Anuforo said this at the National Orientation Agency (NOA) campaign on “Do The Right Thing: Patriotism and Ethic First” and Value Reorientation Methodology” in Abuja.

He said that NIMET weather predictions were adjudged to be one of the best in the world.

According to him, Nigeria is one of the 14 countries in Africa that has scored higher than the average in air safety.

He dismissed the barrage of criticism that had dogged the aviation industry sequel to the series of air crashes recorded in recent times, adding, “safety is not synonymous with hazard’’.

He said that most of the crashes were traceable to human error, adding that the nature of the crashes had nothing to do with the weather condition.

The NIMET boss said that the country could be among the leading world economy of the world going by the transformation

in the aviation sector.

Anuforo said that most of the achievement and greatness recorded by the world’s leading countries were largely due to patriotism and high ethical standards.

“The transformation agenda presents a platform to do the right thing and the result is already manifesting in the aviation sector as we now have world class airports.”

Dr Sam Amadi, the Chairman Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) said that no country could transform without some core values, commitment and patriotism.

He said that these values could bring leaders to work together in order to move the society to a new level, which he said NOA was championing.

Amadi said that the duty of uniting the country was more in hands of the ordinary citizenry who were imbued with extra ordinary commitments, adding, “Nigeria has one of the best policies to turn the country around.’’

He pointed out that the implementation of those policies remained the bane of the country, saying that Nigerians were materialistic.

He said in the country, there were a set of greedy people, who often truncated the good plans and programmes of government.

Amadi said that a lot of transformation was going on in the power sector, and that most Nigerians had applauded the move, adding that Nigerians would soon witness stable power supply.

Mr Mike Omeri, the Director General, NOA said that Nigerians have the responsibility to do the right thing, adding, “the transformation of Nigeria begins with the individual.’’

He called on Nigerians to stop destroying the country with their deeds, work and action, adding that there must be willingness to embrace the right thing to lift the country out of the present predicament.

The members of staff of the NIMET, NERC and National Power Training Institute (NAPTIN) are undergoing a two-day training on “Do The Right Thing: Patriotism and Ethic First”, organised by NOA. (NAN)
