The Institute for National Transformation (INT) was launched in Lagos, Nigeria in September, 2007, after Professor Vincent Anigbogu and his team received a two-week training in Europe on the Moral Principles for National Transformation from Dr Sunday Adelaja.
The Professor who had been based in the United States for 30 years relocated to Nigeria to set up the Institute and from Lagos, the team began to train individuals across different sectors to become solutions to Africa’s leadership challenges, and today has grown in presence and engagements with 7 African nations as well as a presence in the US.
He currently serves as the Director-General, and Dr Sunday Adelaja, as the patron of the Institute.

In the book: Good to Great, Professor Jim Collins and his research team observed that to take an organization from a good status to greatness requires disciplined people, disciplined thinking, and disciplined placement and action in that order. In other words, real and lasting change begins with principled people; skill is important but secondary to character.
Corruption in our societies is endemic and has affected economic growth in many African nations. For example, a study revealed that the cost of corruption in Nigeria could rise to 37% of GDP by 2030 if it’s not dealt with immediately. This cost is equated to around $1,000 per person in 2014 and nearly $2,000 per person by 2030 (PwC ng).
