Unveiling and Rebranding Nigeria Initiative is a non-governmental organization (NGO) which seeks to propagate several strategies to showcase the true potentials of Nigeria, her people, and heritage to the world. The Initiative aims to leverage information technology and media strategies to unveil Nigeria as a dynamic, rich and multi-faceted country having vast potentials for achieving greatness.
The Initiative comprises of two aspects which will run simultaneously, they include the Technology section and the community engagement programme. The Technology section harnesses the power of information technology to provide information with veriﬁable facts & ﬁgures about Nigeria. The Community engagement programme deals with the non-technology aspects such as coordination and promotion of events that galvanize nation-building interactions such as Townhall Meetings, Opinion Polls, Natural Resources Tour, etc.
Worthy of mention is that this initiative is promoted by a team of active citizens from different walks of life and championed by some distinguished Nigerians among whom is Ambassador Hassan Tukur, OFR, who has served the country in different capacities over the last 4 decades. There will be several engagements on a monthly basis leading up to October this year, some of which include: roadshows, campus tour, community engagements and town hall meetings, the making of the book -- faces of patriotism, football competition/unity league et cetera.
This initiative began as a side-project by a few executives in Nigeria’s tech industry and expanded to include other patriotic Nigerians and is now what has become the URNI community.
