LAGOS—THE maiden edition of the G-57 strategy, with the theme: Designing the Nigeria We Deserve was held in Lagos.
The event that took place between December 6and 7, at the WheatBaker, Ikoyi, attracted delegates from across Nigeria as well as the USA, Europe and Canada, 30% youth with rich gender diversity.
Presenting the keynote address, Chairman of the Governing Board, Prince Tom Iseghohi, explained that the G-57 is a non-partisan and non-political economic organization which represents Nigeria’s 57 years of Independence, and this was significant in her launch on the 1st October, 2017.
The group has grown in three months from 57 founding members to almost 250,000 followers across the country.
The group G-57 was founded by 57 Nigerian executives who each represent one year of Nigeria’s existence.
The group believes that by representing each year by one successful life, it can inject a sense of urgency into our collective psyche about the value of one year in the life of a country.
The G-57 consists of professionals and entrepreneurs who have shown significant capability and success in their various fields, and who came together on the premise of making a positive impact on Nigeria.
The question prominent on their minds; what has Nigeria achieved in her 57 years of independence? The founding ideology of the group is PUP culture.
PUP is an acronym that stands for Peaceful, United and Prosperous which is the guiding ideology of the group. G-57 ultimately aims to positively affect politics in Nigeria by supporting government at all levels to make the right policies and strategies that will propel Nigeria to be a top 20 respected country in the world within 8 years.
Her members are from all the geographical area of the country, from diverse culture, gender, age and religious beliefs.
Our goal is to grow the Nigerian Economy by creating jobs, vocations etc. Economic Restructuring G57’s goal is to grow Nigeria’s economy to $4 trillion in 8 years.
