The Lagos State Deputy Governor, Dr Obafemi Hamzat, has said the problem of the country is not only about leadership.

 Hamzat was quoted to have said this during the inauguration of the Quranic Central Mosque on Lagos Island, according to a statement on Monday.

The deputy governor urged the citizens to take personal responsibility in order to tackle the problems facing the country.

He said, “A lot of people are of the opinion that the problem of Nigeria is leadership. Well, l want to say that, it is not 100 per cent correct in my view.

“The problem is that the family has broken up and there is a lack of personal responsibility in the country. Many people have left their responsibility undone which is having negative effect on the society and country at large.

“I call on all citizens; irrespective of their religion, to take personal responsibility very important and play their roles effectively and efficiently, because leadership starts from the home which is the bedrock of any developed society.”

Prof. Tajudeen Gbadamosi, in his lecture at the event, implored parents to learn from the guidance of the Quran and follow the examples of the Prophets, who effectively guided their children to serve and worship God for heavenly rewards.
