In a statement issued today, the Publisher, Mr Ademola Akinbola, disclosed that the vision is to build a global media brand that will celebrate the good deeds of Nigerians all over the world.

Mr Akinbola noted that the culture of blame, criticism, and condemnation must be replaced with a culture that appreciates and celebrates good people while they are still alive.

“As a people, we are quick to condemn but slow to commend. We sometimes also celebrate people with dubious pedigree. This must stop. A lot of Nigerians are doing exploits all over the world, unnoticed, unrecognized, and uncelebrated. The Podium is out to change this order “, he said.

According to him, The Podium Media, which he founded in 2019, is focused on identifying and serenading the good and exemplary deeds of Nigerians at home and abroad.
