Codewit World News (formerly known as Codewit Global Network from inception) is a citizen digital journalism and communication organization and an outstanding, groundbreaking website that encourages citizen journalists to report ongoing corruption and government malfeasance in Africa. It was established in December, 2007.
At Codewit, our vision is to inspire the entire African people, starting with Nigerians, 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 Africans and the rest of the world to finally begin to appreciate the richness and intrinsic value/beauty of Africa 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 Africa as a people with purpose.
The portal is among the world's leaders in online news and information delivery. The project is engineered by Nigerians, creatively declaring the uniqueness and greatness of the African People· We bring you closer on what's happening inside Africa without the filter and bias of western media. Showcasing Africa multimedia technologies, from live video streaming to audio packages to searchable archives of news features and background information. Remember Information is power, and no stories need greater exposure than those of the African stories.
Codewit.com informs and prompts concerned African citizens and other human rights activists globally to act, denouncing officially-sanctioned corruption, the material impoverishment of its citizenry, defilement of the environment, and the callous disregard of the democratic principles enshrined in the constitution of different nations in Africa.
We recognize that the ultimate task facing us as a nation 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 Africans and Nigerians is one of our key objectives. 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.
This project, which was conceived by Mr. Anthony Claret Onwutalobi, the founder of Codewit Global Network is for Africans and friends of Africa. The founder believes that Codewit Network would teach people particularly African youths to understand and challenge the present problems in their communities and search for an African solution.
