According to Lamido, for leadership to be accepted, it must be genuine, sincere and have honest leaders. “Leadership must be genuine, sincere and also have honest leaders. Leaders who believe that leadership, there is what we call responsibility; what we call transparency and what we call .

“It is because we share these aspirations that we are united; so much that no matter what, no matter the level of intimidation or sponsored articles to harass us or blackmail us, we will stand truth,” he stressed.

Lamido further said that the ownership of the governments must be the people, who entrust leadership to the leaders. “To us, leadership is a trust bestowed by God. The government we lead is owned people. We, as governors, are so honoured and privileged to serve own people. As I can see today Sokoto, people here own their government and because they own it, they can defend it anywhere,” he said.
