Equal Opportunity Guarantees National Development – – Osakwe

By on July 11, 2018

Mr Felix Osakwe, a United Nations ambassador with FJO Foundation, has said that it would be hard for a country to pursue national development when it could not guarantee equal opportunities for its citizens.

Osakwe said this through his Director General, Mr Olakunle Johnson, who spoke in his office, Oko Afo, Badagry, on Tuesday.

He noted that the spread of even development should not be limited to the Nigeria largest cities alone, saying that people in the rural areas should also enjoy Democratic dividends through provision of necessary infrastructures.

” There is no sense in pursuing national development when we cannot guarantee every Nigerians equal opportunities.

“So long as the spread of progress is limited to Nigeria largest cities while the rural communities are left without basic necessities such as good roads , power ,healthcare , we can not call our country a great nation .”

As the 2019 general elections draw nearer, Osakwe explained that Nigerians were still far from the desired changed they clamored for.

“What Nigerians are seeing presently in terms of road, electricity , power and healthcare are not what they are expecting both from the State and Federal government.

“There is need for Nigerians to realise that to get the needed change all of us must change our perception about how politics is being played but pay more attention to good governance that will promote equal opportunities.

“Opportunities where people in the rural areas can benefit immensely from the basic necessity of life, ” he said.

He, therefore, called on Nigerians  particularly the youths to actively involved in politics  so that they would be able to choose preferred candidates both at the state and federal level in the 2019 general elections.
