Lusaka Province Minister Bowman Lusambo has reiterated the importance of the citizenry in upholding national values for a better Zambia.
Mr. Lusambo says there is need for people to observe the ethics, values and principals of the country at all levels.
ZANIS reports that the Minister said this during the official opening of the 2018 advanced Kaizen workshop in Lusaka yesterday.
He stated that by the country observing national values and principles, it will contribute to improved productivity in the various sectors of the economy.
Mr. Lusambo called for early dissemination of knowledge on national values especially to learners in various schools as well as in families and friends for positive change to be recorded.
He noted that national values are part of the Seventh National Development Plan (7 NDP) and as such people should have a change of mindset by people taking up active roles in creating a better Zambia.
“People should desist from over-relying on government for everything, individuals should also contribute to the change they want to see in the country”, he said.
Mr. Lusambo added that it is up to Zambians to take up the challenge of finding solutions for the country’s problems because they understand better what the country needs.
