Upon the retirement of Oliver Andrews, after 15 years of inspirational leadership as Chair, The Africa Centre recently elected Oba Nsugbe QC, SAN as new Chair.
Oba is a part-time judge and barrister with an international practise 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.
In a video message from Oba Nsugbe, the incoming Chair of The Africa Centre, he outlined his plans for the future where he sets out a number of new initiatives designed to transform the organisation and safeguard its future.
Oba 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.
