Who we are

The Institute for Governance and Leadership Studies in Africa (IGLSA) is an international non-State intellectual and Professional Resource Centre established as a concerted and constructive response to challenges of Africa development. 

A multi-disciplinary Centre, the IGLSA attempts to address some of the skills gaps that may have impeded development in Africa with the primary aim of enhancing the Continent’s capacity to harness its enormous potentials. 

The paradox of Africa is the pervasive poverty and poor infrastructure in the midst of almost limitless human and material resource base.

Partnerships & Affiliations

The IGLSA will collaborate with academic and professional institutions as well as specialized non-State actors in pursuance of its defined objectives. To be sure, the Institute has initiated discussion with some Universities in Africa, Europe and the USA with a view to developing academic and Professional programmes to address identified skill gap. We do not intend to compete with these institutions. Rather, we wish to collaborate with them to enhance the capacity of countries in the Continent to effectively compete in an increasingly highly competitive international environment.

Working with these Institutions, we intend to provide high quality leadership and governance training as well as undertaking research into critical areas of Africa development. Our major goal is to provide world class specialised education at affordable local rates.

We welcome enquiries on possible partnership and or support from Institutions that share the objectives of our Institute.
