Nigeria – Lux Terra Leadership Foundation

About the Institute

Lux Terra Leadership Foundation is a non-profit founded by Revd Dr George Omaku Ehusani and registered with the Nigerian Corporate Affairs Commission, January 06, 2006, with its board members drawn from various disciplines.

Lux Terra Leadership Foundation is a multiple resource outfit and training facility whose purpose is to expose leaders and potential leaders to the dynamics of purposeful, visionary, transformative and inspiring servant leadership.

In answer to the violent activities of Boko Haram sect in Nigeria, the Foundation mounted an Inter-Faith Activity and Partnership for Peace (IFAPP) platform in partnership with the Islamic Education Trust (IET) to provide a robust public discussion and discourse on how to change religious hate narrative in Nigeria. This initiative attracted other interfaith partnership activities with local and international stakeholders.

Vision/Mission

We want Nigeria being transformed into a nation of integrity, peace and progress through the emergence of effective, purpose-driven servant leaders at all levels and in all sectors, including the political, the religious and the corporate.

We are committed to the formation and transformation of men and women who are leaders, or who are aspiring to leadership in the community, or in the corporate, religious and public sectors, to be leaders of character and effective agents of change in the society.

We continually source for highly qualified expert resource persons for our short term courses, Workshops and Seminars on Leadership and Management issues. We host such other activities, and deploy such other resources as necessary for the training and motivation of present and future leaders and in effective and purpose-driven leadership.
