Nigerian minister, others chart new course for global leadership

In a bid to chat a new course for global leadership, which stems for greater development, three out of 50 most impressive leaders of the year from multiple areas of endeavour, set to enlighten the world on need for vibrant global leadership.

According to Fortune magazine, representing Francophone Africa, Congolese surgeon and gynaecologist, Denis Mukwege, despite censorship by the Congolese government, attacks, and an assassination attempt, has campaigned fiercely worldwide to bring the military use of sexual violence to an end.

Nigeria’s Minister of Environment, Amina Mohammed, acting as the point person for the Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs, has helped link the segregation between developing countries and First World nations, and by September all member states signed on to 17 goals related to wiping out poverty and tackling climate change.

Also, Bright Simons, a Ghanaian, who is saddened by the fact that in 2013 more than 120,000 African children died because of poor-quality anti malarials and counterfeit drugs, has taken the task of bringing up an initiative that checkmates the validity of drugs, by sending mPedigree, a text message with the special 12-digit code marked on their drug packet.

Now mPedigree currently active in 12 countries in the world has its labels on more than 500 million packets, with clients including giants like, AstraZeneca and Sanofi.

Fortune Magazine, which launched its greatest Leaders in 2014, these leaders sphere of operations might be different, and they are all very radically different leaders, they are equally concerned about human development, safety and well-being in a very direct manner.
