According to the Former President, whether in politics or in the corporate world, good leadership is crucial to the growth of the country and urged students at the tertiary level to strive for such qualities.
“Without good leadership that really cares about the sustainability of life we would be lost.It does not fall like a ripe fruit from the tree down for people to pick, we need to nurture it.”
