The Africa Center has a new chair. The centre said it recently elected Oba Nsugbe QC, SAN upon the retirement of Oliver Andrews “after 15 years of inspirational leadership as chair”.
The incoming chair has since outlined his plans for the future via a video recording in which he sets out a number of new initiatives designed to transform the organisation and safeguard its future.
Nsugbe, the centre said, is a part-time judge and barrister with an international practising focussing on Africa related disputes.
“He has expressed his deep gratitude to Oliver Andrews for his unstinting and selfless stewardship of this iconic organisation through its highs and lows and looks forward to a bright future for the charity,” the centre added.
Nsugbe visualises a reinvigorated charity, more purposeful in its mission to showcase the best that Africa and its diaspora have to offer. An Africa Centre which will once again be the natural home for contemporary African arts and culture, policy and thought leadership with a clear agenda for championing equality of opportunity and social justice.
