Codewism was founded in the spirit of finding a Pragmatic solution of African emancipation from western coercion and enslavement, which has dwindled African growth for over five centuries.
It is the system of philosophical thought attributed to Anthony-Claret Onwutalobi, the founder of Codewit Global organization and the president of Codewit Association. Claret expanded on this philosophy through his recent works â€œThe new Africa (2009) to be published
Codewism is characterized by eight principles for African liberation
Afro- Jingoism: To be a true patriot and defender of African values and culture without any apprehension or timidity
Mental emancipation: To be knowledgeable of African history and accomplishments, and to dismiss any kind of complex exhibited by any race or tribe.
Self-government: To expel from one’s self the notion that other world or country could help to solve African problem or help in governing African people
Self dependent: To believe in one’s self and to believe that one has full capacity and the ability and potential to fend for oneself and expel any notion of seeking for pity or aid from foreign world
Economic determinism: To realize that being self-sufficient economically is the basis for rescuing the Renascent African.
Political renaissance: To regain the sovereignty that Africa has lost to colonialists.
Community integration: To expel from one’s self national, religious, racial, tribal, political-economic, and ethical prejudice.
Religious tolerance: To show empathy for other peoples views, and recognize their right to hold such views.
