Leadership is the big issue of the hour in our great Continent of Africa today.

Indeed, several nations of the world are devastated by prolonged wars and seemingly unending conflicts due to failed leadership. The greatest challenge of Africa in the 21st century is leadership. Therefore, the African Leadership Development Centre (ALDC) is poised to address issues of Leadership Development across diverse contexts. I believe that the ALDC’s search for solutions to this immense challenge is a highly noble endeavour. The Centre is established to equip participants of the Leadership Development Programmes with relevant knowledge and skill-sets, which will make them rescue and change agents wherever they are.
