Former Governor of Enugu State, Senator Chimaroke Nnamani, has said that peace and unity among the diverse segments of the country would be guaranteed if deliberate efforts were made to promote equity, justice and fairness in the allocation and management of national resources.

In his goodwill message to Nigerians to usher in the new year, Nnamani, who represents Enugu East Senatorial District in the Senate, noted that perceived injustices in the country could be reversed if political leaders would make equity, justice and fairness the cardinal principle of governance.

He described Nigerians as good followers who need their leaders to lead by example.

He urged leaders at all levels to make conscious efforts to contain the escalating insecurity and restiveness in the land by doing the right thing.

“All these can be accomplished if the allocation and distribution of resources and appointments into key government positions reflect the federal character and geo-political balancing in the country,” he stressed.

He expressed hope that the implementation of the 2022 national budget would correct the previous shortcomings and imbalances in the country.

He said the National Assembly would be more diligent in performing its oversight functions in the new year to ensure that Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) comply with the Appropriation Act.

He reassured his constituents of quality representation, saying that whatever due to them would not be compromised even as he urged them to play their part by remaining law-abiding.
