He expressed these views while speaking at a launching ceremony of CEO Club here on Friday at a local hotel.
He said that poverty can be eliminated from society rapidly if a small section of the country commits to share their resources with financially abused people.
Former Minister Ahsan Iqbal said that wearing expensive clothes, speaking foreign languages and leading comfortable life is not meant that such a person has had leadership qualities.
Rather those who have substance and courage to deliver to common people can be called leaders of the nation, though they used to wear regular clothes and lead simple life.
He further said that Malaysia’s Mahatir Mohammad did not become a world level leader within short time, rather he served his nation while keeping different governmental portfolios for a long time. After decades of experiences, he could put his country on the path of progress and prosperity, he added. He also lauded the leadership qualities of Turkey’s premiers. He also stressed the CEOs of the country to follow the footsteps of Last Prophet Mohammad (PBUH), if they really want to serve the country and humanity.
Wali Zahid, CEO SkillCity, and Faiez H. Seyal Managing Associate Ace Consulting Group also spoke on the occasion. Ijaz Nisar Founder and President Manager Today while delivering welcoming address said that CEO Club would set a trend of learn, earn and return together to the country.
He further said that CEO Club is dedicated to Pakistan’s CEO’s local business leaders, entrepreneurs, difference makers and women of substance for creating empowering environment to perk up the quality of life of people, society and country through shared vision and synergy. He then closed the ceremony with Vote of Thanks
