Dr. Ekrah urged leaders to be innovative, futuristic, and globally minded, borrowing wisdom from Al Maktoum. She emphasized the importance of developing successors, urging leaders to “photocopy themselves” by mentoring the younger generation to prevent a leadership vacuum.

As the people currently holding the pen of power, Dr. Ekrah encouraged leaders to use their influence wisely to serve Kenya’s vision 2030 and Africa’s agenda 2063.

She also congratulated the women representatives and Governor Wanga, emphasizing that gender should never hinder anyone’s leadership aspirations.

The gala concluded with a renewed sense of purpose among the attendees, inspired by Dr. Ekrah’s vision of leadership that serves, mentors, and looks to the future with hope and determination.
