NLI Inducts 27 New Associate Fellows
Nigerian Leadership Initiatives (NLI), on Saturday inducted 27 new Associate Fellows of the institute in lagos.
The induction is the peak of the one-week intensive seminar aimed at grooming value-based leaders that will contribute to the development of the country.
Speaking during the induction, NLI Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Yinka Oyinlola called on emerging young leaders in the country to be value-based.
Oyinlola, said that poor leadership is capable of destroying strong systems and institutions as evidenced around the world where poor countries were turned around by good leaders.
“It is our mission at NLI to ensure that Nigeria is governed by character-driven, value-based and purposeful leaders.
“As a result of that, we believe that if we go with the youths, we will deepen their leadership planning, hopefully at some point they will form a critical mass that will drive positive change in Nigeria,” the NLI boss noted.
According to him, the NLI selected ‘a cohort of 27 very accomplished young Nigerians’ out of 1088 from all over the world who competed for the future leaders’ seminar and took them through 4 days of intensive sessions values, efficiency, community and equality to mention a few.
“Discussing with them convinced me that we chose the best of the bests,” Oyinlola said.
He reminded inductees of what to expect as they returned to the world saying: “You are returning to the cage but remember the discussions and initiatives of good leadership.
