“Having sat under the tutelage of our enriched faculty of over 100 local and international scholars, the graduands have learnt that selfless service is required for nation-building. This has been lacking in Nigeria’s politics,” SPPG stressed.

“The graduands are potentially ready to launch their positive disruptive power to run for political offices, starting from Nigeria’s next general elections in 2023, and with a mindset to utilise public resources for the common good.”

Alero Ayida-Otobo, the Chief Executive Officer of SPPG said the institution set a goal of raising 10,000 disruptive thinking, values-based political leaders over the next 10 years for the transformation of politics and leadership in Nigeria.
