The Great Nigeria Project

The Great Nigeria Project is set up deliberately to challenge the existing mental orthodoxy that the narratives described have created.

The Great Nigeria Project is set up deliberately to challenge the existing mental orthodoxy that the narratives described have created. We will strive to challenge the veracity of these narratives that inform a great portion of the behaviour and aspirations of the Nigeria people. This project is set up to inspire Nigerians to begin to see these concepts as they really are, falsehoods and caustic deterrents to personal and national development.

This project will tell the stories of many Nigerians, hidden away in their tiny corner of the landscape who have bet against the odds and are determined to forge ahead. It will also open up crucial conversations in hubs, in groups, and across divides that will spur other Nigerians to begin to ask themselves some vital questions about how they can contribute to the Nigerian story.

The “GREAT NIGERIA PROJECT” is so named, contrasting against “New Nigeria,” because we believe that the new isn’t always better than the old. Having a new Nigeria is not necessarily as desirable as having a great Nigeria. A new Nigeria may merely be a change of the guard/leadership, but a great Nigeria will be about her citizens each contributing their own quota, improving themselves, their communities and the nation ultimately.
