Thank you for visiting PositiveNaija.
PositiveNaija is a multimedia institution; committed to good news, constructive journalism (reporting solution-focused news and information) on the progress and excellence culture of Nigeria and Nigerians globally.
The platform is predominantly dedicated to informing the world on the positive progress and excellence associated with Nigeria and Nigerians in every field. This is not an exercise to demonstrate superiority over other nationals or people but rather, an exercise demonstrating a unique, indigenous and inherent identity based on ‘bottom-up journalistic’ approaches.
The aim is to provide valuable understanding to how Nigeria and Nigerians are progressing (at what current state of quality) as well as to positively – inspire, educate and redefine the standards of Nigeria’s values based system. In other words, the foundation of our work is not based on convincing that Nigeria/Nigerians are good and not bad/evil (although, this is corollary or an outcome of our work) rather, our work is established on the attestation that Nigeria/Nigerians are good, and accordingly, the continuous investigation on the quality of such good(ness).
“Whenever you do not see beauty, it is because truth has been hidden.” – John Gavin Malkovich
Since January 2015 when we commenced with our work (first project approach in 2013: The Nigerian Dream), we aim to gradually but firmly establish in the consciousness of Nigerians the practicability and possibility of their hopes, aspirations, passions, goals and success by adhering to the principles of hardwork, accountability, justice, love, unity, critical thinking as well as other relevant positive values. These are evident in the published positive news on our platform and in different categories, which we progressively monitor relying almost exclusively on various media channels towards redefining the standards of our values based system.

Vision: To inspire hope and pride in every Nigerian.
Mission: As a human-centered enterprise, to continuously strive towards creating a good, well-informed and empathetic society for Nigeria and Nigerians through reliable news management, impactful research, innovative initiatives/competitions, positive interactions/memories and creative art.
Our Big Ideas: Standards, Reliability, Impact and Speed.
For the work on PositiveNaija, the cardinal point of impact is to be able to cast the visions of the future by uplifting the self-belief that Nigeria and Nigerians are actually capable of doing good, doing it even in an outstanding or excellent manner, and doing it the right way by recording the unique progress and development being experienced collectively – no matter how slow or how ‘insignificant’ it might be especially when considering certain sectors/aspects of the society.
With PositiveNaija assisting in improving the national image or outlook of Nigeria positively, the image of the country can most effectively be positively influenced by the commitment of the Nigerian Government to good governance, respect for rule of law as well as the Nigerian people who trust and believe in themselves and the future they are creating.

PositiveNaija Q&A Forum / Ideas & Debates – positive community platform open to everyone for everyday, practical and constructive discussions on the issues and developments particularly peculiar to Nigeria and Nigerians.
Avoid Greed This Week Campaign: We have identified greed (also meaning covetousness and selfishness) to be a fundamental destructive element to human prosperity and national development particularly in Nigeria. Greed is therefore primarily an unpleasant manifestation in the human nature that seeks to disregard the needs of others and the human environment at the expense of self-aggrandizement. By such manifestations, basic principles of life and development such as peace, love and justice are abandoned. Thus, on our part, we continuously run an informational campaign (“Avoid Greed This Week”) on our sidebars as a way of portraying and encouraging selfless acts.
PositiveNaija Research and Interviews – aimed at reliably, providing descriptive, analytical, factual, constructive and exploratory studies, which are creative and concise towards the positive development of Nigeria and Nigerians.
PositiveNaija Love & Heroes – aimed at celebrating the positive value of Nigerians all over the world no matter how little their impact might be, which the world might be unaware of. The overall goal is to promote the value of the Nigerian human life through the spirit of love, gratitude and positive works/deeds.
PositiveNaija News and Information Aggregator – placed on our sidebars, this is an aggregation of blogs/websites with relevant/quality, positive and factual content on Nigeria and Nigerians (which are mostly beyond the scope of our direct publishing but nevertheless consistent with our values and objectives).
Thanks again for visiting, we hope you subscribe to our updates through our various media channels.
Finally, be positive and God bless Nigeria!
