Okowa Frowns At Corps Members’ Disrespect For National Anthem

The Delta State government has decried the disrespect for and nonchalant attitude towards the national anthem by the 2019 Batch C Stream I corps members during the end of orientation and closing ceremonies for the batch.
Governor Ifeanyi Okowa expressed his displeasure over the attitude of corps members at the Orientation Camp in lssele Uku, Aniocha North LGA, Delta, saying such disregard for the nation would no longer be tolerated.
This followed the governor’s observation that most of the corps members remained on their seats, while others sauntered around the campground, and yet others were in a relaxed mood as the National Anthem was being sung.
Governor Okowa, represented by the Commissioner for Higher Education, Prof Patrick Muoboghare, said it was surprising that corps members that had gone through three weeks of regimented life and training would put up such attitude.
Unhappy that the attitude might send wrong signals to the governor, the people of Nigeria and the outside world, Prof Muoboghare urged the corps members to demonstrate respect for and pride in the nation; respect for the culture and traditions of their host communities, saying such would engender proper integration, eschew intolerance, promote national unity and cohesion.

He said: “I sincerely hope you have assimilated leadership qualities like perseverance, discipline, sacrifice, endurance, selflessness coupled with the ability to live harmoniously, among others, which you have been exposed to at the camp.
