Hello Displorers, welcome back to another informative video and thanks for watching, He one of our previous videos were talked about the Top 10 Most Educated African President in 2019 and due to how popular the video became, we figured it will be fair to make another video about the least Educated African Presidents. The leaders of a nation play a great role in deciding the future of the nation and are responsible for the nation’s progress. A nation can progress only through decisions of learned and educated leaders. However having a university degree doesn’t automatically make you a great leader considering the fact that there are leaders with several master degrees and phds who are still unable to lead. Despite the fact that having a proper education is a plus for leadership, The African presidents on this list are in no way bad leaders due to their lack of university degrees ,actually some of the best Leaders on the Continent have little or no Formal Education.
