The Nigerian government says it is set to launch the “Change Begins With Me’’ campaign, “to entrench the values of accountability, integrity and positive attitudinal change” in Nigerians.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, and the Director-General, National Orientation Agency (NOA), Garba Abari, made this known in separate interviews with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.

They said the campaign was aimed at educating and enlightening Nigerians to appreciate the key values needed for national development.

The programme would be launched on Thursday in Abuja, they said.

“About three to five years back now, the role models in the society were people of doubtful character,” Mr. Mohammed. “Money was worshipped; nobody cared where and how one got the money; these are the misplaced values that we are tackling now.”

He said the campaign would involve every Nigerian and address the shortcomings of every profession and jobs.

Mr. Mohammed said the campaign would also feature slogans that could be easily assimilated by the people.

“We believe that what is wrong with Nigeria is not limited to the elite, the political class and the civil service; if we want that change, therefore, it must address all the issues and target every strata of the society.’’

Mr. Mohammed said the campaign was not a replication of the “War Against Indiscipline’’ which the Buhari-led military administration initiated in 1983, but said it would achieve the same goal using a different means.

“In 1983, they used what they had to achieve what they wanted, which was to correct the decadence in society, tackle corruption and impunity.

“However, in the area of enforcement, people alleged infractions and intimidation.

“But here, we are going to use the media to appeal to people. We are going to use persuasion, instead of coercion and intimidation.

“Our various platforms will be radio, television, print media, bill boards, social media and the like.

“Part of our campaign will also be concerts which will be sponsored by people in the private sector.’’

The minister, therefore, solicited the support of the private sector towards the success of the campaign.

Mr. Mohammed said the National Orientation Agency (NOA) would be the flagship body driving the campaign, to ensure that it gets to the grassroots.

In a separate interview, the NOA director-general said the programme was also aimed at fighting corruption and encouraging peaceful co-existence in the country.

He said it was regrettable that corruption had done a lot of damage to every sphere of the country.

“The Fight against corruption must not begin with the government; people must be in the vanguard of fighting corruption.

“Our schools, roads, hospitals should have been better than what they are now, but corruption has stalled their development.

“What would you say about a woman who uses chemical to forcefully ripen banana and sell it to the public; what about a woman who would use a padded `mudu’ to sell rice.

“A petrol attendant who would claim not to have change so that the buyer would leave the change; all these are corruption,’’ Mr. Abari said.

He noted that lecturers in tertiary institutions also engaged in corrupt practices by selling handouts to students, while lazy students also cut corners by selling their bodies and giving money to pass examinations.

According to him, the change must start at the individual level and inevitably extend to the society and country at large.

“Nobody is happy with the way corruption has relegated the country to its present situation.

“We, the citizens, must take a second hard look at what we did wrong that we will not do tomorrow.

“The change must start with the people in the little things they do in their families, place of work and responsibilities,’’ Mr. Abari said.

    This is Long overdue and to make the campaign more effective,government should identify some of such characters from efcc convicts records and give them public humiliation so that others can learn,experience they say remains the best teacher

      • John A

        Go and read books about charlatans like buhari and the lying minister. Read 48 laws of power by Roberts Greene.
        They preach change, but they don’t change themselves.
        Nigeria has turn to WE and THEM, buhari and lying mohammed has successfully accomplished that in the north and SW. Attack whatever is against their principles.

    @nightcrawler098:disqus

    APC is full of rogue characters. Nobody will believe the APC messengers. Thieves cannot preach virtues
    to honest people. There is 800 billion Naira missing and stolen in Lagos state under Raji Fashola till now.
    Rather than take him in chains to detention for court trial, President Buhari took Raji Fashola to cabinet.
    Is it the same rogue called Raji Fashola that will now come out to preach CHANGE BEGINS WITH ME?
    Nonsense! This campaign is slush fund for ease of stealing because it cannot be audited in details.

    • dpfrank

      Go to EFCC if you have anything against Fashola

      • dele20

        Don’t mind him, he comments with no evidence

      • Otile

        Which EFCC, the one controlled by Buhari himself? You can’t fight corruption with corruption, it is absurd.

        • dele20

          you need not criticise without proof(s) .

