Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi has advised people to prioritise equity in a way that equal treatment will be given to all.

Mr Umahi said this in Abakaliki on Sunday during an interdenominational thanksgiving church service to mark Nigeria’s 62nd independence and 26th anniversary of the state.

The governor reiterated that in the interest of peace, fair play and justice, Ebonyi North senatorial zone should be allowed to produce the next governor of the state.

He said that power should return to the zone in the aforesaid order for integrity.

Mr Umahi also urged people to play down on party politics, describing equity as the quality of being fair and impartial.

“Anything that is not a product of equity or fairness is bound to fail,” he said.

Mr Umahi stressed the need to show gratitude to God and people who had made an impact in the society.

He commended the founding fathers, elders, council and past governors for their support to the growth of the state.

The governor also commended his wife, Rachael Umahi and the state Chairman, South-East, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev. Father Abraham Nwali, for their contributions to the development of the state.

Earlier, Mr Nwali, also the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Religious and Welfare Matters, called on people to show gratitude, as it increased happiness.
