Presenting the awards to the recipients at a colourful ceremony in Accra, Mr. John Akperashi Gum, International Coordinator of the Pan-African Transparent Leadership, noted that his outfit identified leadership as one of the greatest and fundamental problems facing the continent.
“It, therefore, became imperative, and as a challenge, for this centre to drive leadership evaluation and assessment, with a view of identifying particular leaders that have offered noble and enduring leadership, which if emulated and consolidated upon, could see our continent emancipated and transformed in all facets,” he noted.