          • emmanuel

            Have you forgotten how the crook called Liar Mohammed collected kickback from the head of BON some months ago and when he was caught, he said it was a loan from BON to Ministry of Information for a trip ti China?
            Meanwhile, the TSA had effectively taken off by October 2015, so how did an agency turn a cash cow without subverting the TSA?
            Anyway, we knew it was kickback for the appointment – corruption fighting corruption by fantastically corrupt crooks..
            Na who be f**l, na you or na Liar Mohammed? Abi na who dem dey f**l?

          • dele20

            Sorry to say, How old are you & what class are you?

            Is this what you call proofs? You need to drink hot tea

          • emmanuel

            It is Yorobber to try others based on junk media rumor, but need proofs to try a Yorobber crook. Liar came out to defend himself when it happened. Stop being a st**id Yoruba man.

          • Otile

            I hate the kind of proof you Muslims demand. If a woman is impregnated or crossed you demand that she produces 4 eye witnesses who saw her and the man mating before she can be believed. What kind of proof is that?

  • Otile

    It is important to no know that corruption is worse when you fill sensitive federal jobs with illiterate thieving Fulanis and close relatives of the president, but leaving out well qualified professionals from SS SE. The mantra should be: Nepotism Is Corruption.

    • dpfrank

      Which close relatives of the president? The president appointed competent people not close relatives

      • dele20

        Of course, PMB is unbiased

    • Mufu Ola

      “Well qualified SS SE”? Apart from the ‘original’ Onitsha clan & parts of Imo State which qualified SE are you talking about.We are not talking about selling spoons & socks on street corners or fake goods. I respect the Onitsha axis but not some other clowns.

      • Otile

        You get well educated, well behaved, and well qualified professionals from all parts of SS SE, no exception. Even those the street hawkers in SS SE beat the hopeless beggars from the North, and vicious juju men and women from your own tribe. Is it not so?

  • Aaapeeeceee

    APC SHOULD FIRST OF ALL REMOVE THE LOG OF STEALING IN ITS OWN EYES.
    THE NIGERIAN SOCIETY IS FAR MORE HONEST THAN THE APC PARTY MEMBERS.
    THE REAL CAMPAIGN SHOULD BE: “LET STEALING STOP IN OUR APC PARTY NOW!”

    • dpfrank

      Senseless, so you have forgotten that APC was not formed when PDP was known as the most corrupt political party in Africa?

    • dele20

      You are deviating from the truth,your comment is meant for PDP, that is the corrupt party

  • Martins

    I hope this campaign will highlight the danger of secret and illegal recruitment in CBN, FIRS and Nigerian Prisons? I hope it will also highlight the growing menace of fulani heardsmen killings as it affects our drive of food sustenance? I hope the campaign will highlight the danger of having a lopsided nation where most federal appointments are given to a particular part of the country, thereby engaging in the greatest act of cronyism and nepotism since independence? I hope this campaign will highlight the corrupt acts of Buruntaigate and Dambazugate?

    • dpfrank

      You are derailing from the true issue

      • Martins

        And what’s the true issue? That you have a hypocritical regime in power, who only see things from one angle? Continue to wallow in poverty of the mind.

            If not that you lack wisdom, is it not easy for you to understand that I refer to the coconut head on your neck. Go back to KG2

          • Otile

            I thought you were referring to Buhari, not knowing you were referring to yourself. See, you said: “…refer to the coconut on your neck.”

    Nigerians did not vote for Change that Layi Mohammed is talking about , not change in the news paper or tv , not a soap opera or dramatized change but a positive change that have meaning or positive impact to the people , a change that brings cheaper bread and butter to the table a change that makes salary available to wagers , a change that brings more infrastructure and more jobs . The million $ question is when are we going to see the change the APC promised during the campaign . Lai Mohammed should divert the money to be spent on this paper change in feeding the motherless babies in some homes so that they feel the change .

  • design

    I hope the Nigerian Government reads this. Nigerians will NOT change unless force is threatened or being used. War against indiscipline was the best strategy. I suggest that some punitive measures be enforced otherwise it would fail. Nigerians needs discipline because they are not fully human but a little higher than apes.

Yes, US and Britain supported him because they prefer a pawn, as a matter of fact, a man without any clue of the game theory. Even Abacha understood better, God bless his soul, because Buhari has made him a saint. Nigerians were better off, in spite the numerous sanctions and embargoes placed on Nigeria, during Abacha’s era.

