The Mo Ibrahim Foundation, which is dedicated to improving the quality of government in Africa, cannot find a good enough leader to win the world's most valuable individual prize for good governance on the continent.
The prize is awarded to a democraticaly elected leader who has stepped down in the last three years after respecting term limits and has demonstrated excellence in office. The prize is worth U.S. $5 million.
