Group unveils The Nigerian Grand Book
Folio Media Group has stressed the need for private sector to take a leading role in nation building.
General Manager, Folio Communications, Sunny Ikwuagu, at a media briefing to unveil The Nigerian Grand Book, held in Lagos recently, observed that while other countries have used nation building and integration mechanisms to deepen development, Nigeria lags behind.
According to him, “we believe that this project will engender an inflow of foreign direct investments through a well coordinated mix of sustained activities. We have put together critical initiatives and programmes that will be instrumental to the actualisation of the broader objectives of this project, part of which is the Nigerian Grand Book, a national souvenir, which seeks to create a high-impact historical publication to feature the path-finding role of Nigerians and corporate organisations in national development.”
The book is a well-researched compendium of the birth and growth of Nigeria, which is presented in two broad sections to reaffirm Nigeria’s bond of unity and diversity.
It is an exclusive stand-alone collectors’ item, exquisitely handcrafted in limited editions. It highlights historical contents to reinforce an understanding of essential Nigeria in its glorious antecedents and the narrative up until year 2000.”
He also said the project provides a platform to showcase pioneering contributions of Nigerians to nation building and development.
“We recognise the significance of this transformative endeavour to our dear country to brighten the nation’s chances in the race to the future and in restoring our pride and glory. We welcome partners from the organised private sector on this quest of a global perception management project for Nigeria,” he said.
