A nongovernmental organisation, 1001+ Voices Initiative for People Empowerment, has implored government at all levels to consider the plight of ordinary Nigerians and improve the human development index of the citizens.
Speaking on behalf of the group, Mr Owodiong Idemeko, leader of the group, on Tuesday in Uyo told newsmen that ordinary citizens in the country were passing through tough times in the past few years, due to harsh economic situations.
The group said that God has endowed Nigeria with abundant human and natural resources, that if well harness would be enough to take care of its citizens.
“We implored the governments to consider the plight of the ordinary Nigerian and stop paying lip service on the urgent need to improve the human development index of the citizens.
“By investing in the economy, upgrading education, health care, agriculture, ensuring job creation and infrastructure development among other needs.”
The group lauded President Muhammadu Buhari for finally upholding the sanctity of June 12, 1993 presidential election and replacing May 29 with the date as Nigeria’s Democracy Day.
The group commended governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State for aligning with the democratic aspirations of Nigerians to establish and run a government that guarantees and protects the interest of the people.
