The origins of most of the leadership theories which are referenced globally have been traced to America and other western nations. However, the results of several leadership studies have advanced cultural variances as the limit to the generality of these theories which then might make them inappropriate for global application. This full paper from the Leadership and Leadership Development track of BAM 2013 therefore seeks to review evolving theories of leadership and more importantly present the specific situation of organisational leadership in Nigeria. Findings indicate that the peculiar culture of the larger Nigerian society has great implications for its organisational leadership practices as it was found out that the leadership structures and processes were influenced by various elements of culture rather than by any set theories.
