FG says Nigerians No Longer Trust People They Elected

Date:

It is safe to say that the cry of the people has finally reached the ears of the leaders as the Federal Government has expressed concern over the decline in trust between Nigerians and their leaders, and has announced plans to reintroduce a national discourse on reorientation.

While speaking to State House correspondents after his meeting with the President at the Presidential Villa on Wednesday, the Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, said this, adding that Nigerians no longer believe in the leaders they have elected, and that flags were no longer flying in public buildings.

Idris said that the president had given him a “go-ahead” to initiate a programme to reconstruct the belief in the concept of nationhood and patriotism, which has broken down.

“Well, of course, you know that the belief in the concept of nationhood and patriotism has broken down in this country. This is not in doubt. We’re trying to rebuild that, to reconstruct that,” he said.

He said that the new reorientation drive is designed to bring back discipline, patriotism, and belief in the nationhood that Nigeria’s founding fathers had once envisioned.

He concluded by assuring that the Tinubu administration will not seek to gag the media as the president himself is a believer of freedom of the press, but rather warned that the media must exercise such freedom with responsibility.
