About Me

About Me


My name is Joseph Chinenyeze Ibekwe. I’m an authorpreneur. In the past 25 years, I’ve been engaged in developing leaders, systems thinkers, and content creators including authors and writers.

I love to teach and to create training courses that help people to build their capacity to participate effectively as private or public citizens.

I am the Lead Consultant/Coach at The Joseph Coaching International – a company dedicated to providing specialized training for writers and Authors as well as support young entrepreneurs with life skills coaching. I run training and coaching classes for individuals and groups.

Besides this company, I am the Founding President/CEO, FLED International Leadership Institute, a graduate leadership school, which I established in 1999 to train and mentor leaders and technocrats in Nigeria and Africa. I am also the CEO, Foundation for Leadership & Education Development; a knowledge-based NGO, which I founded in 1995 to promote good governance, facilitate access to basic education and promote entrepreneurial and livelihood opportunities for women and youths. 

 I publish Future World Magazine a human interest magazine. I have written 7 books including these two classics: The Quest for Political Leadership & Citizens Democracy: How Individuals Become Public Citizens (2018), and Politics is a Kingdom Business: How a Christian Should do Politics (2017). Some of my books can be found on Amazon

 I am also the lead Pastor at Graced Family Chapel, Abuja – a multi-dimensional Church family focused at transforming individuals and ministries for kingdom impact. 

I started my journalism career at the Guardian Newspaper, Lagos in 1991, as a reportorial intern. I later moved on to the Daily Times Newspaper, Lagos, where I reported extensively on issues of the environment, health, agriculture and Sciences.

Over the past several years, I have taken time off work to attend several self-improvement courses. For instance, I got trained to be UNESCO Development Expert Leader by the UNESCO Training Centre in San Sebastian, Spain. I attended Kenneth E. Hagin’s Rhema Bible Training Centre, Nigeria where I specialized in Spiritual and Societal Leadership.

My life-time work is about teaching and people-helping.

I live in Abuja with my wife, Maryann Onyineychi Ibekwe, a Public Servant and a Fellow of ANAN, and our daughter, Chidinma.  The three of us play Golf.

We love to serve God by serving our community.
