The coveted “Hallmark of Labour” honours was established against the backdrop of increasing decay in Nigeria’s moral fabric, dishonest practices and inefficient management of public affairs by successive governments. The founders of Hallmarks of Labour Foundation “believe that something has to be done to salvage the image of our country; convinced that our society boasts exemplary men and women who — against all odds — have embraced hard work and integrity. They are great Nigerians who can match and excel their contemporaries anywhere in the world.”

Its objectives include: Searching for and identifying Nigerians, Africans and people of the Black race who have achieved success through hard work, honesty, integrity and justice in every field of human endeavor; Using the achievements of these Role Models and their legacies as examples to educate Nigerians that success through genuine Labour is more rewarding and fulfilling; Developing a positive attitude among Africans especially the youth, and encouraging them to discard fraudulence, dishonesty and greed as means to success; Helping in making Nigeria a decent society, that deserves the respect of other nations of the world, thereby enhancing investment and tourism, and documenting the achievements of our noble patriots for the purpose of history.
