President Muhammadu Buhari has described the new National Orientation Programme, Change Begins With Me, as a determination of his administration to carry all Nigerians along.
Speaking at the unveiling of the programme in Abuja, Buhari decried the alleged erosion of time tested virtues of honesty, integrity, hard work, good neighborliness, abhorrence of corruption and patriotism.
He said: “the campaign is all about the need for us to see change not merely in terms of our economic, social progress but in terms of our personal behaviour on how we conduct ourselves, engage our neigbhours, friends and generally how we relate with the larger society in a positive and definitive way and manner that promotes our common good and common destiny, change at home, change in the work place, change at traffic junction, change at traffic lights etc.
He added: “This campaign is part of the determination of our party to seek to carry all Nigerians along on the journey to a better and greater society that we all can be proud of”.
On his part, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed said “we will expect all the states of the Federation to partner with us, especially through the provision of air time on their radio and television stations. This way we can reach every Nigerian”.
