Professor Vincent Chinedum Anigbogu was born on October 19, 1954. He obtained his bachelor’s degree in chemistry in 1978 and master’s degree in analytical chemistry in 1981, both from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Indiana, in Pennsylvania, USA. He completed his Ph.D. degree in analytical chemistry in 1986 at the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa. He taught analytical chemistry for over twenty years from August 1980 as a graduate assistant to May 2004 at four different universities in the USA. In 2006, Professor Anigbogu returned to Nigeria to devote full-time effort towards the development of leaders with leadership and management competencies required for the transformation of the Africa.
Professor Anigbogu believes that sound, value-based education is central to reconstructing the mindset of Africans and people of African descent towards integrity leadership and productive cultural mindsets required for the transformation of their organizations, communities, and nations. Towards this end he established the Institute for National Transformation (INT) in Lagos, Nigeria in September 2007 for which he serves as the Director General. The Institute focuses on developing “no excuse” leadership of integrity and exceptional organizational skills from both the private and public sectors throughout Africa. Such leaders should proffer performance instead of pronouncements, expertise and competence instead of title and position, pioneer bold and progressive initiatives instead of dictatorship and control; and leave lasting legacy in the continent instead of failures and excuses.
INT has training centers in Lagos (Nigeria), Kampala (Uganda), Nairobi (Kenya), Atlanta (USA), Kigali (Rwanda), East London and Pretoria (South Africa), and London, UK. He is married to Peggy for 20 years, they work and travel together in establishing INT centers. Since 2003, Professor and Mrs. Peggy Anigbogu have traveled extensively Africa-wide as a consultant to business establishments, State and National governments, Universities, and Church organizations. Professor Anigbogu admits: “I have an unquenchable passion for a new Africa and to see a fulfilled people of African descent.”
