Tinubu Orders Reciting Of National Pledge At All Official Events

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has directed that, at every official engagement, the National Pledge must be mandatorily recited, following the National Anthem.

He said this would ensure absolute respect for the national symbols, strengthen allegiance and fidelity to country, and preserve Nigeria’s ethos and defining character, according to a statement by Ajuri Ngelale, Special Adviser to the President (Media & Publicity).

Tinubu said: “Before I left home this morning, I asked for a printout of the National Pledge, and we have to relaunch it again at this event. The relaunch is about being committed to the values, greatness, and hope of our country.

“It is our pledge to Nigeria, our country, to be faithful, loyal, and honest. To serve Nigeria with all your strength – we saw it on the field of play yesterday.

“We were all rejoicing. Everyone one of us loves victory. We love to win. When you are positive and you are hopeful, Nigeria is winning.

“We did not say it will be Eldorado and smooth all the way. But we are confident that this country will excel in all ramifications. We will defend our unity and uphold Nigeria’s glory in every way possible because we are Nigerians, and we have no other country.”
