If Nigeria gets it right, SubSahara Africa will get it right- President Bill Clinton


I have just come back from an  amazing three days in Washington DC with President Clinton, Chelsea Clinton, Jon Stewart and about 1000 students from around the world who are committed to action in making a positive impact on the world.

Bill Clinton & I

While I am unable  to write a full blog post on the highlights of the 2012 Clinton Global Initiative University at the moment, I wanted to share with you the video below in which I engage with President Clinton on the issues of public service, youth and Africa.

Idris Bello (Afropreneur) engages with President Clinton and Jon Stewart at CGIU 2012 from Afropreneur on Vimeo.

One of my greatest takeaways from the 3 days was the quote ‘ Talent is universal, opportunity is not’, hence it is our responsibility to connect those with talent to opportunities wherever we find it.

Bill, I swear its true!
