"When you become mentally convinced that you can make a comeback from any adversity,then all your creative forces will come to your aid to help you achieve your goals"
The Aim of Get Talking Naija is signalling the importance of equipping young people and adults with the knowledge and skills to make responsible choices in their lives, particularly in the context where they have a greater exposure to sexually explicit material, through the internet and other media.
To create a forum where y people can speak up and speak out about issues affecting our day to day lives, ranging from love, fashion, education, music, religion and many more.
At Get Talking Naija we emphasize the importance of Dialogue and Communication.Many observers of culture and society have noted the changing norms of dialogue and communication in society. We seem to live in a more polarized world in which talk show hosts and commentators present dogmatic views and opinions as fact without any accountability or proof, or with what we in the academic community would consider reasoned logic after a careful consideration of the data and evidence. And while some may consider entertaining television shows that feature guests who shout at each other without listening or responding directly to other legitimate points of view, it should not serve as a model for how people deal with each other, particularly when it comes to problem-solving the serious challenges and setbacks that threaten the well-being of a community.
As we look forward and prepare to address the difficult challenges that lie ahead, we hope, our communities and us will continue to emphasize and strengthen our use of dialogue to both sustain us and to problem solve.
