LOVE and HUMANITY

I am, because you are
No me, without us

Overview

The New Nigeria Ubuntu (NNUBUNTU) Community is a network of Nigerians who strongly believe and live out the principles of genuine Humanity as reflected in the UBUNTU philosophy, as their way of life. This principle is typically based on practical Love and care for one another. We have come to terms that the best and only way to describe the New Nigeria vision is through action and purely based on the UBUNTU principles of selfless service to each other.

Motto

Love is Life, Character is Wealth, Community is Strength.

Vision

A New Nigeria and Africa with Strong Values for Self-Discovery, Equity, and Human Dignity

Mission

To revive and restore the true African values of Humanity among African Citizens

Brief History of Ubuntu

Ubuntu, a Zulu/Xhosa word, is an ancient African Philosophy believed to have emanated and practiced by the Zulu people of Nguni ethnic community, living mainly in the KwaZulu – Natal province of South Africa. The Zulu people also spreads across many nearby countries such as Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Eswatini, and Mozambique.

Values of Ubuntu

Ubuntu has been interpreted in many ways but still points to one central value – LOVE and HUMANITY. Most of the meanings includes, “I am, because you are”, “I am what I am because of who we all are”, “Humanity to others”, “No me, without us” and the rest. It has also been interpreted in many values of life which includes the following:

  • Respect

  • Helpfulness

  • Integrity

  • Sharing

  • Community

  • Caring

  • Trust

  • Selflessness

  • Gentleness

  • Empathy

  • Generosity

  • Compassion

  • Deep Kindness

  • Hospitality

The Conceptualization and Inspiration of NNUBUNTU

Truly, nothing is scarce in this world, except Virtuous and Honest people. Resources and even money is more available to find than upright and trustworthy people, given rise to the increase in moral decadence and dehumanization in most of the societies in the World. This could explain the untold hardship in Nigeria and Africa at large.

Hence, a group of Nigerian citizens have decided that it is time to become a practical solution to the current human decadence, beginning in Nigeria by breathing life into the African Ubuntu ideology as the foundational pillar of the New Nigerian dream. Theories and Talks are over, now is the right time to live and fully resurrect our most priced ancient concept that truly defines the African Spirit even before the western colonization. By this way, we create a new wave of restored culture and community of love, trust, integrity, and oneness beginning in Nigeria and help the rest of the African communities to follow suit, and the rest of the world will have a better option to choose a better life of true human civilization from Africa. “We Are One” campaign begins with the NNUBUNTU community in Nigeria.

This beautiful Africa concept of Life and Happiness seems to be going into extinction due to the overload of political and media pressure to adopt the foreign values as the modern civilization of life. We Love and admire the foreign culture as a people. We also Love and admire our African original way of life. We have missed our ways but are committed to revive and restore our ancient life mines in our generation beginning in Nigeria. This is simply the New Nigerian Dream. We want to prove to our critics that something good can come out of Nigeria. We want to rewrite the history of our Nation and choose how the world see us. We shall use all our various individual and collective gifts and professions to tell the story of Nigeria differently.
