Abstract:
Leadership is relationship, between those who aspire to lead and those who choose to follow (Adeiza, 2012). Today it has been recognized that the best asset and source of competitive advantage organizations possess is its people, their skills, attitudes, competences and knowledge. Accordingly leadership and management can only achieve effectiveness if this valuable asset (human resource) is given the right attention and lead with the best skills and compassion; this is eluding the Nigerian leadership structure and therefore senses as the major constraint to poverty alleviation hi Nigeria. This paper examines how quality religious education can assist the nation's growth and development through poverty alleviation by an effective leadership. Solve of the recommendations offered include imbibing positive attitudes in the leadership and the followers who are the leaders to be, above all quality religious education in the education system as a stepping stone to preparing leaders for the nation to effectively steer the mantle of poverty alleviation in Nigeria.
