NLI welcomes the new Nigerian High Commissioner to the UK with a private dinner hosted by Olusegun O Aganga CON on 19th September 2021.

About NLi

NLI provides a platform for highly accomplished leaders (Fellows) and emerging leaders (Associates) to develop an understanding and appreciation of the roots of their values, the importance of values-based leadership in the transformation of countries and societies, and the need to promote this style of leadership as a major prerequisite for sustainable development and transformation.

Our Story

The major factor that inspired the founding of NLI was the absence of a credible platform for highly accomplished Nigerians in the Diaspora and Nigeria to play a significant role in helping to transform our country/societies. So many successful Nigerians have a lot to offer as critical stakeholders in our country’s development.

The Founder

The NLI is an international, non-partisan organisation that is registered as a Charity in Nigeria and in the United Kingdom. The organisation was founded by Olusegun Aganga (CON) and Dr Christopher Kolade (CON) who was the former Nigerian Ambassador to the United Kingdom.

Leadership Institute

The Institute is designed to be a one stop international and credible centre of excellence where values-based African leaders, for today and tomorrow, will be moulded and empowered. The learning experience will be based on specialised leadership trainings and courses modelled on the Yale University and Aspen Institute standards.

Merit should determine government appointments

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has said for the country to attain economic growth and development, the dominant principle when appointing people into public offices should be merit rather than federal character. He stated this amid grievances in some quarters over the lopsided appointment of persons into national offices by the current regime led by the President, Muhammadu Buhari (rtd).

NLI Fellows
