Babalola, who founded Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti (ABUAD), will join other institutions and individuals at the Sandton Sun Hotel, Johannesburg, at an event that will showcase some of the continent’s leading public and private institutions committed to excellence, innovation and African growth. Renowned lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria Aare Afe Babalola will, on Friday, get the African Leadership award in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The event will also showcase individuals, whose hard work and leadership have contributed to building legacies and strong brands.
Chairman of the African Leadership magazine’s North America Board, Joe Beasley, said: “We are resolved to shining the spotlight on frontline educational institutions and the academia, which have pioneered excellence and innovation in Africa’s educational landscape through exceptional leadership.”
The event, tagged: “2016 African Educational Institutions of Excellence”, according to Dr. Ken Giami, the Publisher of African Leadership Magazine, is designed to re-echo the words of the late South African President Nelson Mandela that “education is the most powerful tool to change the world and it remains the most potent force in sustaining Africa’s developmental push”.
