Orientation agency lauds drive against draft

08 December 2015, 21:33

Abuja - The Director-General of the National Orientation Agency, Mike Omeri, has welcomed the ongoing anti-corruption campaign of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

Speaking at a just-concluded eighth Annual Forum of Laureates of the Nigerian National Order of Merit (NNOM), he described the crusade as a “cultural re-awakening.”

“The cultural re-awakening will minimize the level of moral decadence in the society as well as enhance the change agenda of the present administration,” he said while presenting a paper on Traditional African Culture and Issues of Corruption.

“To successfully address the problem of corruption in Nigeria, a programme of cultural re-awakening is imperative,” said Omeri.

Omeri said that the campaign would help return Nigeria to its age long traditional values and also mobilize citizens to embrace the change necessary for national development.

“It is noteworthy that corruption was a major campaign issue during the presidential election of 2015. In fact, it is unarguable that President Buhari secured the overwhelming support of the electorates because of the mantra of change which formed his campaign slogan,” said Omeri.

“It is, therefore, justifiable that his administration is overtly committed to the process of bringing about required change that will move Nigeria to greatness.”

Omeri said his agency had since embarked on a comprehensive social re-engineering campaign with the title, “Do the Right Thing: Transform Nigeria.”

It is a call to Nigerians to join hands to make Nigeria a corrupt free nation by building on the path of stability, growth and development.
