President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday  that Nigerians have lost the values for hard work, respect for their elders, truthfulness, honesty, contentment,  humility, patience and all moral virtues....The president blamed cultism, armed robbery, murder, kidnapping and other social vices in the country on its citizens.
Jonathan, who was represented by the Ministerof Lands, Housing and Urban Development, Ms. Ama Pepple, made this known at the official flag-off of National Christian Campaign on Social Transformation, tagged: Be The Change You Want To See, organised by the Christian Association of Nigeria,CAN, in Abuja. According to Jonathan, no doubt, Nigerians have lost their moral values and principles and that so much have gone wrong in family lives, schools, churches and the society in general. He added that Nigerians
have lost the values for hard work, respect for their elders, truthfulness, honesty, contentment, humility, patience and all moral virtues. "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." He added.
