Centre for Study of Leadership & Complex Military OPeration


Welcome Message


The dynamics of the contemporary globalised world has imposed on humanity the obligation of in-depth comprehension of the concept of leadership in general and its primary role in complex military operations in particular. This standpoint forms the basis for the establishment of the CSLCMO as one of the research Centers of excellence in the Nigerian Defence Academy. With this brief background, I, Assoc Professor CCC Osakwe, the Head of Centre, on behalf of the Commandant and other principal Officers of the Academy, welcome you to the website of the CSLCMO, Nigerian Defence Academy. It is hoped that the Website information about our centre will be of immense benefit to researchers, students, policy makers and policy executors in the field of leadership generally, as well as in Leadership in Complex Military Operations. This is especially so in the context of the subsisting global conundrum of insurgency and terrorism and the reactive global war on terrorism (GWOT)
