Obasanjo: Decisive leadership could have seen African solution to Libya crisis
Olusegun Obasanjo says if African leaders were more decisive there could have been an African solution to the leadership crisis Libya.
JOHANNESBURG – Nigeria’s former president Olusegun Obasanjo says that if African leaders were more decisive, there could have been an African solution to the leadership crisis in Libya.
Clashes erupted in 2011 between forces loyal to late president Muammar Gaddafi and those seeking to oust him.
Obasanjo was speaking at the African leadership forum hosted by former president Thabo Mbeki.
Mbeki also touched on inclusive economic growth, saying leadership is fundamental in developing low skilled communities so they can play a meaningful role in the economy.
"In terms of achieving this inclusivity, let’s start in the rural areas because that’s where the bulk of the population is."
