Abstract

Soon after the end of the Nigerian civil war on 15 January, 1970 vices of all kinds surfaced in almost all the fabrics of our nation. This upsurge convinced many well-meaning Nigerians that there has been a negative drift from our national norms and values. Paramount among such noticeable ills of the society were and are still indiscipline of all sorts, corruption, fraud and robbery. Other vices also include the lust for material acquisition with wanton disregard to the nation and fellow citizens, lack of patriotism, lack of fear of God and complete reliance on the state to provide everything for the citizens or the society at large.

To cleanse the society of these ugly oddities, some of our past and present leaders initiated pragmatic revolutions. The late General Murtala Ramat Muhammed’s radio and television nationwide broadcast in 1975 announced retirement and dismissal of recalcitrant and corrupt civil servants. This brought in some improvement that drew the ovation of a larger spectrum of the Nigerian populace, while General Olusegun Obasanjo’s Jaji Declaration and the War Against Immorality also tried to some extent to rid Nigeria of its enemies of progress. Also, President Shehu Shagari’s Ethical Revolution and General Mohammadu Buhari’s War Against Indiscipline (WAI) were and are still aimed at erasinguglytendencieswhichmanyaNigerianleaderloathes. All these exhortations were meant to imbue in the citizenry good virtues, norms and values. Furthermore, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida’s National Orientation Movement which later metamorphosed into Mass Mobilization for Social and Economic Recovery (MAMSER) and later, the National Orientation Agency (NOA) was geared towards the reorientation of Nigerians’ psyche on the cultivation of the virtue of decency and economic recovery, and while General Abdulsalam Abubakar was applauded as the harbinger of the May 29, 1999 nascent democracy when he willingly handed over the government to an elected civilian administration.

President Olusegun Obasanjo, in his undaunted desire to move Nigeria ahead from her doldrums in the comity of nations from May 29, 1999, initiated many vibrant programmes. Amongst such remarkable schedules were the promulgation into law of the Corrupt Practices and Related Offences Act 2000, introduction of consensus politicsunlikeinthepastwhenthewinnertookall.

Nigeria: The Path to National Rebirth is my widow’s mite in the nation’s bid to enhance its citizens’ awareness on the need to abhor all vices and adore virtues.
