  1. While appreciating the Government effort to lend free education, we have a challenge on the content and deliverables in term of preparing competent leaders and skilled workforce to improve social economic and welfare of societies here in Africa. We need to institute a new dream of Africa as a better place to live than anywhere else.

  2. C’est une initiative très louable à consolider et renforcer a travers un leadership africain éclairé et résolument tourné vers un changement profond des pratiques et croyances rétrogrades qui entravent l’épanouissement du continent et ses peuples.

  3. This conférence is very important for Africa People and leaders. What we need now is results. We spent to much time with no result that can make change in our africain countries. I Will be very pleased if I can attend this conférence.
