Festschrift for Peter Damian Akpunonu on the Occasion of His Priestly Golden Jubilee
The Biblical and African Orientations to Leadership
It is my heartfelt pleasure to write this brief overview on the concept of leadership in the Old Testament. Not only is it my favourite topic, but also because I am writing it in honour of a person who is dear to me. My former Rector and Lecturer, the Very Rev. Fr. Prof. Peter Damian Akpunonu. He is also a person who is personally versed in Old Testament Studies and has attained the academic rank of Professor of Old Testament. He has equally shown himself to be an accomplished leader. For instance, he was a long-lasting Rector of a national institution; the Bigard Memorial Seminary, Enugu, Nigeria and also an international one; the Catholic Institute of West Africa (CIWA), Port Harcourt, Nigeria, and he exhibited very high leadership qualities in both of them. I am elated to dedicate this study to him as he marks his sacerdotal Golden Jubilee.
