Dr. Obiageli Ezekwesili, a former Minister of Education, believes that Africa has the potential to become the leading continent in the 21st century if its citizens unite to transform the leadership system.
Ezekwesili expressed this sentiment during the third graduation ceremony of the School of Politics, Policy and Governance (SPPG) in Abuja on Saturday. She emphasized that the primary challenge facing Africa is leadership, and that the continent is currently governed by individuals who are not suited for the task.
She stressed the importance of deliberate actions by all Africans to change the prevailing narrative on the continent. Ezekwesili stated, “If we succeed in correcting the leadership anomaly that we have on our continent, one thing is certain, Africa will claim the 21st century.”
Ezekwesili, the founder of SPPG, explained that the school was established to groom leaders with integrity who could make a positive impact in the political and business sectors. She encouraged the graduating students to uphold the values of character, competence, and capacity taught by the school.
Furthermore, Ezekwesili issued a warning that the certificates awarded to the graduates could be revoked if they were found lacking in character or competence while serving in public office.
