NESG Essay Competition

Trust is the social glue that holds families, communities, organizations and societies together; without it, reaching any agreement can become a fraught negotiation. – Peggy (Rockefeller) Dulany, Synergos.

With a global shift towards ‘inclusive’ economic growth, it is argued that economic prosperity and business success cannot be adequately explained by an abundance of natural resources, the brilliance of intellect, or the presence of good laws and institutions.

Rather, economic prosperity requires (in addition to the above elements listed) a culture of trust and social capital that forms an economic input (Fukuyama, 1995).


In the light of challenges that have constantly plagued the Nigerian economy despite being the largest African economy, Nigeria has remained a low-trust country and this has resulted in a slow-paced growth.

With an outlook of building a nation that is competitive and sustainable, Nigeria sets to embark on the long march towards economic growth and improved quality of life for its people.

Bearing in mind the highly diverse nature of Nigeria, we cannot, therefore, shy away from the arduous task of rebuilding trust and confidence in her people. It is on this premise that the NESG calls for applicants for the essay competition.
