NOA embarks on value campaign

By Patience Ogbodo

BAUCHI — THE Bauchi State Director of National Orientation Agency (NOA), Adamu Ningi, says the agency is embarking on core values campaign in the country as it seems that Nigerians have forgotten core value systems.

Speaking in Bauchi, Ningi said that events in the country clearly indicated that people had deviated from the core values which characterised them as Nigeria citizens.

According to him, kidnapping, corruption, militancy, and religious crises are not parts of the value systems, but  have taken the centre stage in the scheme of things.

He noted that with increasing religious crises engulfing different parts of the country, there is an urgent need for the nation to return to the values of tolerance and understanding.

Speaking further, Ningi said that there was need for Nigerians to urgently retrace their steps and return to the core value of respect of one another’s religion as well as respect for our elders.

He stated that child trafficking and prostitution are not part of our value system but have unfortunately been accepted as parts of our normal life.
