“Leadership is not about a title or a designation. It’s about impact, influence and inspiration. Impact involves getting results, influence is about spreading the passion you have for your work, and you have to inspire team-mates and customers.”– Robin S. Sharma
The above words of Robin S. Sharma captures the leadership mentality, grace and skills of the outgoing MMU National President, Hon. Dr. Dawari George who doubles as the current President of the All Africa Baptist Men” s Fellowship (AABMF). The one-time Marshal, Royal Ambassadors of Nigeria could simply be described as a man with Midas touch as God has granted him a special anointing for success, landmark achievements and record-breaking achievements. For these and many more, he deserves our celebration.
Hon. Dr Dawari Ibietela George who was once a member of the House of Representatives has distinguished himself as a politician of note with great considerable influence whose political life has brought glory to the church of God here in Nigeria and beyond. He is certainly an example and model of a Christian politician. I have no doubt in my mind to submit with all honesty that Nigeria needs people like Dawari George in the governance of this nation. I see you occupying more grounds like Joshua did during his time. Press on as God is on your side.
By this brief submission, I intend not to do a catalogue of your achievements and things God has done through your inspirational leadership of the men and boys of the Nigerian Baptist Convention as National President from August 2012-2018 but to CELEBRATE GOD IN YOUR LIFE AND LEADERSHIP for what you have allowed yourself to be used of and for by God.
Your life has inspired me. Your leadership discovered me and established me .You have motivated many of us into becoming good men, fathers and leaders. Your ability to drive one for success is unique. Your passion for success through team work is second to none. Your all inclusive leadership style is simply wonderful. You are a model of a perfect leader and mentor. Your ability to correct for the purpose of bringing out the best in a man is incomparable while your grace for tolerance is God given. I can continue unabated.
Today, I celebrate the fulfillment of Proverbs 22:29 in your life. It says “Do you see someone skilled in their work? They will serve before kings; they will not serve before officials of low rank.” (NIV ). You are therefore standing before the people that matters for celebration of your good works . The people of God celebrates you. The Boys of the Nigerian Baptist Convention and Africa celebrate you. The men of our great Baptist Convention here in Nigeria and Africa glorify God in your life. The entire Nigerian Baptist Convention, the AABMF, the All Africa Baptist Fellowship and indeed the Baptist World Alliance are all sure proud of you. As you rotate out of office as the MMU National President (to concentrate on your continental and international assignment without neglecting your ex-officio status in the MMU NEC) , I give you Baptist Hymn 319 (Higher Ground) and hand you over to the wonder working God for Him to move you FROM GLORY TO GLORY
On behalf of the Royal Ambassadors of Nigeria, I celebrate God in your life and thank God for bringing me in contact with you through the Royal Ambassadors Ministry of Reconciliation. God be with you, sir, as you journey on in life. You are not there yet. You shall sure be there in Jesus name.
