Buganda: The Second Vice-Chancellor and Treasurer of the State, Robert Wagwa Nsibirwa, urged parents to pay more attention to educating their children so that they can become good leaders who will save the world in the future.
He was speaking at the inaugural graduation ceremony of the American Leadership Academy in Lubaga yesterday morning.
The Wagwa said he found that the biggest challenges facing us here in the country are those related to leadership and perceptions.
He said our leaders, especially in rural areas, focus more on getting money and forget to guide people on issues that help them, such as health care, hygiene and the environment.
He added that our leaders in political offices, on the other hand, focus more on how they serve in office and fail to guide and guide people on the right issues that should help them.
He urged parents to be directly involved in the task of educating their children properly, learning to work together and leading their peers instead of intimidating them when all the household chores are done by domestic workers.
The American Leadership Academy was founded by Mr David Ssejinja and Ms Miria Bukirwa with the aim of training students in leadership issues. Today 51 students graduated who were well-trained in leadership skills.
The Nsibirwa thanked the founders of the institute for their vision and establishment, especially at a time when the country needs good leaders with integrity.
He urged the graduates to use the skills and techniques they have gained at the institute to help people face challenges, develop themselves, and be role models for their fellow youths without denying jobs.
Katie Lowe, Vice-Chancellor of the College, congratulated the graduates on their skills and urged them to stand out with confidence, welcome the ministry that comes with leadership, avoid pride, let them be blessed, and lead people with humanity.
The Vice-Chancellor of Ndejje University, Prof. Eriabu Lugujjo, thanked the founders of the institute and urged the youth to adopt it as they can study wherever they are using technology.
He urged the university’s California partners to continue to provide Ndejje University with courses and to set up an office and a website that will greatly benefit the university.
