As Nigeria joins the rest of the world to commemorate the world day of social justice 2022, wife of the minister for transportation, Dame Judith Amaechi has called for proactive adoption of inclusion and equal opportunities in Nigeria as means of addressing social injustice in the country.
In a statement signed by the Media Aide to Mrs. Ameachi and made available to Peaknews, Amaechi noted that the peace and humanitarian service award is in honour of her humanitarian activities through her Non-Governmental organisation, Empowerment Support Initiative ESI.
She stated that Nigeria will be a better place if citizens are provided equal opportunities.
Mrs Amaechi, while delivering a lecture at an event put together by stakeholders on social justice, said stakeholders must be intentional in adopting education and empowerment in addressing moral decades, insecurity and unemployment among youths.
“We adopted education as a strategy during the wake of militancy in the Niger Delta, providing tuition free kindergarten education and provided employment, NGOs should be encouraged to complement government efforts in this regard”.
Mrs Amaechi who frowned at parents who abdicate their responsibilities to their family in search of material benefit, said such negligence is already eroding family moral and values.
“We Watch and listen to stories of our children involved in all manner of illicit activities just for material benefit, we must wake up to our responsibility to our children”.
She further enjoined Nigerian youths to acquire vocation skills in line with the challenges of technology and digitalisation to remain relevant in the work place.
