President Bola Tinubu has directed that the recitation of the National Pledge after the National Anthem at every official and public engagement be made mandatory.

The decision, according to sources from the presidency, is to ensure absolute respect for the national symbols, strengthen allegiance and fidelity to the country, and to preserve Nigeria’s ethos and defining character.

Speaking at the groundbreaking ceremony of the 3,112 housing-unit Renewed Hope City at Karsana, Abuja, on Thursday, the President emphasized the imperativeness of respecting national values, promoting the nation’s ideals, and abiding by its established norms.

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