- There is a wide-spread conviction that Africa is the land of HOPE for the world: It appears quiet a strong conviction judging from all the sad realities we see and hear everyday. It at face-value appears very optimistic and could be considered as words hoping against hope. Yet the convictions are strong, the evidence and statistics are compelling. This was only a confirmation of a conviction I had only believed by prophecy, Faith was my basis for this same conviction but there are growing evidence now.
- It is only an opportunity we have, One that presents challenges to build rather than a falling fairy: The very obvious interpretation of Africa as the bearer of the torch of hope is the fact that, it brims with numerous opportunities (at least so some of the expect say). For those who have the money, influence and the ability to ‘see’, opportunities abound! Yet reverse are the words of the African Youth, reverse is what appears true! Even in such do I wholly agree and sing the same opportunity chorus although it may be hard to believe the opportunity claim but honestly we as a people have great opportunity to create a new Africa.
- Africa has opportunities but can the African take advantage of them: Quiet obvious among the challenges of Africa is the African. It was quiet an emphasis that the major problem with Africa is the African. The African grows with very little passion to learn hence mostly limited education, bad attitudes to work and corrupt in many instances. Corruption was a single problem that resurfaced time and over again. For me the obvious question for the conference was, can we maximize our lots and take advantage of a time such as we have been trusted with by God?
- The call is for LEADERS: A need for strong and ethical leaders who can produce results is Africa’s cry. The continent’s die need is for leaders who can build strong institutions. Leadership is the strongest call if we must take advantage of our opportunities.
To this teacher I pledge my essence, to this same cause The Eagles’ Wing Foundation will be there to travail until we say the birth of the new African in this new envisioned Africa.
Long live Africa!
