    With all due respect to the many people who have had the privilege of serving Nigeria as president and so on,
    we really need to stop using the word ‘leaders’ for them. Not because they haven’t been leaders, a president is a leader,
    but because of how it ruins the word.
    People hear leader and immediately think president or federal government official, whereas in Nigeria today these are some of the worst examples of leaders. We have more leaders on the streets, on the internet, in real communities, and in our imagination than in Abuja.
    Please consider using the word more deliberately. Thank you.
