A bad military administration is worse than a raging, uncontrollable mob and an armed robber. In politics, he destroys and kills and guards himself with his arms.

The true definition of a community leader is spelt below; we have them in our streets, villages, schools, offices, communities, all over the world. They know how to move things and get things done ironically they are never given the chance.

In the context of the present political structure in Nigeria basically these individuals are shielded from achieving or gaining National relevance for lack of God-fathers and sponsors.  This practice can only be destroyed and eliminated from our society when you decide to stand behind them; arisenigeria will give them all the necessary support that will make the Nigerian Dream realizable. These are the people who are making the society and communities function; they are the Dream leaders or Champions of our communities. If there is anyone in your community; man, woman, boy, girl or responsible adult that meets the qualities of the Dream Leader, see below, send their profile.
