The Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, has revealed why President Bola Tinubu renamed the Ministry of Information and Culture to the Ministry of Information and National Orientation.

Idris said the change of name was to facilitate the reorientation of Nigerians to recover our sense as a nation.

This, he said was a mandate given to him by the president.

He added that Tinubu also mandated him to promote patriotism, honesty, and transparency as the core values of the administration.

He disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja.

He said, “President Bola 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 Ministry of Information and National Orientation.

“It means the president wants to put the issues of orientation and reorientation on the front burner,” Idris said.

He added that the virtues of patriotism, honesty, and transparency were some of the 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”.
