The National Orientation Agency (NOA) on Thursday called for the prosecution of Nigerians and corporate organisations that hoisted tattered and fake national flag.
The Director General of NOA, Mr. Mike Omeri made the appeal in a statement in Abuja.
He said prosecuting the offenders would promote, encourage, respect and value the flag among Nigerians.
He said the agency understood its role as the custodian of the flag, adding that it would promote respect for it to enhance patriotism among Nigerians.
Omeri said Nigerians must do the right things to engage in the process of change and transformation, adding that change had to start from workplaces, houses and the family.
"Nigerians are hardworking, peaceful and resilient people. These are the values we should be celebrating.''
