Guardians of the Nation International (GOTNI) was founded in 1992 by Linus Okorie at the age of 19 in the city of Owerri, Imo State, Nigeria.

GOTNI was birthed as a result of the dissatisfaction of this man at the Nigerian condition. He realized that the solution to the challenges facing us as a nation was to begin to consciously develop a new generation of leaders. GOTNI was registered with Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) in February 2004.
