I like Obama because of his charisma, leadership prowess and his intelligence. So far in Nigeria my favourite leader is Obasanjo.He is simply the kind of leader Nigeria needs.
He is not perfect but I like when a leader shows some level of leadership in terms of plans, structures, goals and actions.
Richard Branson is just my role model. I dream to achieve and have versatile mind like him. His range of business interests and how he keeps them all together is amazing. He makes you believe that you can be a person with multiple potential.
