Top 14 Nigerian Personalities
Nigeria as a Nation might lack some things but definitely not people, with this first edition of Gratitude Picture as a way of celebrating the Independence Day (October 1st), we’ve thought it will be okay if we celebrate tremendous faces that have promoted the image of the country in a positive ways, both at local and international levels.
WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?
In the midst of corruption and the low level or lack of integrity in our country, a group of Information Technologist and other stake-holders have decided to take a giant move about these rampant actions which have caused much damage to business relationships both at local and foreign scene. But this time around we are not doing the common thing which is to describe, analyze and complain about how bad the situation is or to fault who is wrong, but we’ve decided we are going to pass through a different channel with a solution called G.P. (Gratitude Picture).
WHAT THEN IS THE SOLUTION?
Yes we cannot deny that corruption is not present but what we are also certain of is that it is not all systems or people that are corrupt, so our job is to find, celebrate and immortalize those people and systems that are not corrupt.
In a simple language Gratitude Picture’s (G.P.) job can be summed up as promoting, celebrating and immortalizing good works at the Local, State and National level.
WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT IT?
In a bid to mark Nigeria’s Independence the G.P. team has decided it is a good time to launch their first ever edition of G.P. tagged Top 14 Nigerian Personalities
It will interest you to know that Nigerians indeed are Great People (another GP concept). When you visit the website www.nigeriangp.org to see the Top 14 Nigerian faces and their good works, you will agree with this fact.
I must however confess that the job of selecting the Top 14 Nigerian Personalities was an herculean one, but I doubt if you will question the selection of any of the personalities here after seeing their works, which makes the nomination to be strictly by achievements.
AND HOW WILL THAT SOLVE THE PROBLEM?
G.P. strongly hopes that by celebrating Police officers, Teachers, Employers (or Employees as the case may be), Bus – Commuters etc. who are doing something good to enhance the image of this Nation positively will be a source of motivation for others and as a result strive to emulate these TOP NIGERIANS.
VISION & MISSION
Promoting good works is our Vision.
You helping in promoting this in whatever capacity you can is our Mission.
WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP
As a journalist that you are, we will need you to help us promote this idea (which we believe is a possible solution to our myriad of challenges) through the platforms that are available to you; blog, website, newspaper, radio/TV broadcast and on the social media.
Thanks for your Support
Nigeria, Good People, Great Nation!
