Governor Oshiomhole made the appeal while delivering a speech which captured issues of unemployment and inequality at the fourth annual Zik’s Lecture Series of the Faculty of Social Sciences of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University in Awka, the Anambra State capital.
He was of the opinion that Nigerian leaders should try not to create a feeling of inequality in the minds of the poor from birth.
Governor Oshiomhole urged them to create an environment that would enable every citizen to thrive, irrespective of their status, adding that poverty was a threat to prosperity everywhere.
A Ugandan motivational speaker, Ethan Musolini, also said that economic empowerment and demonstration of practical skills should be celebrated as they were the heart of sustainable entrepreneurship, stressing that it would open the vista for creation of more jobs and finding solutions to problems at a profit.
Speeches delivered by the Vice Chancellor of the University, Professor Joseph Ahaneku, the former Special Adviser on Political Matters to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Senator Ben Obi and the Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, hinged on bridging the gap between the rich and the poor.
They also tasked the leaders on providing the structures that would encourage enterprise and thus, exterminate unemployment and inferiority complex among Nigerians.
The forum was organised to encourage quality interaction and conversation amongst leading scholars, students, and individuals towards the development of Nigeria and the African continent while keeping the memory of the ideals of Nigeria’s Pan African leader, late Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe alive.
