Senate President David Mark said on Wednesday that Nigerians needed a change in attitude to transform the entire society. The Senate President stated this while addressing Nigerian pilgrims at St. Mulumba Catholic Chaplaincy, Apo Abuja.
He said that anti-social behaviours would not lead to the transformation of the nation for the good of all citizens.
Mark said that attitudinal change was necessary in families, schools, organisations and the entire society so as to to bring about "positive transformation". According to him, the pilgrims must have learnt some positive things that could help transform the society as role models He urged them to be in the vanguard of bringing positive changes to the country.
"I believe that if all of us, the leaders and the led perform our roles creditably, Nigeria would be a model for other nations to emulate. "I am convinced that we can all make positive changes and make our nation a better place for all".
He reiterated the need for peaceful and harmonious co-existence between and among religious groups. Mark said, "We must continue to preach peace, live in peace and unity with our neighbours."
The Senate President expressed delight that the pilgrims exhibited good conduct while in the Holy land. Earlier, the leader of the delegation, Mr David Idoko, told the Senate President that all the pilgrims returned home and no one absconded. (NAN)
