Delta State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa has expressed worry over the various challenges confronting the Country, calling on the Federal Government to convoke a national dialogue to enable Nigerians talk to one another on the way forward in tackling the issues threatening to wreck the nation’s ships.
Speaking at an inter-denominational thanksgiving service to commemorate the thirtieth anniversary of the creation of Delta State, Governor Okowa said that the State of the nation required urgent but realistic approach that would ensure lasting solution to the various challenges threatening to tear the nation apart.
The Governor said that the Federal Government should not pretend that all was well with the Country as there were too many voices of anger calling for Justice, fairness and equity in the affairs of the nation while urging the government to take steps to listen to the voices without further delay.
He expressed dismay that the nation was still paying lip service to its status as a Federal System as too much power was still concentrated in the centre against the principles of Federalism.
He likened the nation to the human body with many parts, which needed to be healthy for the whole body to function properly saying that it could not be well with the nation if it is not well with the component parts.
