FG urges private sector to embrace `Change Begins with Me’ campaign

Social sharing

Minister of Information and Culture Alhaji Lai Mohammed has advised the Organised Private Sector (OPS) to embrace Federal Government’s `Change Begins with Me’ campaign.

Mohammed said while speaking at the unveiling of the campaign to corporate organisations in Lagos on Thursday that embracing the campaign would ensure positive attitudinal change needed for national development.

He emphasised that the existence of corporate organisations is critical to national development.

“Distinguished ladies and gentlemen, as we recall, the President also mentioned in his speech that the private sector is a major stakeholder in this campaign.

“He said and I quote, ‘indeed when the campaign succeeds, it will impact heavily on the private sector. A punctual, diligent and hardworking staff can only be to the benefit of not just himself or herself or the organisations they work for, but to various governments – whether at local, state or federal level’.

“How can the private sector key into this campaign that is the essence of this gathering today.’’

Mohammed stated that it is important for the private sector to ensure that the campaign succeeds for a better Nigeria.

The minister said although the country is naturally endowed with human resources, there has been a breakdown in attitudinal behaviour.

He, therefore, said it had become necessary “we re-orientate ourselves’’.

He said the campaign would last the lifetime of the present administration.

Earlier, in his address, the Director-General, National Orientation Agency, Mr Garba Abari, said that it was important for the public to understand the campaign and the hard work government invested in it.
