Everybody defines leadership differently but I really appreciated the way John C Maxwell defines Leadership, in his Book titled “BE A PEOPLE PERSON (1989)”A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.”
Maxwell further added: Irrespective of how you define a leader, he or she can prove to be a difference maker between success and failure. A good leader has a futuristic vision and knows how to turn his ideas into real-world success stories.
In this article, it’s will be pertinent to take an in-depth look at some of the important leadership qualities and Visions of Ndiana-Abasi Udom that clearly separated him from others for House of Representatives Seat of Ukanafun / Oruk Anam Federal Constituency.

It’s actually seem that the 34th President of United States, Dwight D. Eisenhower really know Nana Udom when he posited this postulaton: “The supreme quality of leadership is unquestionably integrity. Without it, no real success is possible, no matter whether it is on a section gang, a football field, in an army, or in an office.”we all know the ethics of Banking sector, in which Honesty and Integrity is their core values. And as such, One should ask himself why Nana Udom has been successful in the Banking sector for the past One decade without Bad lebel on him, the unhesitation answer should be HONESTY AND INTEGRITY. Honesty and integrity are two important ingredients which make a good leader and as such, Nana Udom that we all know is always comfortable with Honesty and Integrity and with this attribute (Habit) that is very rare nowadays (esp. Among politicians) make him to be the Leading Aspirant and Unopposed Candidate for House of Representatives.
Let’s first and foremost explore what Nana Udom and his family has been able to achieved through their private capacities
♥ Building of a World class, the best planned, the best layout, the best equipped and the first approved/licensed private Polytechnic in the whole of former Abak Division (Abak, Etim Ekpo, Ika, Ukànàfun and Oruk-Anam LGAs).

With all the aforementioned, sealed that Ndiana-Abasi Udom has a divine mandate to continue from where him and his family has stopped so far in the development of Ukànàfun and Oruk-Anam LGAs.
● PERFECT COMMUNICATOR
Legislative Business need people who can Communicate, Speak and Talk. When you want an Eloquent Speaker, Someone that can vibrate and giner intellectually applied with wisdom, please contact NDIANA-ABASI UDOM. With Nana Udom, Ukanafun Federal Constituency will be fully hear and recognize internationally. For the past few months, he has clearly communicated his Visions to his People and there have accepted him wholeheatedly.
According to Maxwell, A good communicator can is a good Leader, and as such, NDIANA-ABASI UDOM is not a surprise to us. He further addded, Words have the power to motivate people and make them do the unthinkable, If you use them effectively, you can also achieve better results. Ukanafun / Oruk Federal is on his Pace to Greatness courtesy of Nana Udom.
For the past few years, as a Relationship Manager in UBA, his confidence in somes critically decisions in the Bank has awarded him with thousands of Awards and as such, maximized the growth of his Bank, that is why UBA Especially doesn’t want to lose him.
When it’s come to legislative business, it’s has much to do with intellectual, wisdom and critical decisions with full confidence of it’s outcome to be positive. To be an effective leader, you should be confident enough to ensure that other follow your commands.
If you are unsure about your own decisions and qualities, then your subordinates will never follow you. As a leader, you have to be oozing with confidence, show some swagger and assertiveness to gain the respect of your subordinates.
● INSPIRE OTHERS
Probably the most difficult job for a leader is to persuade others to follow. It can only be possible if you inspire your followers by setting a good example. Ndiana-Abasi Udom is very suitable case study: some few months ago, when he made his ambition known to his people, there was no hesitation by the (People) masses whether to support him or not.
But rather, Everyone took it’s as their personal life to ensure Nana Udom victory, there took it as their lives depends on his victory. According to my findings, Out of 100% of Ukanafun / Oruk Anam People, 95% had endorsed Nana Udom, many doesn’t even know Nana Udom in person but only heard about his good deed and there are motivated and inspired by that alone.
Others supported him because of what his Family has done so far for the development of ukanafun while optimistic that others are coming when Nana Udom become our MP. Wow, this Young Man is endorsed by God.
As a leader, Nana Udom is always positive and this positive approach of his has always been visible through his humanitarian services and education empowerment especially Students across the State.
As John Quincy Adams puts it, “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a Leader.” Nana has inspired millions of Youth across Akwa Ibom State. He is a Mentor to Thousands, Role Model to Millions.
Then ask Yourself, if this Man become our MP, what do you think will happen to Ukanafun Federal Constituency? Brethren only God knows, because I’m optimistic that Ukanafun / Oruk Anam will be Great Once again from 2019 and above.
