The National Orientation Agency (NOA) has called for a positive attitude toward national values, identities and symbols.
The NOA Director in Enugu State, Mr Isaac Onukwube, made the call while speaking, in Enugu, on Wednesday.
Onukwube urged Nigerians to also exhibit attitudinal change to things that impact negatively on the socio-economic and political growth of the country.
‘‘Our lives and what we do and say must reflect the needed change that would make this country great and the envy of all.
‘‘Countries are built and advanced by individual patriotism and the contributions of its citizens.
‘‘In other climes, we see how their citizens have deep reverence for their national values, identities and symbols.
‘‘We see how they participate with zeal in national civic and volunteer efforts, even in their electoral processes.’’
The director said that the agency had commenced massive publicity using all channels of communication to positively change the present orientation of Nigerians, especially targeting the youths.
‘‘We are using local radio and television talks and jingles as well as direct communication with our people at public fora.
‘‘NOA also gives talks in churches, mosques and communities on the need to imbibe the change mantra of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration,’’ he said. (NAN)
