The West Africa Nobles Forum will organise a symposium on the topic “Integrity: The hallmark of successful leaders,” in Accra on April 10, 2014.
The symposium is being organised in collaboration with the Wisconsin International University College, Ghana and will be addressed by the Lagos State Governor in Nigeria, Babatunde Raji Fashola.
Believed to be the most celebrated politician in Nigeria’s history in terms of honesty and accountability, Mr Fashola is rated as the best Governor that Nigeria has ever had, due to his landmark achievements in the area of sanitation, discipline, transportation and integrity in public office, earning for himself the acronym, “Mr Integrity”.
The Governor will address participants, comprising politicians, top government functionaries, captains of industry, university students, the diplomatic corps and the local and international media, on his two-term tenure as Governor of Lagos State and the secret of his success.
A statement issued by the forum said the symposium would be under the distinguished chairmanship of the Vice-Chancellor of Wisconsin International University College, Professor Kofi Oduro-Afriyie, while a Ghanaian lawyer and lawmaker of international repute, the Majority Leader of Parliament, Dr Benjamin Kunbuor, is expected to be the guest of honour.
