This paper offers a 10-point agenda for the abatement of academic brain drain from Africa to other parts of the world. It notes that though the brain drain advances those African academics genuinely involved in it, issues about intellectual depopulation and academic labour shortage in Africa require another look. The paper recognises that the global preparation of the African academic vicariously supports the brain drain and that cross-cutting, intercontinental efforts are required to substantially stem the tide.
