I have taken time to look into the life of Dr. Obiora Chira and his ideologies, then I realized that his personalities are built on Socrates dictum which says, “an unexamined life is not worth living”.
Now, the question is, what is an unexamined life? Is it the life that you live when people are monitoring and evaluating you? A right thinking person knows that it’s not such life. The examination in life is the evaluation of the present, past and the future.
“The decisions of what a person likes or dislikes, how he makes decisions to live their life or about life’s event and situations are all examinations of life.”
Dr. Chira is a personality whose life has been examined regarding his actions to the society, especially in key sectors in the society. There’s no gain pretending about it, he has proven to the Society that entrepreneurship is the roadmap to development. He understands that being an entrepreneur creates employment and reduces dependency on government.
This is the true quality of a leader. His examined life has guided his actions in the manner which he pilots his business activities.
This is a practical display of development for humanity, not in words. This is the type of leader we need; someone who creates jobs and engages the youths practically. That is the ideology he holds strong too. In the light of this recent development, this is the kind of man I will be glad to meet; this is the kind of man I will like to see as a legislator.
This is because from his actions, I have understood that he believes in the words of Mark Twain which says, “The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why”. The day Dr. Obiora Chira was born was the beginning of living life, and he grew up to examine his life, and discovered that he was born to set the pace in governance through grassroot job creation and development.
Indeed we will change the narrative together with Dr. Obiora Uzochukwu Chira.
