Other role model leaders with exemplary profiles and global relevance, who were keynote speakers of the Awards in past editions include, Dr. Okonjo-Iweala, former Coordinating Minister of the Economy (Nigeria), and former Vice President of the Africa Desk of World Bank, Obiageli Ezekwesili.
“This is a great initiative. Africa’s future lies in the hands of the empowered youth who have taken up the charge to shape it. I am looking forward to meeting my neighbours and friends, and to help echo the message of inspiration,” Nana Akufo-Addo said.
“Dr. Akufo-Addo is a man of the people, who recently emerged victorious in Ghana’s presidential election, after inspiring Ghanaians to vote for change. Before he became a politician, he used his law practice to champion the cause of human rights, rule of law, justice, freedom, and democracy.
In business, he was also responsible for, the introduction of mobile telephony into Ghana. Undoubtedly, Nigeria has a lot to learn from a visionary leader who puts the people he wants to serve first.
He will be bringing his vast wealth of knowledge and experience to bear when the awards ceremony is held on Sunday, 18th of December, 2016, at the Federal Palace Hotel, Lagos,” a statement by the organisers disclosed.
