The federal government has unveiled a new document called the national value charter, aimed at transforming the public image of Nigeria and reorienting the citizens on their duties to the country in terms of service and proper representation.


Speaking during an interview, the minister of information, Mohammed Idris, agreed that Nigerians have lost faith in the political system and government due to the endless unfulfilled promises and show of selfish ambitions, but noted that the new document will change the narrative through the social contract.


According to him, the social contract spells out national expectations, duties of citizens to the country and the mandatory roles and duties of the government and elected officers to the people to promote accountability and bridge the gap of trust broken in the past.


Idris however stated that political office holders have a huge task of rebuilding trust and the hopes of people, noting the days of expecting citizens to sacrifice and go through pains while they enjoy official privileges are over.
