Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Today, many leaders haven't understood the concept of stewardship.If stewardship is understood by most leaders , the problem of curruption and bad governance will become an issue of the past. What is stewardship then?

Historically, stewardship was the responsibility given to household servants to bring food and drink to a castle dining hall.The term was then expanded to indicate a household employee's responsibility for managing household or domestic affairs.Stewardship later became the responsibility for taking care of passenger's domestic needs on a ship, train and airplane, or managing the services provided to diners in a restaurant. The term continues to be used in these specific ways, but it is also used in a more general way to refer to a responsibility to take care of something owned by someone else. It is also doing something willingly without getting paid. Some religions consider humans to be stewards of the earth.(Reference:Stewardship-Wikipedia).

You would agree with me that about 90% of  African Leaders haven't understood the concept of stewardship yet.Instead of using the knowledge they have to empower the people, they use it to exploit the people. Instead of using the knowledge they have to serve the people they use it to oppress the people. They haven't understood that the office of the President is the authority, trust, and will of the people.You will find a President trying to modify the constitution to favour him increase his term of office , instead of seeking the common goal of the country.

If I have the opportunity to talk with Mr Gordon Brown (the former Prime Minister of Britain) , I would give him a very very very big applause.His attitude was "Heroic".

When the British election was over, the Labour party won 255 seats, the Conservative won 307 seats, the Liberal Democrats won 59 seats , and the others won 29 seats.This election reflected the will of the British people. In order to have a majority in the "HUNG" parliament (House of commons), the Labour party had to form a coalition with the Liberal democrats ,or otherwise the Conservative party form a coalition with the Liberal Democrats.In the UK , the majority must have atleast 326 seats in other to form a government. Mr Gordon Brown attempted forming a coalition with the Liberal Democrats but it didn't work.So the coalition was formed between the conservatives and the Liberal Democrats. Mr Gordon Brown knowing quite well that without the majority he can't form a government, tendered his resignation as Britain's Prime Minister to her majesty the Queen of Great Britain. Her Majesty accepted , then Mr David Cameron became Britain's new Prime Minister. What a "Heroic scene".

If a similar election like this one took place in Africa, it would have resulted to a "War."

In conclusion,most African Presidents should master and practice the concept of stewardship before running in for Presidential elections.This will make their subjects (the government they form) copy their good examples.

I have a proverb " When people vote a person as their President , the president's instruction will have weight". Also , "When the purpose of something is not known , abuse is inevitable".

Thanks, joint me on this topic "Stewardship".

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
