Do Africans deserve the leaders they get? Mr Buhari nowadays holds weekly cabinet meetings in London. Half of his cabinte has to be flown in to attend, while other aprticipate by video conference. Yet this Nuhari was actually the best of the bunch of the pretenders to the Nigerian throne, because he was looked at as less corrupt and more patriotic than his opponents. We are really in trouble in Africa, but now I agree with you that the canhe we need in Africa is really that of strenthening the institions, and empowering local levels of accountability. Having a strong centre has never helped Africa- as you can see now in Nigeria- the country simply can not move on because the presidertn is too sick..We need to diffuse the power of the Presidency so that whoever occuppies the post is just the equivalent of the Chair of A Board of a Company or Trustees and no more.
