As Nigerians celebrate the New Year, the Director General of National Orientation Agency (NOA), Dr. Garba Abari has called on Nigerians everywhere to reflect on Nigeria’s journey of nationhood, especially in recent years and see the New Year as another opportunity to contribute more meaningfully to nation building for a more united, peaceful and prosperous future.

In a New Year message to Nigerians, Dr. Abari congratulated citizens for their patriotism and resilience through the nation’s trying moments amidst insecurity and COVID-19, noting that with the sacrificial efforts of patriots in these times, the nation’s survival and continuance as a major player in the comity of nations is guaranteed.

The NOA Director General noted that the years ahead of Nigeria as a nation hold greater glory for the country and therefore called for deep reflection and repositioning from all Nigerians in order to do away with all vices that plagued the nation in the past. He further urged Nigerians to make the needed commitment to henceforth always put the nation first above other considerations, adding that no nation will match or surpass Nigeria’s greatness if its citizens will totally commit to making the nation great.
