This paper is an analysis of leadership and followership in all organizations. It is an attempt to provide an answer to the recurring problem of isolating followership from leadership in a total and definite manner by certain scholars and commentators particularly in turbulent times. Leadership and followership are two sides of the same coin and is one of the basic needs of every human organization. Leadership effectiveness is a necessary condition for group, organizational and national success/development. It is widely held or acknowledged that "everything rises andfalls on leadership". However, the role and place of followership in any organization cannot be overemphasized, in view of the fact that it constitutes a large chunk of the whole. The emphasis therefore is that leadership is a subset of followership. This realization makes the role of followership very obvious in leadership success. Therefore, an attempt has been made in this paper to uncover the synergy produced from the symbiosis of the two in practice via analysis. Consequently, the togetherness of the two has been established beyond doubt in this work
