The United Nigeria Group (TUNG) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization comprised of a group of progressive Nigerians — at home and in the Diaspora— who are committed to the growth and development of our beloved country, Nigeria.
The United Nigeria Group is dedicated to a democratic and united Nigeria. The movement was inspired by the need to elevate our country to its rightful place in the world. For too long many of us have sat on the sidelines watching some of our leaders put themselves before the interests of the people they were elected to serve.
The United Nigeria Group also believes that to make progress and take our country to a place where we can achieve our full potential, we should focus on our positive achievements and contributes more towards the uplifting of our collective existence as a nation. The government cannot always do it all. Our elected officials need the full support of the citizens.
The United Nigeria Group is not in denial that our nation has issues that must be dealt with, but we cannot continue to slam Nigeria without being vocal about solutions as well. It is our position that there are enough civilians in society and media outlets who make their living from focusing on the negative aspects about Nigeria on a daily basis and so we choose to concentrate on the other area they fail to elaborate on.
