Nigerian Books of Record Research Centre is the sole researcher of Nigerian Books of Record. The book was conceived by the centre to promote, project and drive ‘Change Begins With Me Campaign’ of the Federal Ministry of Information and Culture, Radio House, Herbert Macaulay Way, Abuja in response to the clarion call of His Excellency, President Mohammadu Buhari during the official launch of the National Re-orientation Campaign at the Banquet Hall of the State House, Abuja, on Thursday, September 8th, 2016 when he appealed to all Nigerians to support and be part of the campaign.

Inspired by the President’s speech, the centre was created with a single mandate to support the Federal Ministry of Information and Culture and National Orientation Agency, NOA, to drive attitudinal re-orientation among Nigerians.

Our organization has a vision to launder the poor International Image of the Federal Republic of Nigeria with Nigeria’s Best.

Attitudinal re-orientation has for long been recognized as the best way to address the myriad of societal problems confronting the Nigerian society. The challenge of a new Nigeria, therefore, places a big responsibility on all of us as Nigerians to spread the message of value re-orientation and social harmony. We are out to launder the poor image of Nigeria with Nigeria’s best which led to the creation of a National Compendium, Nigerian Books of Record, a unique encyclopedia of Nigerian excellent records.

Nigerian Books of Record Research Centre had recognized the increasing need to identify influential and well respected leaders who channeled their influence to create positive impact in the lives of Nigerians.

The organization encourages all Nigerians to appreciate and celebrate the good side of their country which is the essence of Nigerian Books of Record as a great data base for Nigerian excellent records. It emphasis that, there is no place on earth we do not have the good and the bad people, but a few Achilles’ heel of some bad eggs is not enough to condemn a nation.

Given the current technology-driven nature of the global system and the emerging techno-lexicon of globalization, it is equally important to respond positively to such issue of national interest. The organization maintains that, Nigeria is a beautiful land and her people are intelligent, full of perseverance and NBR holders are great examples of true Nigerians.

Unlike Guinness Book of Record, Nigerian Books of Record recognize and immortalize Nigerians who have made remarkable achievements in their chosen professional callings to break the gap between history and achievers in Nigeria.

Hardworking, zealous, industrious and selfless minds in the Nigerian societies are celebrated as ethic exemplars and are inducted into the Nigerian Books of Record. These inductees are elevated and positively positioned as role models for future generations to emulate their virtues and accentuates the value system of the Nigerian society.
