Interview: Gbenga Oyebode

In April, the African Philanthropy Forum (APF) held its board strategy session at the Legatum Institute in London. Charles Keidan caught up with APFs new chair, corporate lawyer and philanthropist, Gbenga Oyebode, about the aims of the Forum and his views on the development of African philanthropy.

CK: You’ve just chaired your first strategy session of the African Philanthropy Forum. How did that go?

GO: It was a very productive and inspiring event. We had a whole-day strategy session to identify our priorities for the next 5-10 years of APF, so it’s a good way to begin my tenure and I’m excited to continue to build on this momentum as we make progress.
