Shadrack Ayelma explains rationale behind book “When the Honourable Becomes Vulnerable”

Author Shadrack Ayelma is challenging leaders in the country to use their positions to serve humanity and not lord their positions over people beneath their status. Mr. Ayelma posits that leaders would not remain in their positions, whether elected or appointed, forever and, as such, should be mindful of how they would be treated should they lose the positions they occupy.

He makes these points in his book titled ‘When the Honorable Becomes Vulnerable.’

Speaking on the Day Break Upper East Show today, Mr. Ayelma explained that his book explores the relationship between leaders and their followers and the dynamics that exist once the leader no longer remains in their position.

“Tomorrow, if you are no longer the occupant of the current position, what becomes of you? That is why I ask the question, what happens when the honorable becomes vulnerable.”

Mr. Ayelma, a teacher and a known political activist, wrote the book from the perspective of a non-politically aligned young activist. He said he used his vast experience working with young people across the country through the different groups and organizations he is a part of or has worked with.

“I put on the lens of a youth activist. I am with the Bolga Youth Parliament. I am the Minority leader. I am with NORPRA. I am with the Upper East Regional Youth Network. When you read it, whether as an NDC or as NPP person or even as a religious or traditional leader, the book would have an impact on your life and leadership style,” he said.

The author further argues in the book that while young people are constantly referred to as future leaders, they are not adequately equipped, groomed, or even allowed to lead, a situation he said has to change immediately.

He charged young people, through the book, to refuse to be used as tools for violence or mayhem and to build themselves and their capacities to take up leadership roles and challenge the status quo.
