Tinubu Condemns Assassination Attempt On Former US President Donald Trump

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has urged Nigerians to change their value system, as that is the only way the country can progress, News About Nigeria reports. 

He gave this charge while receiving a delegation from the National Assembly who came to felicitate with him on the occasion of Eid-el-Kabir on Monday.

In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, on Tuesday, President Tinubu urged citizens to face their challenges, noting that Nigerians are not the only ones facing poverty in the world.

He stated that the challenges of poverty and insecurity must be tackled by eliminating banditry and terrorism so that farmers can return to the farm.

He challenged citizens to have a change of mindset about Nigeria if the nation is to overcome its current challenges.

“Yes, there is poverty; there is suffering in the land. We are not the only people facing such challenges, but we must face our challenges.

“We must find a way to eliminate banditry and terrorism so that farmers can bring out food from the farmland.

“If you do not have good roads to bring the food to the population, even if you grow the food and you are losing 60–70 percent to damages, you will pay the price,” the president said.

“The need (for some citizens) to change the rent-seeking mindset and become more productive to the economy is a challenge. The need to stop smuggling and all economic sabotage.

“Why should we have people removing rail tracks and all that, stealing electric cables, and sabotaging the economy?

“We must embrace the campaign to change our value system. We must tell our people that the challenge we face is for all of us to change our mindset about our country,” he stated.

The President also commended the leadership of the National Assembly for the support extended to his administration, which he said had resulted in some of the important developments recorded by his administration.

The delegation was led by the Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, alongside the Deputy Senate President, Jibrin Barau, and the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Benjamin Kalu, among others.
