“Go back to where you come from” takes a panoramic view of history; of the convergence of conditions that sent young men and women from our midst into slavery, and is today forcing them into often hopeless searches for Utopia in the West. “Commentaries on 10 reasons African Presidents are perceived as corrupt”, “OMG 1 – Snouts in the trough”, and “OMG 2 – Living African leaders in dollars” shed light on very often un-explained wealth and opulence of our leaders and the creative and incorrigible ways they employ to accumulate wealth and/or retain power.
“Wow! Unholy Tilapia Baloney” is a glimpse of the alchemist of false hope – the new churhes – one of the raging and corrupt ways to riches on the continent. “Declare your assets now! Stolen assets will be confiscated!” delves into the whole issue of un-explained accumulation of assets by people entrusted with power or who have stolen power. It ponders the mindsets of these people and proposes a mechanism to thwart the machinations of the people with the means to steal our assets.
Professor Paul Omojo Omaji is one of the many big-hearted Africans quietly and tirelessly working against incredible odds to make Africa a better place. He promotes virtuous leardership at all levels of responsibility through his creation: Omaji Leadership Solutions. In the interview, he talked to Hypothetical Africa about his life: early years, education, professional life and the calling on his heart to buttress virtuous leadership in Nigeria and all through Africa.
