The Africa Initiative for Governance (AIG), a non-governmental organisation (NGO), has called for applications into its 2017 scholarships for a Master degree in public policy in Blavatnik, the United Kingdom (UK) school of governance at the Oxford university.

According a statement issued by Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede, chairman and founder of AIG, the initiative would give scholarships to candidates each year with the view of instilling good governance and leadership qualities in them.

“The AIG is a foundation established in recognition of the fact that Africa’s poor record of public sector governance is a critical factor preventing the continent from achieving it’s true potential,” read the statement.

“The initiative brings together proven private sector innovation, leadership and funding into a private public partnership to attract, inspire and support future leaders of Africa’s public sector.

“The AIG believes that the high-calibre individuals trained at the Blavatnik School will drive best practice standards of governance across Africa, ensuring sustainable economic growth and social justice.

“The AIG Scholarship and Fellowship initiatives are scalable interventions aimed at tackling Africa’s intractable challenge of poor public sector leadership.

“I am confident that our partnership with Oxford University’s prestigious Blavatnik School will become fertile ground for growing future statesmen and women who will change the African continent for good. I encourage anyone who believes that they fit the profile for these scholarships and fellowships to apply.”


The AIG has on its panel of advisors, Olusegun Obasanjo, a former president, and Segun Adeniyi, former media aide to late Musa Yaradua, amongst others, who will act as the selection committee for the award of scholarships and fellowships, and mentor the successful candidates.
