Speaking at the occasion, Mr Famosaya expressed disappointment in the way some citizens handled the national nlag and the Naira.

He said citizens from other countries shows great respect for theirs, therefore, suggesting a stiffer penalty against violators of rules guiding national identity symbols.

They however use the opportunity to call on the government to do more in sensitizing citizens on the importance of the national flag and enforce the laws guiding the handling of Nigeria currency.
