NIGERIA @ 60: Why Sen Nnamani Advocates For Equity And Justice
Senator Chimaroke Nnamani, former Governor of Enugu State and Senator representing Enugu East Senatorial District in the Senate, has said that unless that justice, equity and fairness prevail in the polity, Nigeria unity continue to be a mirage.
Allocation of resources, he insisted, should be done fairly and justly, saying it is the panacea to continued peace and unity of the country.
His word, “this is the cardinal principle leaders at all levels must apply in management and administration of the society.”
Nnamani said this in his goodwill message to Nigerians to mark the nation’s 60th Independence anniversary. He bemoaned the socio- economic and political malaise bedeviling the country and believed that it can be remedied if Nigerians work together with equity and justice as their watchwords.
The lawmaker was optimistic that the hope of a united and prosperous country envisaged at independence on October 1, 1960 can still be achieved “if we work as a team like a people with a common purpose and mission.”
The senator lamented over the incessant ethno-religious conflicts in parts of the country, the unabating insecurity and the infrastructural deficits that have continued to retard the nation’s growth and maintained that the shortcomings are redeemable “if we can return to the drawing boards and fashion out a workable blueprint that will guarantee all citizens freedom and security in any part of the country without fear of intimidation or molestation.”
