According to Linda Fisher Thornton, There are many important roles leaders play. The common thread through all of them is that leadership is about enabling the success of others. Leaders are supporters, developers, guides, team builders, and imaginers. They are culture caretakers, roadblock removers and inspirers. All of these roles require being other-focused. These qualities absolutely make popular Fuji Music Star, Alhaji Sulaimon Adio popularly known as Atawewe a great leader to reckon with, as he recently made a move to discover talents in Nigeria through sport activities.
Report reaching www.yorubamoviegist.com claimed that Adio, who is a diehard fan of Madrid FC in Spain, is warming up to host a Football competition for the underage youth in Ikorodu Area of Lagos State. It is called 1st Alhaji Sulaimon Adio Atawewe U-15 Gold Cup Tournament, which kicks off in May 22nd and ends on June 12, 2018 at Police Barracks, Igbogbo Road, Ikorodu, Lagos.
He made this announcement yesterday, Tuesday 15th May 2018 at a gathering in Ikorodu. According to him, “as the saying goes, the youth of any society/country is the future of tomorrow and therefore needs to be given the opportunity to showcase and harness their skills. Looking at the society today, you will discover that the youth are engaged in various ills and social vices like taking hard drugs, raping and all that. I have always and will continue to support any programme/events that will engage the youth and take them away from these social vices which have bedeviled our society and the nation at large. Ikorodu is very paramount to me because it is one of the places I grew up. That is why when I was called to sponsor the football tournament, I gladly accepted it. I did that to also dispel insinuation that I am a difficult and proud person”, he said.
