With a considerable economic potential, Africa rather needs strong leadership to be able to ensure its own development and manage its wealth. Subsequently, human capital becomes of paramount importance whether in private companies or across nations to achieve success. Hence, a new vision of leadership is required in order to get populations out of the sustainable poverty trap in which they are dwelling.
Even if the economic potential that Africa remains enviable, its governance is unsatisfactory when considering its economic and social policies that sometimes do not meet the needs of populations. So how to get out of this rut?
The solution undoubtedly lies in the development of a new « African leadership ». Thus, it is becomes clear that the economic development of the continent is strongly bond to the ability of its leaders to have a clear vision and demonstrate managerial abilities to lead their countries towards economic and social well-being.
I believe, like former Ghanaian President Kufeor stated: « what Africa needs is leadership. Good leadership. Not just any kind of leadership but leadership that has been well nurtured; to direct socio-economic development, has vision and is imbued with a missionary zeal to tackle the myriad of problems that face the continent in prioritized order ».
In Africa, there is an urgent need for a new type of leadership having the courage and skills to build and reinvent the continent in these complex, dynamic, unpredictable changing times and in all socio-economic, political and technology areas.
