Aristotle once said that all human actions that are aimed at gladness and cheerfulness should be geared towards a life of virtue. If we accept this starting point of Aristotelian ethics, the next question that should automatically be asked is: how do we learn to become virtuous men and women? In answering this question we should be able to make out the distinction between intellectual virtues, such as practical wisdom, and moral virtues, such as courage, generosity, and the like. Intellectual virtues is acquired by education; moral virtues by habit. This is so because people with conscience and character are affinity for excellence or virtue and they that love what is noble and feels disgust at what is base. They are commonly the locomotives of society.
Since Life as widely acclaimed is a combination of ups and downs, trials and tribulations, great men and women always look beyond these obstacles to emerge. Doumana Louis Roger is the Regional Delegate of Transport for the North West Region. The most interesting thing about this lively young man is that he looks beyond the orb that appears to be the end of the world to see other opportunities that nobody imagines can exist.
Last month Doumana Louis Roger received two distinctive from two different structures for his trappings at the helm of North West Regional Delegation of Transport. Having proven his worth in developing expansionism trenches within the transport sector, everything seems to come naturally. On August 31, 2015, The Eye Newspaper honoured Doumana Louis Roger as Best Regional Delegate.
Aristotle in the idea of virtue ethics also states that society relies substantially on the effects role models. Aristotle believes that we learn to be moral (virtuous) by modeling the behavior of moral people. Through continual modeling we become virtuous out of habit. Of course, people can learn both good and bad habits depending on the role models they have. Aristotle believed that it was the moral duty of every citizen to act as a good role model. This is especially true for people who are most likely to be in the public eye, since these people had so many eyes on them. Who are the role models in contemporary society? When asked, many youths state that they want to be like their role models. Aristotle would argue that this is not a choice a person can make. Since these people are so prominent in our society they are role models and should take this responsibility seriously.
Doumana Louis Roger is a role model and he worked hard in the year 2014/2015 to the point that his exemplary successes also caught the admiration of a USA based organization to the point that he was honoured with another award. This is so because Doumana just decided to mark out transparent management as precedence of priority. He has transformed the once dormant and corrupt sector to a beehive of activities. Transparency is the key in the issuance of driving licenses in the North West Region. Meet him in the field carrying the routine checks and you would agree with this reporter that the man doesn’t only sit and dish out instructions but follows up in the field to demonstrate. Since he became Regional Delegate, the numbers of accidents in the region have reduced considerable. Doumana’s success story is similar to that of William Still who as a young boy helped a slave to escape. And over his lifetime, he went on to help as many as 800 more slaves escape to their freedom. To say that Doumana has rescued the population from the pangs of useless drivers is to use one of the weakest diction ever to describe the work of a workaholic. But to say he has rescued the population from the pangs of useless driver and holders of fake drivers’ licenses makes his actions to similar to those of William Still.
Seemingly, these fascinating acts of transforming, acting and realizing positive multiplier upshot are gifted.
This is because with talent one can make things happen to the very essence of the general good. Nevertheless, innovation distinguishes between a great administrator and a charlatan. But unlike ordinary visionaries who see far and remain on the spot, Doumana does not wait on the spot to be told, he goes for everything that can make the transport sector look better. He has eradicated corruption in the transport sector. That is why as a youth he is succeeding where others have fumbled, stumbled and tumbled over.
Rudyard Kipling, one of the finest English writers once said that “if you can keep your head when all around you are losing theirs and if you can meet with triumph and disaster and treat the two the same, yours is earth and everything that is in it”. This is a straightforward reality and in fact there is no doubt that Rudyard Kipling had this inspiration from the obstacles and barriers we often crush to get to prominence. In our contemporary society this statement could only be referred to one person, Doumana Louis Roger.
What is important about this award winning dynamic young man is that he is inventive, down to earth and fertile in expedients. When you meet him for the first time, you are attracted by his elegance and simplicity.
John Quincy Adams confirms it that if your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader. Doumana is not just a self-motivated person in charge but an administrator with incomparable management qualities (leader). In getting to where he is today and especially being voted as Best Regional Delegate of The Year at his age, he toiled laboriously to transform lives. That is why today he is building common frontiers for all segments of society. In doing this, he followed the principle outlined by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow that ‘heights by great “men” reached and kept were not obtained by sudden flight but, while their companies slept, they were toiling upward in the night’ burning the midnight candle to change lives around.
