The National Orientation Agency has called on Cross Riverians to always respect national symbols and be patriotic at all times.

The state director of the agency, Florence Usang stated this Friday while fielding questions from journalists during a one day sensitization rally held as part of festivities marking the National Ordinance day celebrated every September 16th.

“We have gone round the city to sensitize the people and orientate about the national symbols, since we are talking about change, people too need to change their attitude towards their handling of national symbols” Usang said.

Usang posited that the rally was necessary as it will increase the level of consciousness of residents in the states on issues concerning Nigeria’s identity and work towards protecting the country’s image and its symbols.

On the “Change Begins With Me: campaign, she pointed out that the change has to “begin with me, people have to respect the national symbols” which she listed out to include, the portrait of the President and the various Governors, the national anthem, the pledge, the national flag, the country’s passport and the security uniforms.”

The rally which began at the Millennium park opposite CBN, took participants round major streets in Calabar and also terminated at the Millennium park.
