I agree. The major countries, at least, have been bereft of dynamic leadership, for better or worse, since the 1980s.

Perhaps the only partial exception is Putin: one could argue that Russia is in a relatively better strategic position comparing now to the 1990s, but Ukraine has been a further disaster and the economy is ever vulnerable to the decreasing relative value of oil and other raw materials.

It seems the best argument, all around, is 'it could have been worse'.

Good Luck!

Well I was being serious about Governor Ambode as well as his predecessor Fashola.

How Responsible Governance is Spurring Lagosians to Adopt a Tax-Paying Culture - Lagos Indicator

As well as the facts that many if not most of Lagos's project are actually going through and the Lagos GDP is currently the fifth largest out of all African nations for just 20 million people. He has improved Lagos by so much that it Lagos was its own country its GDP growth would likely top the world.

Imagine in this article Lagos was called the 7th largest economy in Africa and in a year it is currently 5th and is projected to be third by 3030. That will mean only Souh Africa and Nigeria itself would have a larger economy. That right there is what you call revolutionary leadership.

Nobody.

A good leader makes himself redundant and gives power to the people and let them decide what kind of life they want to live.

Wrong, Lagos is a hive of rapist, broken infrastructure, lazy fat ugly people with no meaning in life other than to mindlessly cheat others and kill and butcher others for a handful of pennies.

Depending on which world.
If we are talking of the material world of living people, there are no leader.
But in the underworld - Hell, Hades, Inferno, Geena - whatever you call it - there are a lot of leaders who came to there this century and are disputing the place with the devil. Below a short sample of the list:

Hugo Chávez
Fidel Castro
Kim Jong Il
Muamar Gaddafi
Osama bin Laden
Saparmurat Niyazov
Slobodan Milosevic
Idi Amin

The list will be long if we include the alive leaders, which will be in the hell still in this century.
Many, if not most of them, are currently head of government.

I would want to see who the toughest world leader was and think that they should organize a tournament to sort this out. Probably would need to determine winners by a "tap-out" instead of a fight to the death but it could be scheduled far enough in advance to get everyone's schedules in order.


my first thought was that the Fiji President would be the toughest, but he's apparently almost 70 and even if he was as ferocious as one would expect, not likely to last until the later rounds of the tournament. I'd probably go with the president of Mongolia and former national wrestling team member Battulga Khaltmaa.

Fat? Lagos is as skinny as any European city you could name...
Also I don't know a single person who had been even sexually assaulted let alone raped in Lagos. Have you actually been? While the rest of your statement is pretty on point the other ones are flat out wrong.
Edit: also I meant projected to be third by 2020. For some reason I picked three instead of two. Also why do you think Lagos is so bad...
