, according to him, was not by occupying a position but by making outstanding contributions. “Many people today have high grades in school but can’t compete with artisans in the same field because they did not engage. Great leaders are not those with tens of degrees but those who change their world with the knowledge acquired,” he said.
