The Founder of the In­sti­tute for Chris­tian Lead­er­ship De­vel­op­ment, Pre­to­ria, Mr Oluse­gun Ola­nipekun has said God is rais­ing new set of lead­ers all over Africa from young lead­ers at the fam­ily stage to the na­tional level.

Ola­nipekun stated this dur­ing a two-day Africa Lead­er­ship Sum­mit held in Abuja, yes­ter­day. He said: “If we have the right lead­ers, they will man­age our re­sources prop­erly. If we have the right lead­ers, we will be able to de­velop a new cul­ture.”

He said the vi­sion of the sum­mit is to de­velop such lead­ers and also link ma­jor cities in Africa to the God.

A key-note speaker at the sum­mit, John Ade­joro-Oluwa of Plum­met Mis­sion said for Nige­ria to have good lead­ers, peo­ple must give their souls to God.

In his re­mark, Pas­tor Reu­ven Berger of Jaffa Gate, Jerusalem said the sum­mit was an av­enue to de­velop more part­ner­ship with emerg­ing lead­ers in Africa.

It was also a fo­rum to de­velop Africa-Is­rael cham­ber of com­merce to en­able busi­ness­men link-up with their coun­ter­parts in Is­rael.

Ex­perts say Is­rael has the best start-up com­pa­nies, agri­cul­tural sci­en­tist, tech­nolo­gies in the world and the sell patents to most of the world com­mu­ni­ties.
