Who we are?
This site is the largest online encyclopedia and social network dedicated to Nnewi history, culture and heritage. Users can browse our collection of great Nnewi men and women profiles of the past, and interact with thousands of today’s Nnewi history makers. This project is engineered by the new sound of Nnewians, that is creatively declaring the uniqueness and greatness of the Nnewi people of Nigeria.·At Nnewi City Portal, our vision is to inspire the entire Nigerian people, starting with Nnewians, by employing credible media-driven platforms through which we can engage ourselves, as well as the rest of the world.
Our project is a purpose-built vehicle that is designed to enable Nigerians’ and the rest of the world to finally begin to appreciate the richness and intrinsic value/beauty of our diverse cultures, the greatness of our achievements, as well as our enormous potential as a people. Our strategic intention is to be an effective tool that will help the world to know and understand us as people.
At Nnewi City Portal, we recognize that the ultimate task facing us as a people is to build world-class personas and brands; to “showcase” our own achievements in a global setting and economy. Our greatest challenge is to effectively debunk the persistent effort of the western media to consistently and erroneously portray us as the Dark Continent, characterized by the 5D’s: Disease, Despair, Destruction, Disaster, Destitution and Deceit.
Inspiring Nnewi, Igbos and Nigerians are all that we care about. Our chosen platforms for engagement and achievement of the set vision include unbiased reporting, article publishing, television, radio, publishing, merchandising, events, seminars, leisure and entertainment.
