African leaders have all too often betrayed the people they lead, because they see leadership as an opportunity to exercise unchecked or autocratic power and amass wealth for themselves, their families, and cronies. Also many leaders in Africa do a lot of talking, with little action. They tell others to do what they themselves would not do. But true leaders lead by actions, not by directions. Finally, a majority of our leaders want to be leaders for life. They stay in power till they become senile or are shot dead by someone. They make sure that until they die, no one else will ever come up to positions of prominence.—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim, The Transformed Mind, p. 231.
