It is with great excitement that I welcome all participants to another feast of innovations in campaign management and perspectives in political consultancy served by the Association of Political Consultants-Africa.
We stand by all citizens in Africa turned into victims through abuse of state power
The Third Africa Political Summit comes up at a time that politics- the laboratory of our collective research continues to manifest differences in the behaviour of human beings in the quest to acquire power, maintain power and exit from power.
The fluidity of these processes is often obstructed and sometimes choked by clogs, human and material, threatening to undermine the system and undo years of progress in making suffrage the civil method effecting transition and enthroning the franchise as a right of all adult citizens.
The provisions for the right of the press, as the fundamental human right of every citizen to participate in taking decisions over how to raise and distribute the commonwealth have been under serious siege. We stand by all citizens in Africa turned into victims through abuse of state power. We pledge to speak in their defense at all times.
The need to build the institutions which nurture, strengthen and develop democracy has never been more urgent, more crucial, and more critical than now. If African communities are going to address their developmental challenges, they must be able to recruit leaders whose emotional intelligence and clear vision lead to a society that leaves no one behind.
The theme of this conference, Building Strong Democracies, responds to the emergency in the politics of Africa and challenges our expertise and resourcefulness as the specialists to think outside the box and recommend the low hanging fruits that can take us out of this quagmire.
So put on your thinking caps, throw away the boxes and let ideas roam.
You’ve got our ears!
