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!

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
I have been burdened to create a Code of Conduct for members of the League of Extraordinary Men (LExM) on Facebook. So while I couldn't attend service, I sat down and wrote this down on my note pad, then typed it.
This came in a bid to begin to restructure the group to ensure it is serving the right purpose and the right men.

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.
