President Muhammadu Buhari has launched a re-orientation campaign tagged, “Change Begins with Me’’ designed to change the attitude of Nigerians for better.
The campaign is similar to “War Against Indiscipline” (WAI) which he introduced as the military Head of State in 1984.
The President said on Wednesday in Abuja that the new campaign was an effort to sanitise the society.
He said that sanity could only be achieved through a sustained citizens’ attitudinal change.
He challenged all Nigerians to partake in the national re-orientation campaign.
“Inded, I say to the glory of Almighty God, Change Begins with Me,” he emphasized.
The president expressed optimism that with a consistent campaign and determination of the Nigerian public, the desired change would be achieve.
Buhari vowed to eliminate rent-seeking from the nation’s public service.
He told the gathering of top government officials, civil society organizations and private sector operators that he was not under any illusion that the needed change would happen overnight
President Buhari urged Nigerians to shun corruption so as to achieve a better Nigeria.
He advised everyone to exhibit the virtues of honesty and hard work in all their interactions.
Buhari urged Nigerians to always resist the temptation of doing things in the old ways.
Information and culture minister Lai Mohammed presented multimedia materials on the campaign and solicited media support for the crusade.
The Director-General of the National Orientation Agency (NOA), Mr. Garba Abari, said the agency would take the campaign to every nook and cranny of the country
