Unveiling the brigade, the Buhari-led Federal Government explained that the body will aide civil intelligence gathering in the area of insecurity, violence, kidnapping, and other forms of social vices.

Speaking during the unveiling, the Director General of National Orientation Agency, NOA, Dr Garba Abari said the current administration decided to re-introduce the programme for better performance in the fight against indiscipline and corruptionwai2

Recall that Buhari while he was the Military Head of State from 1984 to 1985, had introduced WAI as a panacea for corruption and to force Nigerians into exhibiting correct ethical conduct.

The programme then had gained so much popularity, as Nigerians disciplined themselves to do the right thing. The culture even continued for a while after he was ousted.

WAI was, however, criticised for human rights abuses regarding freedom, justice and equality, as the military brought its powers to bear in enforcing discipline on Nigerians.



  1. This is the beginning of sharia in Nigeria. Islamization just begins. Every beer joint will be closed. Girls will have to force to wear hijab. Christina girls will be forced to cover. This is how turkey turn Islamic Republic. Welcome to Islamic Republic of Nigeria.

  2. Buhari lacks ideas to move the nation forward. The same WAI that failed and died a natural death over time is being re-introduced into Nigeria. God is failure for imposing Buhari and hardship on Nigerians. The only certificate then corrupt God of the PDP saw in Buhari is anti-corruption. That made him to force Buhari on Nigerians by causing chaos in the PDP.

  3. We are highly indisciplined in Nigeria, that is a fact. More reason we are not getting it right in this country. Just like some people are attacking the fight against corruption, I also expected some people to fight back on the introduction of WAI. We are not just orderly. The major issue confronting our society is simply the fact that abt 70 percent of Nigerians haven’t travelled outside the shore of this country., to see how organized some socities are. May God help us.

  4. Mike, i hail you . you are good citizen of Nigeria that want Nigeria to move forward. people like Dayo & Chinedu are d bad eggs that will not allowe this country to move forward. well, can’t blame them. D two of them no nothing than corruption. evil
