African Leaders Have Become More Strategic, Says Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo and Chairman, Panel of Advisors, Africa Initiatve for Governance (AIG), has revealed that African leaders have become more strategic, open-minded and proactive in their decisions in recent years.

Obasanjo spoke on Monday, 8 January, 2017 on “How to Drive Transformational Change in Africa” at the Blavatnik School of Government, University of Oxford, in partnership with the Africa Initiative for Governance (AIG), a non-profit organisation aimed at transforming Africa’s public sector.

The lecture, based on the shared purpose of building good governance and public leadership in Africa, had participants converging at the University of Oxford from within and outside the United Kingdom to share insights with Obasanjo on driving sustainable and transformative change on the African continent.

In the lecture, Obasanjo said: “Transformational leadership abhors complacency. It requires proactivity, resilience and consistency.” According to him, shrewdness in policy development and creativity in implementation are virtues that must not be ignored.
