The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has disclosed that things have changed within the last few months of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government as Nigerians are already imbibing the culture of change.
He tied this to the President’s demonstration of the virtue of change by adhering strictly to transparency in his fight against corruption and by instructing his drivers to obey traffic rules at all times.
Speaking at an interactive session with newsmen on Tuesday shortly after meeting with the Association of Civil Servants of Nigeria, ACSN, in Abuja, Mohammed stated that Buhari and the ministers had equally imbibed the culture of keeping to time slated for any event by the organiser.
He reasoned that if the President leads by these good examples and ministers follow suit, Nigerians have no option than to imbibe same culture.
The Minister applauded the merger of information and culture into one ministry, assuring that it would make the ministry to easily drive the change agenda.
He therefore sought the cooperation of the ACSN to join the ministry in its efforts to drive the change agenda, insisting that “If the Buhari administration is to successfully implement its change agenda, we must not only partner with the government, we must be the face of change and we must live change.
“My doors are always open, and I am willing to work with you for the realisation of the dream to make our country great,’’ he added.
