Aig Imokhuede: Driven by national interest

This Day

An interview with African Initiative for Governance (AIG) founder, Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede.  address Africa's poor record on governance.

“We went around and looked at world class universities and the one that kept standing out for me is Blavatnik School of Government in Oxford. The Dean is a fascinating woman, what I love most about her is her ability to work with talented people and make them realize their full potential and go back to their countries and do great things. You have people who go back to Asia, go back to Africa and they are doing great things. We spoke, exchanged views and so on and we agree to go into a partnership whereby if we identify great raw materials that is people between 25 and 35, Africans who have the characteristics and talents to gain admission into the school which only admits 120 of the best of the best, we will then give them scholarships."
