Tinubu made these remarks when he welcomed a group from the National Assembly to Lagos on Monday to celebrate Eid-el-Kabir.

Godswill Akpabio, the Senate President, headed the delegation together with Jibrin Barau, the Deputy Senate President, and Benjamin Kalu, the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Tinubu said that for Nigeria to advance, it is essential that its citizens adopt new values.

In his words, “Yes, there is poverty; there is suffering in the land. We are not the only people facing such, 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.”

He urged Nigerians to adopt a different perspective on Nigeria if they wanted the country to succeed in overcoming its present problems.

“The need (for some citizens) to change the rent-seeking mindset and become more productive in the economy is a challenge. There is a 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.”CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
