I have known Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah to be a refined CEO, WEALTH CREATOR and ENTREPRENUER who is characterized with EMPATHY, HUMILITY AND KINDNESS.
He is a leader who is satisfied when his wards are satisfied. A leader who can always get the job done, because leaders are known to produce results.
Just imagine a leader without EMPATHY, won’t he be a chaotic leader? Society probably wouldn’t survive his leadership.
Empathy is, at its simplest, awareness of the feelings and emotions of other people. For Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah, it is a key element of Emotional Intelligence, for it creates connection between him and people, by bringing them together and helping to forge friendships and love. Here is a man who would’nt like his ward to feel vulnerable and lonely. He is a man who believes that people must be informed and acumen be sharpened.
For him, being humble doesn’t mean being a chump. Using humility to be more effective has being his secret success. He is of school of thought that no one person has answers to all the problems, and that is why he is always open to all public opinion.
I have held discussions with him, i have followed his social media handles as he make out time to interact with his followers, and I have equally attended many of his media interactive sessions where he always seek input from public to ensure they have all the facts and are used in decision making. For Dr Ubah, he is a teacher and a listener too.
This is a kind of leader people want to work with, a leader who value people’s opinions rather than ignore or dismiss them. Effectively humble leaders like Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah are comfortable asking for input and can just as easily be decisive when the situation calls for it.
We are all aware that the world we are living today is an interconnected one, where everything we do affects other things. This is encouraging because it means that when you are kind, you are usually affecting more than the person right in front of you. Research proves that happiness raises nearly every administrative, managerial and business outcome: raising productivity by 31%, and accuracy on tasks by 19%, as well as a myriads of good health and quality of life by 37%.
For Dr Ubah, who understand an act of kindness is like a pebble dropped in a pond. Just as the pebble lifts lily pads at the other side of the pond, so an act of kindness lifts the person you help but also many of those connected to that person. As their own spirits are lifted, their behavior towards others is kinder too.
He has shown his kindness and support to all Anambrarian and beyond in one way or the the other, even during the fuel subsidy.
For Anambra politicians, its equally the time they all should rally around him and show him the equal kindness and support he once showed to them.
Is there any Anambra bigwig politician and political leader who have not benefited from Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah’s kindness?
And you as an individual,
Can you remember the last time someone showed you empathy? How did you feel? When someone makes you feel that you are valued and cared for, you likely feel good about yourself and then you are more likely to show that you care in return. This builds connections between people:
Its a cycle, thereby, we Ndi-Anambra have endorsed Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah to make Anambra State Great Again come March 2018 as INEC fixes November 18, 2017 for Gubernatorial Election where he would replace Gov. Willie M Obiano
I_am UBAHNIZED, HOPE YOU ARE TOO?
