We recognize the efforts of many Nigerians to build a great and dynamic nation,within a free and noble society. Unfortunately,
the enormous damage done to the Federal Republic of Nigeria by poor leadership over the years is incalculable. Indeed, the very fabric of our society has been deeply shaken and could be shattered, if urgent action is not taken. Hence, the wisdom of a fundamental and sustainable intervention aimed at raising high quality leaders, through the Nigerian Prize for Leadership (NPL) initiative.
Humanity’s history has shown that as long as the leadership question remains unresolved, the challenges of human progress will also remain unresolved. Leadership is the key to development. Good leadership opens a variety of great and powerful doors. But leaders do not just emerge; leaders are raised through deliberate education, grooming and mentoring,as well as ethical training and discipline. This is why we are so determined to raise leaders of excellence, with capacity and integrity.
