It is no longer news that 90% of Nigerian youths hustle for greener pastures in other countries. While some have relocated and burned their bridges, others who are awaiting visas feel unlucky and wallow in hopelessness and the belief that all faith in the possibility of a great future in Nigeria is lost. We blame the trouble of the nation on the politicians/government; everybody says they are thieves, greedy, selfish and heartless looters. At Ace World Africa, we agree with these sentiments but also believe that politicians and government officials do not fall out of the sky; they are what our system produces. When you have selfish, greedy and ignorant citizens, you get selfish, greedy and ignorant leaders. Therefore, for Nigeria to be great there must be a total reorientation and redirection of the mindset of the citizens.
Our vision is to cause a new conversation by redirecting focus on the true causes of corruption, why people engage in corrupt practices and immoral acts and work to cause a change in the social norms and behavior of the Nigerian people, especially the youth population towards the right values. Through our strategic and sustainable approaches, we hope to cause a social change in the orientation and mindset of Nigerian citizens, especially the youth population and the organized private sector about values, integrity, selflessness, accountability, patriotism, contentment, hard work, achievement, money and success in general. We believe that corruption can be reduced to the barest minimum and Nigeria can be great, given the right set of people with the right thinking and orientation.
