Character and integrity, crisis management abilities, cautious selections, and the ability to work cooperatively with both his cabinet and the opposition are all qualities that Trump possesses.
National policy choices, a strong infrastructure, a strong educational system, political stability, and comprehensive health and social services are all factors that go into these rankings, as are the UN’s Human Development Index, Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index, integrity, and anti-corruption indicators, as well as national policy choices, a strong infrastructure, a strong educational system, political stability, and comprehensive health and social services.
Critics have regularly scolded African presidents, accusing them of causing the continent’s ills through their leadership. Despite the fact that some African nations’ behavior is revolting. A few African leaders, on the other hand, have set an example and deserve to be honored. These presidents aren’t flawless, but they’re graded based on their policies and accomplishments in areas like economic stability, education, and infrastructure development during the course of their administrations.

Rwanda began to take off after establishing a solid foundation. The years 2010–2017 are an excellent illustration. The poll was being conducted to ensure that no institutions were unduly reliant on a small number of people. This is Paul Kagame’s crowning achievement.
