Top diplomats including the British Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr. Paul Arkwright are set to participate in the 2ND Annual SAFFGLIA African Leadership Lecture to be delivered by Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State at the Centre of Excellence Hall, University of Lagos on Thursday, December 7, 2017 by 10.30AM.

 

The theme of the lecture where Lagos State Governor, Akinwumi Ambode will be a Guest of Honour is, ‘The Youth and the Challenge of Bridging Credible Leadership Gap in Africa’.

 

Discussants at the lecture which will also attract top chief executives of public and private organisations, legislators  and media chiefs  include Mr Adetokunbo Mumuni, Executive Director, Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP); Barrister Jide Ologun, former Chairman, Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR), Lagos and Lead Convener of Great Leadership Attitude Development (GLAD); Mr Omololu Ogunmade, a Public Speaker and author of ‘MindShift’; Mr Dotun Ladipo, Publisher, The Eagle Online and President, GOCOP,  among others.

Segun Adeleye Foundation For Good Leadership In Africa (www.saffglia.org) was founded by Mr Segun Adeleye, a journalist/media entrepreneur, author and operator of WorldStage Newsonline (www.worldstagegroup.com) to carry out activities and projects that will encourage/compel governments across Africa to embrace good leadership in order to uplift the standard of living of the people.

The foundation was officially inaugurated on March 10, 2016 with the inaugural lecture delivered by the Honourable Minister of Information, Culture and Tourism, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.

According to Adeleye, “Looking into history at the tragedy of Africa, it’s sensible to say that the exploits of leaders like Dr. Nelson Mandela and few others should be adequate to guide the current and future leaders on the path to progressive leadership, but reality still shows a trend of inadequate understanding of the essence of leadership in many African countries.

“Africa will be better off when people continue to speak out and remind those privileged to be at the helm of affairs that we cannot go far if our destiny is left to be decided by others.”
