President Goodluck Jonathan has called for a change in the attitude of Nigerians regarding the country’s security challenges.

Represented by the Minister of Culture and Tourism, Edem Duke, Jonathan made this call at the official launching of the ‘Do The Right Thing: Transform Nigeria’ campaign by the National Orientation Agency (NOA).

He said that all Nigerian must see themselves as one and pay allegiance to the country through responsible behaviour.

The President said his administration would not rest on its oars to address the daunting challenges posed by insecurity but added that the citizens must play their part in the fight to restore peace.

He said the NOA campaign was another major effort by the government to inculcate attitudinal change in the people.

“This is a moral re-awakening programme that will galvanise the people to greatness, which lies in the right attitude,’’ Jonathan said.

He added that the charge would offer Nigeria a new lease of life, as no nation could grow without a remarkable change in the citizens’ attitude.

Jonathan also advised NOA to ensure that all Nigerians buy into the transformation agenda of the administration.

He said although the task could be difficult, it would get support from the administration.

Also speaking at the event, the Director General of NOA, Mike Omeri, said that it was a programme intended to make all Nigerians, irrespective of class and status, always do the right thing.

“It is a value orientation campaign that seeks to create a deliberate consciousness in Nigerians to do what is right,’’ Omeri said.

He said the logo of the campaign was to strike the conscience of the people on the need to join hands in the development of the country.

According to him, it is the beginning of a new thing that will daily remind Nigerians of the need to be part of the building of a fatherland where justice and progress are assured.

Omeri urged Nigerians to always examine their conscience while undertaking a task in the name of the country and to cooperate with the president to transform Nigeria by ensuring peace.

“There is hope for Nigerians if we work together to transform the country,’’ he said.
