With lots of respects and regards to past knowledge authors on this research topic, we tend to tap knowledge from and contribute to existing knowledge of the subject matter. The desired need of spiritual leadership in the Political Spectrum of the nation Nigeria is a fact that cannot be overemphasized.
1.1 BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY
There is no doubt that we need leaders to shape our nation, communities, and organisations. We are in need of good leaders to help guide us and make the essential large-scale decisions that will keep this nation, Nigeria moving in-line with Gods plan. It is an axiom that Nigeria is richly endowed by providence with human and material resources critical for national development and advancement but without leaders who are willing to develop the earlier listed leadership characteristics and qualities it will all be a dream.
Nigeria, as seen by many of its citizens is a country that has failed politically, how? Since political independence, Nigeria has continued to meander the path befitting failed, weak and “juvenile” state. A state that had very great prospects at independence and was touted to lead Africa out of the backwoods of underdevelopment and economic dependency, Nigeria is still stuck in the league of very poor, corrupt, under-developed, infrastructural-decay, crisis-driven, morally bankrupt and leadership-deficient countries of World. Rather than become an exemplar for transformational leadership, modern bureaucracy, national development, national integration and innovation, Nigeria seems to be infamous for whatever is mediocre, corrupt, insanely violent and morally untoward. Thus, one cannot but agree with the position that Nigeria is a victim of poor leadership and convoluted systemic corruption which has become pervasive and cancerous in the country’s national life. “Fifty years of nationhood, the most critical challenge confronting the giant of Africa – Nigeria, appears to be credible leadership”. Many scholars at one time or the other have queried why Nigeria seems to find it difficult to address her perennial leadership problems inspite of abundant human and material resources available at her disposal.
