Titled No Gods No Saviour - it is available HERE
Leo is the founder of the Nigerian Humanist Movement, a former representative of the International Humanist and Ethical Union, a human rights activist, and a journalist.
He is also a Board member of the Brighter Brains Institute, and he is a contributing writer to the think tank Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technology.
He has published scores of essays in the last decade in publications such as Modern Ghana, Ghana Web, The Maravi Post, Butterflies and Wheels, Sahara Reporters, Mukto-Mona, African Herald Express, James Randi Educational Foundation, The Freethinker, Daily Post, African Spotlight, TheHumanist.com, and the USA think tank Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technology.
He is currently working on his PhD at the University of Bayreuth in Germany. His doctoral thesis is on “Witchcraft Accusations and their Social Impact.”
Brighter Brains Institute (BBI) has recently collected many of his essays in an ebook, titled, No Gods, No Saviour. The articles enclosed discuss humanism and atheism in multiple African countries, and are catalogued semi-alphabetically, from Botswana to Zimbabwe. Problems caused by religions in Africa - Islam, Christianity, and Traditional Witchcraft - are carefully scrutinized and thoroughly lambasted by Igwe.
The book can be purchased at BBI’s “market” webpage HERE for $5 US.
The book was edited by BBI Board member Karen Zelevinsky; the cover was designed by BBI Board member Alex McGilvery; and Leo Igwe is also a member of the BBI Board. BBI’s Mission is to promote humanism in Africa, by building and supporting humanist schools, clinics, and orphanages.
All profits from the ebook sales go to Leo Igwe.
