A Toast to Winston And Elizabeth
Toast made by President Akande at the Churchill Fellows Dinner, April 9, 2016
Ladies and Gentlemen,
In a world awash with terrorist threats, unprovoked action, unsure economies, divisive politics, where the only thing that is certain is uncertainty, there is a vacuum of leadership that is purposeful, audacious, and timely—leadership necessary to take us from where we are to where we need to be. Let us raise our glasses to all those possessed of the courage and the fortitude to lead leaders. May we all strive to be like Sir Winston Churchill and Queen Elizabeth II.
To Winston and Elizabeth.
