Nigeria: Muslim Group to Establish Leadership Academy

Lagos — As part of efforts to assist Nigeria in raising righteous leaders who would position the country among the world leaders, a group of Muslims in the profession and businesses, 'The Companion' has announced that it has concluded plans to establish national academy for leadership and ethics.

The national President (Amir) of the group Ahmed Popoola in an interview with Sunday Trust in Lagos said the academy was part of the way of actualizing its vision of building leaders who will see beyond material means to measure success.

Popoola explained that the essence of the academy was also to extend ethical teachings and leadership training beyond Muslims origination.

He said 'the Academy for Leadership and Ethics' which would be kicking off before the end of this year would be running programmes that would bring out a crop of young leaders who will be leaders of tomorrow.
