  • There's so much more to Nigeria!

    Today, many Nigerian adults only know the cultural aspects of our three major ethnic groups. The Peoples of Nigeria will raise new generations of Nigerians with better ethnic knowledge and relations.

  • Let's respect each other

    Acknowledging and respecting the differences in each other's cultures will help us build unity and a greater sense of identity as Nigerians.

  • Africa to the World!

    Outside of Africa, many people do not know the cultures and the peoples on the continent. Changing that will allow us to export our local products to the rest of the world.

"Africa cannot thrive if Africans do not know about Africa."
