The Director General of the National Orientation Agency (NOA), Mallam Lanre Issa Onilu, on Thursday appealed to Nigerians to live and operate with the fear of God.

Onilu made the appeal during a notable media appearance on Albarka FM Ganmo, Ilorin where he discussed the agency’s ongoing activities, the newly introduced National Lifestyle Charter, and the imperative need for character modification among Nigerians.

During the insightful interview, the NOA Director General emphasized the crucial role of NOA in fostering national unity and promoting positive values.

He outlined the agency’s current initiatives aimed at enhancing civic responsibilities and patriotism. Key among these initiatives is the National Lifestyle Charter, a comprehensive guide designed to inspire a sense of communal responsibility and ethical behavior among citizens.

He said, “the National Lifestyle Charter is a transformative document that encapsulates the essence of our collective values and aspirations as a nation.” “It serves as a blueprint for instilling discipline, integrity, and respect for one another, which are foundational to our national development.”

Mallam Issa Onilu also highlighted various programs under NOA that focus on civic education, public enlightenment, and grassroots engagement. These programs aim to address critical societal issues such as voter education, environmental sustainability, and national security awareness.

A significant portion of the discussion was dedicated to the need for character modification.

Mallam Lanre Issa Onilu stressed that for Nigeria to achieve its developmental goals, there must be a fundamental shift in individual and collective attitudes. “Character modification is not just about correcting behaviors but fostering a culture of accountability and moral uprightness,” he noted. “We need to move from a society where corruption and indiscipline are tolerated to one where integrity and responsibility are the norms.”

The NOA helmsman further called on all Nigerians to embrace the values outlined in the National Lifestyle Charter when it is launched and to actively participate in the agency’s programs.

He encouraged collaboration between government agencies, civil society organizations, and the private sector to create a holistic approach to national reorientation.

The Director General’s appearance on Albarka FM was part of NOA’s ongoing efforts to engage with the public and disseminate critical information that supports the nation’s growth and cohesion.
