Information minister Mohammed Idris says President Bola Tinubu is determined and has mandated him to promote patriotism, honesty and transparency as the core values of the president’s administration.
The minister said this in an interview in Abuja.
According to him, Mr Tinubu’s ‘Renewed Hope Agenda’ is to take Nigeria to an enviable height among the committee of nations and change the negative narrative about the country.
“He charged me with the responsibility to ensure that Nigerians are reoriented within the few years that we are here so that, at least, we can recover our sense as a nation and begin to go in the right direction.
“It is a great challenge. You know that moral decadence is not among the youths only but among the entire social strata of the country. I think that is why the president renamed the Ministry of Information and Culture to the Ministry of Information and National Orientation.
“It means the president wants to put the issues of orientation and reorientation on the front burner,” Mr Idris said.
The minister further explained that the virtues of patriotism, honesty and transparency were some things that Tinubu is vigorously promoting.
“He has given us a marching order to see that those values are promoted and put on the front burner and disseminated to the majority of Nigerians for the good of all,” stated Mr Idris.
