Response to "Igwebuike as an Igbo-African Philosophy of Inclusive Leadership"

Anthony Ajah


The author of this paper attempted to engage in what may be considered a hermeneutics of a possible link between an Igbo statement-turned-word ‘Igwe-bu-ike’1 , and the idea of ‘Inclusive Leadership’. What would have been considered an interesting part of this attempt is the idea that inclusive leadership is necessary for social development. But, the author of this paper chose not to explore this option. He was rather consumed with the zeal to show how ‘Inclusive Leadership’ has an Igbo-African version. And, one is justified to wonder what in the world is specially Igbo about ‘Inclusive Leadership’?
