AU Development Body to Commend Rwanda, Ethiopia for Good Leadership in New Report - Head

ADDIS ABABA (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 10th February, 2019) The African Capacity Building Foundation will single out Rwanda, Ethiopia and Mauritius as an example of good leadership in its new report, which will be launched in early March, Emmanuel Nnadozie, the ACBF executive secretary, told Sputnik on Sunday.

According to Nnadozie, the report will focus on fostering transformative leadership for achieving Africa's development.

"We will talk about some countries where we feel that leadership has demonstrated ... transformative characteristics ... In this report we actually look at case studies of countries and see precisely how people perceive their leadership. Always people give examples of countries like Rwanda, like Mauritius, like Ethiopia ... We think a lot can be learned from that achievement. You can see Ethiopia in a few years has just transformed itself," Nnadozie said on the sidelines of the African Union (AU) Summit, which is currently underway in the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa.

Nnadozie added that it was "inadequate" leadership that prevented African countries from being able to "design good policies, implement them and achieve results, fight corruption and really move the agenda forward."

He specified that the ACBF was planning to launch the report in the first week of March, at the ACBF board of governors meeting in the Cameroonian capital of Yaounde.

The ACBF is an AU agency coordinating capacity development programs. Since its establishment in 1991, the foundation has been providing its expertise to facilitate the implementation of national, regional and continental agendas that promote economic growth.
