Former Governor of Enugu State, Senator Chimaroke Nnamani has urged governments at all levels to ensure justice, fairness and equity in the affairs of the country in order to give every section of the country a sense of belonging.
This he said was a necessary to guard against disharmony in the country, adding that it would command national loyalty for all citizens.
Senator Nnamani representing Enugu-East at the National Assembly, in a goodwill message to Nigerians marking the New Year Day, expressed optimism that governments at all levels would earn the trust, respect and confidence of the citizens “if fairness and equity become the fundamental norms for policies and programmes.”
Senator Nnamani pointed out that agitations and restiveness in parts of the country could be curtailed and eradicated if infrastructure development and appointments into key offices in government were based on fairness, equity and justice.
He noted that any action or policy of government that tended to offend the sensibilities of citizens would always produce negative results.
Senator Nnamani therefore canvassed an egalitarian society “where every citizen is free to carry out his or her legitimate business in any part of the country without fear of intimidation or molestation.”
The two-time Governor of Enugu State was hopeful that the federal government would, in 2021, provide the needed roadmap to address the inherent imbalances in the affairs of Nigeria.
Senator Nnamani promised that the National Assembly would make laws that were in consonance with the yearnings and aspirations of Nigerians.
He hoped that governments would provide the needed leadership to address the multifaceted problems including insecurity, unemployment and other economic challenges facing the nation in the New Year.
