Hon.Abayomi Sheba receives accolades for his leadership qualities. Leadership is one thing, being a leader with empathy, having the ability to understand the needs of others, and being aware of their feelings and thoughts is another. Unfortunately, most Nigerian leaders don't have that soft spot for the people they claim they represent or lead. In order to value the role empathy plays in leadership, we need to first have a clear knowledge of what empathy means. Some times, we tend to confuse empathy with sympathy. Empathy means being able to understand the needs of others. It means that you’re aware of their feelings and how it impacts their perception. It doesn’t mean you have to agree with how they see things; rather, being empathetic means that you’re willing and able to appreciate what the other person is going through. This is the true reflection of good leadership in any given society. Meanwhile women, youths and children in irele/ okitipupa Federal constituency have said that Hon.
