Former Nigerian Bank Leader to Join the Faculty at Tufts University

On July 1, Kingsley Chiedu Moghalu will be joining the faculty of the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University as Professor of Practice in International Business and Public Policy. Currently the CEO and founder of the consulting firm Sogato Strategies, Dr. Moghalu recently completed a five-year term as deputy governor for financial stability at the Central Bank of Nigeria.

Emerging Af“I am honored by this appointment by The Fletcher School, one of the world’s leading schools of international affairs, of which I also happen to be a proud alumnus,” Dr. Moghalu said. “It demonstrates a recognition of the growing importance of Africa’s emerging markets in the global economy.”

Dr. Moghalu is the author of four books including Emerging Africa: How the Global Economy’s ‘Last Frontier’ Can Prosper and Matter (Penguin Global, 2014). Dr. Moghalu holds a law degree from the University of Nigeria, a master’s degree from the Fletcher School at Tufts University, and a Ph.D. from the London School of Economics and Political Science.

  1. Dr. Moghalau’s degrees, he’s a shining example of neoliberalism based upon his questionable (e.g., disrespectful in my view) positionality concerning Nigeria and the continent of Africa. For example, Dr. Moghalau stated that “The more the western world was able to invent and innovate in the past 300 years, the more “civilised” it became. And as Africa, in comparison, remained closer to nature and was dominated by natural phenomena, the more “primitive” and backward the continent seemed” (Moghalau, 2014). This type of flawed logic is akin to President Obama speech in Egypt 2009 when he stated to the African heads of State “you can’t blame colonialism on all of your problems”. Now, I see why former Venezuela President Hugo Chavez gave President Obama the book titled” Open Veins of Latin America” by Eduardo Galeano ( 1973, 1997) due to his ignorance of the realities in Latin America.

    In other words, I am most certain Dr. Moghalau will shy away admitting how the World Bank or the IMF (International Monetary Fund) create, devise, and implement financial policies that negatively impact Nigeria along with the continent of Africa. Yet, Dr. Moghalau has the Chutzpah to say that Africa needs to invest in science and technology. However, Dr. Moghalau will never say that the Western imperial powers along with the PRC (People’s Republic of China) to discontinue the robbing of Africa’s mineral riches. As a result, Dr. Moghalau will willing allow his colleagues at Tufts University to “pick his brain” in order to figure out how the Western powers can continue to maintain dominance of the African Continent.
