The Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has said that government is in the process of
launching a massive, nationwide campaign, tagged: “Change Begins With Me,” which is a
rejuvenated War Against Indiscipline (WAI). The essence of the campaign, he said, would be to
make Nigerians to realise that the change they so much desire would start with them.

Speaking during a courtesy visit to Rutam House, the corporate headquarters of The Guardian in
Lagos yesterday, he said that many people have approached the government over what theyconsidered the distorted values in our society. They are worried about the erosion of values,
widespread indiscipline, dwindling integrity, poor attitude to work, etc.

“They say it is time for the government to launch another War Against Indiscipline, WAI. If the
Danfo driver will stop drinking paraga before hitting the road, if the patent medicine store operator will stop selling fake drugs, if the average worker will carry out his or her duties diligently, our society will be a better place.”

He said that to herald this campaign, the ministry plans to hold a Summit on National Rebirth,
Values and Ethics in July.Mohammed also used the occasion to speak on the first year anniversary of the Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, which is fast approaching.

“Our party, All Progressives Congress (APC), campaigned on three broad areas: To tackle insecurity, fight corruption and revive the economy.”
According to him on the fight against insecurity, which he described as the most undoubtedly
biggest challenge that the Buhari’s administration faced upon its assumption of office on May 29,
2015, it has made a rare feat by subduing Boko Haram, making it impossible for the group to
carry out any more spectacular attacks as it did in the past.
