Adesina stated that President Buhari saluted Nweke for projecting the values of honesty, integrity, and contentment, that should be the hallmark of a people.
He quoted Buhari as further noting that good virtues and propriety, are the hallmark of every culture in Nigeria, while crimes and criminality are exceptions.
His words: “The President believes Nweke’s behaviour, coming at a period that the country needs a positive spotlight and close-up on its real values, clearly signposts what should hold the nation together, inspired by solid foundations laid by most families, religious bodies, and communities, for success in life.
“President Buhari wishes Nweke all the best in his studies, and work as a Teaching Assistant in same University, urging all Nigerians, home and abroad, to keep celebrating the age-old, irreplaceable attributes of honesty and decorum, and shun the microwaved, get-rich-quick tendencies, that bring individual and collective shame.”
