Christian leaders in the Southeast geo-political zone, have asked the federal and state governments to urgently restore equity and fairness in dealing with all segments of the country.
This was contained in a statement jointly signed by the Catholic Archbishop of Owerri, Most Rev. Anthony Obinna; the Anglican Archbishop of Enugu, Most Rev. Emmanuel Chukwuma; the Methodist Archbishop of Umuahia, Most Rev. Chibuzo Opoko.
The statement noted that it was the failure to entrench equity and fairness that was largely responsible for the agitations across the nation.
It added that with the return to constitutional democracy in 1999, Nigerians had looked forward to having a sense of national belonging and the restoration of equity and fairness.
