President Muhammadu Buhari has urged Nigerians to support his administration and stop criticising every action of government.
He made this call when he addressed members of the Nigerian Institute of Management (NIM) Chartered, at their ongoing 2016 Annual National Management Conference in Abuja on Monday.
The President was represented by the Head of Service of the Federation Winifred Oyo-Ita.
He said, “I want to use this opportunity to urge other professional bodies, corporate bodies and well-meaning Nigerians to emulate the kind gesture of NIM by lending their support to this administration instead of seating by to criticise every attempt at governance. It is by synergising with government that we can all build the Nigeria of our dreams.”
President Buhari who spoke on the theme, ‘Building a New Nigeria: Strategic Options and Policy Imperative,’ challenged the organisers of the event to pay more attention on the happenings in the legislature.
He further challenged NIM to improve its visibility at public sessions of the National Assembly when Bills are being considered so as to make more robust professional management input that will be most relevant in the public domain.
“To set this country on the path of greatness and prosperity, complete elimination of all forms of corrupt practices must be in the front burner and our collective consciousness always.
“You will agree with me that great nation is the reward of great leadership built on good governance. This is our motivation and value proposition. My administration will, therefore, continue to fight corruption and associated social vices at all levels until they are exterminated from our body polity.
“With your antecedents, I am convinced that the outcome of this conference will be used to further support the good initiatives of the federal government.”
