Nnamani urges reconciliation to foster national unity
Former Governor of Enugu State, Chimaroke Nnamani, has canvassed reconciliation among Nigerians to build a national consensus as a panacea to the socio-economic and political challenges facing the country.
Nnamani, who represents Enugu East Senatorial District, said the many problems bedeviling the nation demand collective efforts to effectively address them.
He stated this in his goodwill message to nation on the sidelines of this year’s Christmas celebration, yesterday, in Abuja, in which he urged Nigerians, especially the clergy to pray for divine intervention since the security situation and other challenges seemed to defy human solution.
He, however, enjoined Nigerians not to undermine the essence of Christmas with unrestrained merriment, adding: “With God and sincerity of purpose on the part of government and the citizens, all things are possible.
“Like Jesus Christ, let us remember the poor and the less-privileged in our midst and that whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters, you did for Him.”
Nnamani added that whatever good done to the poor or less-privileged would help lift society and ultimately make the country a better place for all.
He urged religious leaders to preach peace, tolerance and togetherness in the country, as an elixir for harmonious relationship among various religious adherents.
Nnamani urged government at all levels to be guided by equity, justice and fairness in the administration and management of the country’s diversity.
He wished Nigerians a merry Christmas and prosperous New Year 2022, pointing out that restiveness and agitations in some parts of the country were manifestations of a sense of exclusion or marginalisation in the scheme of things.
