We depart from our normal show format to bring you a lecture that Dr. Mo Ibrahim recently gave as the speaker for the Coca-Cola World Fund Lecture at Yale. Dr. Ibrahim is the founder of Celtel International, one of Africa’s leading mobile telephone companies. In 2006, he established the Mo Ibrahim Foundation to improve the quality of governance in Africa. The Ibrahim Index of African Governance provides civil society and governments with a comprehensive and quantifiable tool to assess governance and promote accountability. The Ibrahim Prize for Achievement in African Leadership recognizes and celebrates excellence. Listed by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world, Dr. Ibrahim has received numerous honorary degrees and awards. The title of Dr. Ibrahim’s lecture is “Governance, Leadership, Civil Society and the Private Sector: An African Perspective.”
