How to Find Certainty in Uncertainty, tells us, In addition to the responsibility of making difficult decisions every day, there is another critical component that a leader’s thinking pervades, namely something.

That he or she can’t help but ask themselves from time to time: What will my leadership legacy be?

Essentially, a legacy is something valuable, a goal or mission that a leader would like to remember long after they leave office.

How will Buhari be remembered for handing over power to Bola Tinubu on May 29, 2023?

While a leader’s legacy is meant to be a by-product of carefully considered historical decisions based on personal values, this is not always the case.

Nelson Mandela became almost a living political saint, not through a “solid” performance as South Africa’s president, but through the mere decision to forgive those who imprisoned him for 27 years (an act that initially enraged many black South Africans); Goodluck Jonathan became larger than life for conceding defeat to Buhari after losing the 2015 presidential election; and Obasanjo became a global statesman upon his first inauguration as military head of state simply because he handed power to elected civilians at a time when such an act was a rarity in Africa.

Political leaders sometimes venture into projects like building airports and universities in hopes of being remembered for such projects.
