Why would you like to participate in this study program?
I like to participate in these because; I want to make a change in life. I believe I can make a positive contribution to the world but before I could be able to do that, I need to expand learn and grow and tap my innate potential. And I think with International Institute for Global Leadership and God, I could create the future I really want.
Please describe your vision of a world that works for everyone.
My vision of the world that works for everyone is the world of unity where we all live with total respect and love for life, a world of peace, a world of equity where all human races are equal.
What do you see as the most pressing problems facing the world today?
I think one of the pressing problems facing the world today is leadership: and a good example of that is my country Nigeria. Since Nigeria gained its independent in 1960 it has never had a good leader and that has really affected the growth of the country. Unlike United States of America and a country like China they have good leaders and due to these they are economically developed and their citizens are highly productive compared to other countries that lacked good leadership their citizens are not educated and they lacked information to worked with and nothing to motivate them to be productive. Another one is: Education because, they said “education is power”, and without it our level of awareness is low and when our level of awareness is low we can never know what we have to do and make a difference in life.
How do you feel these problems could best be solved?
I believe the problem of leadership can be solved by raising the right leadership at the right position. Because, I believe that: “leadership ability determines the follower’s level of effectiveness”. Before a leader could be elected those who are to elect the leader should check the candidates performance background and find out that not only they could steer the ship, but they could chart the course.
Good-quality education should be made available and affordable to everyone in the country. Information should also be made available at the right time and not that it should only be shared within a particular group of people, but should be made available to every one.
