How did you hear about the Institute for Global Leadership?
Through a friend who is now the first graduate of the programme
Why would you like to participate in this study program?
I have always measured success by knowledge acquired, personality, and associates, the road to success is not very far in the horizon. Through this i intend to move closer to my dreams
Please describe your vision of a world that works for everyone:
I foresee a world where every man will tolerate each, eliminating greed and because god has deposited in every soul, the seed of a great future, but that seed will never germinate, much less grow to maturity, except through the rendering of useful
Service to his fellow man..
What do you see as the most pressing problems facing the world today?
It is a complicated world, with complicated problems. But the underlying root of the problems is actually pretty simple. It’s overpopulation – an environmental issue that isn’t talked about nearly as much as it should be. It took all of human history up to about 1860 for the world population to reach one billion. Then it took about 150 years to get the figure doubled. Then it took another 30years to double it again. The sixth billion of human population arrived in only ten years, and the seventh will come even faster. Even as We don’t have to also tell you that we’re in the middle of a climate crisis. Or that HIV/AIDS still claims far too many lives. You’re already acutely aware of these realities.
But you may be surprised by what you DON’T know about some of today’s most pressing challenges, such as National Debts, Global Warming, Poverty, Education, war, Financial mess such as inflation, credit expansion, asset bubbles, Sustainable energy ,legalization of marijuana, illegal immigration and etc..
In summary of the problems, I have thus named it as insecurity; when you relate it to food, shelter and environment, when animal populations increase beyond the carrying capacity of their environment, natural controls take over, primarily in the form of disease and starvation. Natural population controls like disease, flooding, famine, earthquakes and wars worked for a time with people, too, but tend to be harsh and frightening, and we devote tremendous energy to conquering them. But we aren’t successful at replacing traditional population controls with better techniques, the likes of birth control.
How do you feel these problems could best be solved?
we the occupants of the world are mere caretakers of this world, we should really start behaving like a caretaker would really do to a house under his care, our environment has to be given the utmost care, thereby Conscientizing everybody about the dangers inherent. I also strongly think that we should pay more attention to birth control so that we would not come to that stage were humans will outnumber the resources available, I summarised everything on one single word, LOVE; the world should learn to accommodate one and another, if this is four lettered word is applied, most of the social vices which are threatening our very existence will be put to rest; just like the ten commandment was crystallized on one chief word- LOVE- which say love your neighbour as yourself,- if you love your neighbour there will be not greed, crime, political manipulations which leads to war and most of all insecurity. It’s not too late to start now.
