A nongovernmental organization, Lifesavers Ambassadors International, has expressed worry about the spate of killings, hate speeches and the level of corruption in the country and has called for attitudinal change from Nigerians.
The president of the group, Dr Junita Nwendu, made the plea at an interfaith programme with the theme: “Mentality Renovation” organized to foster love and unity among Nigerians irrespective of their religious, cultural or tribal background.
She called for attitudinal change saying Nigerians must believe in the unity of the country. “We must learn how to forgive one another because a forgiving heart is what we need as a nation to move forward. We are stronger together, Nigeria is not as bad as it is being portrayed. If we can put hands together and support what President Muhammadu Buhari is doing, everything will be fall in line in this great country of ours,” she said.
Also a former presidential aide, Mrs Sarah Jubril, said the first fight against corruption is the human mind. She canvassed for behavioural change through ethics and mentality renovation saying that Nigerians must “willingly police their minds without being policed.”
She however called for a stop to killings across the country and urged the government to translate the Nigerian constitution into local languages for better understanding.
