Governor Arthur Ifeanyi Okowahas asked President Muhammadu Buhari to convoke a national dialogue where all issues facing the country will be addressed.

He asked the president to ensure that powers are devolved to state governments and resources kept at their disposal for development.

The governor made the call during a special thanksgiving service in celebration of the thirtieth anniversary of the State.

While noting that there are too many voices of anger calling for justice, fairness and equity in the country, Governor Okowa said the President must take steps to listen to such voices.

“We are still a nation where so much power rests at the Centre with the Federal Government and I believe that it is not right and it is time for more powers to be devolved to the states and more money and resources given to states.

“Nigeria will be better for it if we restructure but the greatest challenge we have is as a result of insecurity and it is pushing many people more into the poverty line.

“As a country, we are troubled and there are so many ethnoreligious crises but it’s time for us to sit down and talk otherwise, we may not be able to continue as a nation.

“In staying as a nation, we must find solutions to the voices of anger and we must dispassionately look for the opinion leaders in the different parts of Nigeria and speak truth to ourselves.”
