H.E Dr Kayode Fayemi delivered a keynote talk at the African Leadership Centre’s Postgraduate Conference held at King’s College, University of London where he is now a Visiting Professor.
It was an honour for him to have this opportunity to engage with fellow scholars and address the important topic of the leadership-peace nexus in Africa from the perspective of a Scholar-Politician.

Throughout his presentation, he focused on demystifying leadership in the African governance experience and exploring the role of leadership in fostering a just and sustainable peace. He also delved into the relationship between democracy, leadership, and peace in Africa, as well as the crucial role of regional organisations such as the African Union and ECOWAS in peacebuilding. Lastly, he shared my personal journey of transitioning from academia to politics as a scholar-politician, offering insights from his insider experience.

This topic holds great significance to him, as it has shaped his journey and deepened his understanding of the challenges our societies face. He firmly believes that leadership plays a crucial role in matters of peace, security, and stability. However, it is not enough to engage in theoretical discussions alone; we must also focus on practical implementation. Drawing from his personal experience, he highlighted the importance of bridging the gap between academia, activism, and politics, and leveraging insider knowledge to drive positive change.

His Excellency Dr John Kayode Fayemi, CON is now a Visiting Professor at the King’s College, University of London
