Politicians sing national unity but ignore equity – Moghalu

Ahead of the next year’s general elections, former presidential candidate of the African Democratic Congress, ADC, Kingsley Moghalu, has accused some of the country’s political elites of hypocrisy, saying they disregard equity and social justice.

 

Moghalu said they mouth off on national unity but easily ignore equity.

 

He disclosed this in a post via his verified Twitter handle.

 

Moghalu said the development, which troubles him, contributes to the problem of nation-building in the country.

 

He, however, advised politicians to learn how to balance their interests with equity and justice, as obtained in developed countries.

 

He wrote, “I understand politics is a game of interests. But if we look at the countries that are developed, we see that they did so by balancing interests with equity and justice. The economic interest of slavery had to give way to civil rights and justice, or else America would be a lie.

 

“In Nigeria, many so-called statesmen and leaders conveniently ignore equity but mouth off on “national unity”. This is a fundamental problem of nation-building in Nigeria. I am really troubled by it.”
