Founder of GOTNI Linus Okorie, AWARDED FOR COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP IMPACT IN AFRICA; DEDICATES AWARD TO NIGERIA AND AFRICA
The rate at which Africa is becoming a go-to continent cannot be emphasised without mentioning names of prominent young Africans, among which Linus Okorie of Nigeria resounds.
At the Power Networking conference in Dallas, United States, Linus Okorie, a 41 year old Nigerian was honoured with the ‘PowerNetworker award for Staying the Course on leadership Development’ in Nigeria. Black Americans network for development through this conference every year, and Linus Okorie was honoured for being a pioneer leadership development consultant from Nigeria – a cause he has been on for 21 years now.
Nigeria must fulfill her destiny and the hope in the horizon is thick with opportunities of getting leadership capacities of African especially Nigerians built across the continent.
The CEO of FraserNET, Amb. Gorge Fraser endorsed the work that Linus does in Nigeria with his team at Guardians Of The Nation International, and it may be a good time for Nigerians to take responsibility for their future through learning and electing or appointing trained leaders in all spheres of the economy.
The PowerNetworking Conference is the biggest network of black successful Americans and made the FORBES list of Top 5 can’t miss conference for entrepreneurs in 2015. FraserNet is a global leadership network committed to economic development through education, training, and empowerment of black people. The conference hosted speakers like Les brown, amongst hundreds of coaches, trainers, presenters and awardees.
Linus Okorie received this award along side other Africans, Earl Erasmus (South Africa) and Chief Nana Kodwo Eduakwa V. (Ghana) who were awarded in their own areas of influence. It is commendable that in spite of the fact that Africa is faced with the challenge of leadership deficit, Africans are already exporting the ideal leadership development to the rest of the world while attracting resources and investment back to their African root. This shows that there is a leadership-revolution about to hit Africa from within and Linus Okorie among others will go down in history for seeing beyond a teenagers-interest and growing one of Africa’s largest leadership development movements – Guardians of the Nation International (GOTNI).
An award well deserved!