        1.1 All of a sudden, in what appears to be a spell on some of us, we lost every sense of our past history. A man who in his name, some innocent people were brutally killed including youth Corpers, when he lost the presidential election of 2011. Maybe someone should show me a video clip of him visiting the deceased families.

      Change begins with Nigerians who devoted to be POLITICAL TUG, MILITANTS, TROUBLE BIAFRAUD, HIGHER KILLER, DRUG BUSINESS, PROSTITUTE. Above all Change must begin with the Government as many times Nigerians are innocent of the condition. God bless Nigeria.

    The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has described the current level of starvation in the country as unprecedented in the history of the country. IPOB said that there had never been a time when parents were exchanging their children for bags of rice out of desperation or pots of soup being stolen while still boiling adding that this was why security agencies were creating comic reliefs by forming fake splinter groups of IPOB or others Biafran associations to divert people’s attention. In a statement Tuesday entitled, “An Uninspiring Melodrama,” and signed by IPOB Spokespersons, Emma Mmezu and Dr Clifford Iroanya, the organisation stressed that instead of finding solutions to reason why Nigerians were hanging themselves and dropping suicide notes for President Muhammadu Buhari, the security agencies, especially the Department of State Services, DSS, was busy entertaining Nigerians on purported divisions in IPOB. Unquote Does change still begin with the masses or Buhari’ ati the Apes in APC? ANIMALS

  • emmanuel

    The APC Katsina State Governor buys 3,000 Coffins to empower his people at 40,000 each. This confirm that foolanis have no brains, People are owed salaries, Contractors owed in a recessed economy.
    The way to get out of the recession is to prepare for more deaths.
    Who then is saying Buhari is planning or working to get Nigeria on the path of recovery?
    Do not forget that Katsina is Buaris state, so they are leading by his body language.
    Who then should begin the chamge from his/herself, those who would be buried with the Coffin soon? Foolanis are Animals!

  • emmanuel

    Those who collect travel allowance from CBN and convert at Mallam’s rate do not have questionable character? The one who say do not fly First clas; but the children and family members does? That have property in Abuja; but shield it away from Asset declaration?
    I beg i. PDP better pass APC.
    The campaign is only for PDP and Nigerian masses, as the APC allowed to swim in corruption

    We are disappointed with those that voted, canvassed for or aided Buhari’s emergence as the President of this Country. Yes, US and Britain supported him because they prefer a pawn, as a matter of fact, a man without any clue of the game theory. Even Abacha understood better, God bless his soul, because Buhari has made him a saint. Nigerians were better off, in spite the numerous sanctions and embargoes placed on Nigeria, during Abacha’s era.

    1.1 All of a sudden, in what appears to be a spell on some of us, we lost every sense of our past history. A man who in his name, some innocent people were brutally killed including youth Corpers, when he lost the presidential election of 2011. Maybe someone should show me a video clip of him visiting the deceased families.

      The only disappointed & dispirited are looters & their fan club members like u.

      • Tunsj

        Nicely said. The problem is that I don’t know what planet these type of people come from.

  • vagabonds in power

    The entire concept is like asking a starving man not to eat any more food-or drink water————-another method by which Liar Mohamed intends to steal or reloot more money———————–for tinubu-

  • emmanuel

    The APC Katsina state Governor empowers his people with 3,000 Coffins to ease their burial from the impact of recession and the depression which will follow soon

  • Hassan Lawal

    No,..rather,..i suggest the change begins with the old and tired president!!!
    …a President that will rather address petty issues instead of treating urgent national matters.
    I knew the man will fail immediately he attached cheap sentiment to the Fulani Herdsmen show show shame.

    • Sharpy

      @hassanlawal:disqus

      MUHAMADU BUHARI IS NOT A FORCE OF GOOD. HE MUST BE CONFRONTED INTELLECTUALLY

      AND DEFEATED AS A BANE AND A FRAUD ROLLED INTO ONE EMPTY BARREL OF KNOW-NOTHING.

    • Mufu Ola

      You are not likely to end up as an old man.

      • emmanuel

        Yorobber blackmail. Human energy, bones, muscles and brains age and depreciate over time. That is the reason procreation is natural, so that newer generations take over from the old at such points. Whose age tell so much on effective performance is the only man qualified to led over 170 million, then you are the one that does not need old age.
        The corollary, is that you would die early so the old can have more space to continue. Good enough, the Katsina state Governor has bought 3,000 Coffins to help bury young muslims like you!

