Nigerians Have Lost Their Values– President Jonathan Blames Citizens On Vices
LISTEN JUN 17, 2013

Wonder why it's his regime that all these so-called vices are happening. President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday affirmed that Nigerians have lost the values for hard work, respect for their elders, truthfulness, honesty, contentment, humility, patience and all moral virtues during the official flag-off of National Christian Campaign on Social Transformation organized by the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, in Abuja.

The number one citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria was represented by the Minister of Lands, Housing and Urban Development, Ms. Ama Pepple, read out the president's speech that blamed cultism, armed robbery, murder, kidnapping and other social vices in the country on its citizens. The event tagged 'Be The Change You Want To See' was well attended by top echelons in the Christendom.

Read an extract of the speech, “Our priorities are misplaced. We have trained our children to insult elders, parents fight teachers who discipline their children and so we have been reproducing badly behaved children, who come under peers influences.

The church itself has not always done what it should do, some of the teachings in some of our churches have turned the Bible upside down, the Bible is meant to teach us that which is right and help us to do righteous things.”
