President John F. Kennedy wrote in his remarks on 22nd November, 1963 that leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.
Great leaders never stop learning and their success is measured by the new knowledge they discover, share and apply in leading others. Higher education has been the bedrock of the development of every nation and the right leadership is also the panacea for the growth of a nation. Many people have listened to the stories of developing countries and considering the rich resources have remarked that ‘the problem with Africa is leadership’. Good and accurate leadership doe s not come by chance. Leadership can be learnt and developed. Leadership is all about influencing others to change situations. You ca be a leader that will contribute to change the plight of Africa and other developing economies.
