    Peter Obi Expresses Concerns about Omission of Nigeria in HBS Program

    Peter Obi, a prominent figure in the Labour Party (LP), has voiced his disappointment regarding Nigeria’s exclusion from the prestigious Harvard Business School (HBS) class of 2025 program.

    Obi asserts that this conspicuous absence underscores the precipitous decline in the nation’s global reputation.

    On Wednesday, He released a significant statement emphasizing the seriousness of this omission.

    “Nigeria’s negative image was on display as Harvard Business School’s class of 2025 programme has selected 16 countries for its global immersion course but notably excluded Nigeria, despite the program leader being a Nigerian professor,” he lamented.

    The HBS program is widely recognized for its commitment to developing leadership abilities, fostering effective teamwork, and promoting cross-cultural comprehension through immersive experiences in diverse international settings.

    For the African region, the program has selected Kenya, Rwanda, Morocco, and Ghana as its representatives.

    Students have demonstrated a marked predilection for Nairobi, Kenya, where they will collaborate with local businesses to confront genuine challenges.

    Mr. Obi, the Labour Party’s candidate in the recent presidential election, expressed his surprise and disappointment at Nigeria’s exclusion, given the country’s substantial potential and capabilities.

    “Unfortunately, Nigeria’s reputation and attractiveness to international institutions and investors has recently been severely impacted by major obvious drawbacks,” he remarked.

    Notwithstanding this temporary setback, Obi maintains a positive outlook, expressing confidence that Nigeria will recognize these shortcomings and make concerted efforts to elevate its international reputation.

    The HBS class of 2025 programme demonstrates the power of collaboration and knowledge sharing between institutions and countries. It is imperative that Nigeria address these challenges head-on and strive to reestablish its positive reputation in the global arena, he concluded.
