Nigeria’s economic injustice, biggest threat to nation’s unity, says Ozigbo

The immediate past Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Transnational Corporation (Transcorp Plc), Chief Valentine Ozigbo, has said that the biggest challenges threatening the foundation of people’s existence as one Nigeria is economic injustice.

Ozigbo in a statement issued by his media aide, Aziza Uko, yesterday, to mark 2020 nation’s Democracy Day, called on leaders at all levels to take a look at the various calls for the restructuring of the country’s economic model to create a more inclusive economy that would work for every Nigerian irrespective of tribe, gender, or religion.

According to him, though the democratic experiment had not been perfect, there are still aspects of it that ought to be celebrated.

“As we celebrate another year in this democratic journey, it is only proper that we take a moment to ponder on our recent past, evaluate the present, and strategize on the future of our dear country,” Ozigbo said.
In several ways, and on several fronts, we have overcome adversities and challenges. We have come out of these challenges stronger and determined to build a secure, stable, equitable, prosperous, and democratic Nigeria.

“That would be one right step in forging a strong, indivisible nation based on equity, fairness, and justice,” he said.
He advised Nigerians to deepen engagement and investment in the preservation of the country’s democracy, adding that though there are weaknesses in the political system, democracy has come to stay in Nigeria.

Ozigbo also urged Nigerians to “look and think deep” towards rebuilding the nation “community by community”.

It was gathered that Valentine Ozigbo, recently resigned from his role as the top boss of Transcorp Plc to focus on a career in public service.
He is one of the leading aspirants in the forthcoming Anambra 2021 gubernatorial elections on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) platform.
