The Change We Promised 'Not About Economic Progress’, Says Buhari


President Muhammadu Buhari has said the “change” promised by the All Progressives Congress (APC) isn’t necessarily about “our economic or social progress,” but is rather about Nigerians changing their lifestyle.
Buhari who said this on Thursday during the launch of the ‘change begins with me’ national re-orientation campaign, also noted that his administration is aware of the deep economic hardship Nigerians are passing through, adding that his government had successfully fought against corruption to a measurable extent.
He therefore urged Nigerians to join hands with the federal government in fighting corruption to barest minimum.
“Our citizens must realise that the change they want to see begins with them, and that personal and social reforms are not a theoretic exercise. If you have not seen the change in you, you cannot see it in others or even the larger society,” the president said.
“In other words, before you ask ‘Where is the change they promised us? You must first ask, ‘How far have I changed my ways? What have I done to be part of the change for the greater good of society?
“The campaign we are about to launch today is all about the need for us to see change, not merely in terms of our economic, social progress but in terms of our personal behaviour on how we conduct ourselves, engage our neighbours, friends and generally how we relate with the larger society in a positive and definitive way and manner that promotes our common good and common destiny, change at home, change in work place, change at traffic junction, change at traffic lights, etc.,” he added.
