“Leadership is a major problem in Africa which has given birth to corruption and it has eaten deep into fabrics of its society. This is evident in the decay in its education, security, health, and other sectors of the economy.”


“Africa has got great potentials. Look at its entertainment industry and the success they have made, despite not equipped like the Western World.

All of these have been possible because of its hardworking and talented people.”


“It’s rather unfortunate that the pandemic has hit the African continent and this has shown how poor it’s systems and structures are. This should serve as a critical learning curve for the people and their leaders. There must be a deliberate effort to make things right”, she concluded.