        • Mufu Ola

          1)U & your gang always believe that it’s a sin for Buhari to contest &( horror upon horror!) won as an old man. 2)U people are so ignorant to know that in progressive societies age is never an issue in gunning for public post.What U’re seeing in China,Japan,etc 2day are the works of old men some of who have died now.In US during the primaries Democratic Sanders is much older than Mrs Clinton. But his support base (against Clinton & other far younger contestants) is the youths! When Reagan & George Bush Snr.won as US Presidents they were advanced in age.Japan & India always field older men as their leaders.In Nigeria somebody wants to leave university or Poly & in 2 or 3 yrs become gov or even President in the name of “youth”.No serious country can tolerant that even those country with quality education system not to talk of a graduate who cannot organise himself.Only scheme about ‘yahoo’ about.

  • Obi

    Change begins with you and I. We don’t have to sit & wait for our leaders to enact change. It’s up to every Nigerian citizen to be the change they want to see in our country.
    We should not only come up with ways to progress and move our country forward, but to actually do what it takes to implement those changes.
    Constantly pointing fingers & blaming/criticizing our government will NEVER lead to progress. Only action yields results.

    • emmanuel

      When the head is rotten, the whole body dies. foolani herdsmen, Madam Bridget killed in Kano, The Carpenter attacked in Kaduna for eating when muslims fasted, the RCCG Pastor’s wife slaughtered in Abuja, The Preacher slaughtered in Kaduna three weeks ago? In all, the head saw it as fulfilment of religious rights will lead to progress.

      • Mufu Ola

        Far worse happened during Jonathan aimless reign.Our memory is still fresh you know.

        • emmanuel

          We don hear. Dem don begin distribute Coffins to carry your muslim people for burial, knowing full well that you are lazy and are worse hit in the recession and the depression that has started; but will be officially declared in January 2017.

      • Powerlessconscious

        And the militant pipe bombing including kidnapping and ritualist.

      • Obi

        Regardless of all the chaos happening in the country, we are not zombies. We’re not robots. We’re individuals with the thinking capacity to make our own choices & come up with ways to improve our lives without waiting for incompetent & selfish leaders.

  • emmanuel

    They have suddenly gone cold. Una don tire to preach change begin from you?

  • Mufu Ola

    A very unnecessary campaign.

  • GEJ FOREVER

    FIRST THINGS FIRST

    BUHARI: Resign for false WASC claim, WASC forgery abd blatant Perjury …. then and only then will I believe in
    the so called “change begins with me”.

    Liar Mohammed has lifted the telling of lies to the worlds newest “virtue” … I hope this program is designed to change him

    • Henry_Itopa

      Eeyah. Still sobbing and wailing after one year

    • excel

      Seriously, even gej will be ashamed of you. Still suffering from election defeat after over a year.

  • abodes_124

    ‘The change must start with the people in the little things they do in their families, place of work and responsibilities, I totally agree. this should include people in authority not spouting blatant lies.

  • abodes_124

    change must start with Lai. let him start telling the truth.,

    • Obi

      Naa, change must start with you and I. We can’t continue to sit around waiting for the leaders to change. It’s up to us, our generation to start moving forward.

      • abodes_124

        The leaders and elders need to lead by example. You can not expect anybody to respect or take a old man who tells lies constantly seriously

  • Chukwuka Okoroafor

    If this was a civil society group, I would have applauded this. But since it is the Federal Government, I will still applaud but perhaps the Federal Government should also follow their own advice.

  • favourtalk

    it will surely change the face of things, we are moving higher everyday and we need to educate most people about the way things will be done right

  • dami

    FG invest massively in the education sector esp secondary schools…teachers / facilities / feeding
    A lot of teachers need to be sacked due to competency issues, but a lot more also need to be hired.
    Nigerians do not know how to create value for themselves due to lack of knowledge….hence why we just always consume…invest in that knowledge engine…invest in education.

  • yusuph

    yes change begins with you and I……I am not here to abuse or cause anyone, I am a change ambassador may God bless my country NIGERIA, I will never have ill talk against my country. GOD BLESS NIGERIA!

  • excel

    This is a great initiative, Kudos to the HMIC for this. Change begins with me.
