Malam Garba Abari, Director-General, National Orientation Agency (NOA), on Thursday expressed optimism that the “Change Begins with Me” campaign would address the decay of moral values in the country.


Abari stated this in an address at the inauguration of the national re-orientation campaign by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

He said that the campaign was part of efforts to sensitise Nigerians to understand their roles in the actualisation of the change mantra of the Buhari’s administration.

“Nigerians must realise that the change we seek starts with us and also understand that the society can only undergo its full change when everyone embraces positive values.

“The objective of the campaign is to address the decay in our value system – discipline, integrity, dignity of labour, social justice self-reliance and religious tolerance,” he said.

The NOA boss expressed optimism that the crusade would, no doubt, entrench new acceptable values and behaviour capable of taking Nigeria to greater height.

Abari, therefore, called on all Nigerians, irrespective of their political inclination, to support the campaign so that its objective would be achieved.

“We must all support this initiative because there is no aspect of our national life that is not desirous of a new beginning and a new orientation,” he said.

The DG noted that the cumulative effect of citizens exhibiting good moral values would eventually lead to a changed society.

He assured that the NOA would use its elaborate network all over the country to take the message of change to all levels of the society and government.

“We shall engage the citizens directly at all levels, use print and electronic media and of course the social media to reach out to a large section of our population, especially the youth.

“These are some of the instrument we wish to deploy in order to take the change message to where it is desired most,” he said.
