Former President John Kufuor has advised Ghanaian leaders to help raise productivity and sustain growth to improve the lives of the deprived.
Speaking at a graduation of the first batch of the Kufuor Scholars Programme Monday, Mr. Kufuor said Ghanaians have great potential but lack good leadership system to achieve greatness.
He said until leaders shunned egoism, the socio-political and economic growth within the continent might be hindered.
He believes that true leadership should be viewed from the perception of rendering services to the people rather than placing the citizens in servitude.
The pioneering class of the Kufuor Scholars Programme graduated Monday, at the forecourt of the John A. Kufuor Foundation.
This marks the culmination of a three-year leadership training process which began in 2016. A total of 14 scholars will graduate at the ceremony.
The Kufuor Scholars Programme (KSP) was instituted by the former president to produce the next generation of transformational leaders and to become agents of social change for sustainable development.
