  • Avatar Dr. Emmanuel Akpan says:

    Nigeria and African nations have a common common problem of inadequate or lack of reliable institutional policy framework for addressing high prevalence of poverty n associated socioeconomic challenges. Yet development partners seems only to brandish funding opportunities tailored to meet their perceived intentions. It is advisable that funding available be made to address first the basic need n fundamental problem of food and social security as a strategic leeway towards achieving global SDGs n much harped sustainable development. Bars need be lifted to welcome culture n people-centred solution to African problem.

    The age requirement is just a missed opportunity for many. In real life, leadership goes beyond 35 and it’s never too late to learn and mentor others or may be I am missing the point. Thanks.
