President Goodluck Jonathan has identified indiscipline and irresponsibility as two of the greatest problems confronting the country.
He made this known in the Federal Executive Council (FEC) chambers at the State House in Abuja yesterday while inaugurating members of the National Assembly Service Commission.
President Jonathan accused most public office holders in the country of treating their responsibilities with levity but described members of the commission as people of proven integrity, urging them to bring their experiences and knowledge to bear on the job.
He also charged members of the commission to enforce discipline and ensure fair play at all times.
He said: “One of the greatest problems we have as a nation is the issue discipline. Everywhere, from the least office to the highest and in most cases, people don’t take their responsibilities seriously.
“One thing philosophers will say is that in a system where equals are treated unequally or where unequal are treated equally, that system is corrupt.”
The commission, headed by Alhaji Adamu Fika, has as members, Alhaji Idi Adamu Ningi and Senator Dahiru Gassol representing North-East, Abubakar Rufai and Aliyu Abubakar III (North-West), Stephen Yepwi and Abdulkadir Abugi (North-Central), Chukwu Abel and Godfrey Dikeochi (South-East), Oluwafemilola Lamuye and Riskat Adebimpe (South-West), Joseph Okpa Oru and Paul Oweh (South-South).
