CONGRATULATIONS, KUDOS TO HON. WAHAB WALIU ADETUNJI ( WABKEM), THE NEWLY ELECTED EXECUTUVE CHAIRMAN OF ATIBA LOCAL GOVERNMENT : A GREAT LEADER WHO ACTS WITH HUMANITY.......Compassion is not a virtue, it’s a commitment. It’s not something we have or don’t have, it’s something we choose to practice.”– Brené Brown.

Humanity has long been considered an important trait for leaders, and in recent years this character dimension has also become increasingly valued in politics or workplace..

 Humanity involves showing genuine concern for others by paying attention to — and appreciating — their values, feelings, and beliefs. 

To appreciate the benefits of humanity, it can be helpful to consider the impact its absence often has. When there is a lack of understanding and care for others, people may fear bringing up issues and ideas. 

This results in a stifling of innovation and psychological safety. Humane, compassionate leadership is beneficial for leaders as well as their followers.

 Honourable Wahab Waliu Adetunji , the newly elected Executive Chairman of Atiba Local Government in Oyo State is one of those  compassionate leaders that have been consistently  maintaining  healthy relationships and successful in pursuit of their goals.

His employees report him as being satisfied and engaged with their jobs, and are less likely to experience burnout. 

Hon. Adetunji's humanity is demonstrated via empathy, generosity, and forgiveness.

The people of the local government area are  feeling understood and appreciated. 

He is patient with people who need extra help, and do give them help.

Hon. Adetunji is really listening . He demonstrates care for others by actively listening to what they have to say, and make sure to confirm his understanding before he  responds.

 Listening is critical for productive relationships, negotiations, and conflict resolution. 

Wabkem knows that when  he listens to others and makes space for them to share their thoughts, feelings, and ideas, he is also showing generosity by giving others his time and attention.

Everyone makes mistakes from time to time. But Hon. Adetunji do not overlook these mistakes, but rather sees it as learning opportunities, and practice forgiving himself and others. 

He focuses  on what he learnt, what went wrong, and how he can adapt to improve future outcomes.

 By demonstrating compassion and understanding when things go wrong — for himself and others, Wabkem has helped in  creating  a forum or platform where people feel safe to admit faults and try new things, both of which are key components of psychological safety and can lead to increased creativity. 

On behalf of the good people of Atiba local government areas , congratulations to the people's choice, hope and reformer .
