The Leader: Your reliable Nigerian news site

Welcome to The Leader, one of the most reliable news sites in Nigeria. Established in 1956 by the Irish Missionaries, we are a weekly Catholic newspaper owned and operated by the Catholic Archdiocese of Owerri. We mostly cover the happenings within the Catholic church, features, interesting stories in Imo, Abia, Rivers, Anambra and Enugu (Nsukka in Enugu state).

However, we do not only focus on stories of faith. One of the reasons why The Leader has continued for many years is because of our objective reporting on social, economic and political issues happening in Nigeria. We make sure that we are always up to date with the ever-growing political landscape of our country, especially when it comes to laws, elections and political crimes.
