NGO advocates socio-economic justice for poor Nigerians

By Ahmed Ahmed

A non-governmental organization  (NGO), PUSH AFRICA, has advocated for the promotion of socio- economic justice for poor people in Nigeria.

Mrs  Doris Egberamen, founder of the PUSH AFRICA, while briefing journalists on Thursday in Bauchi, said there was also a launch of an initiative tagged, “DO-ONE-THING CAMPAIGN.”

She said that the objective was to focus  attention of prospective leaders who are aspiring to vie for various political offices to give priority  to the raging increase of poor people in the country.

She said that the goals of the  DO-ONE-THING campaign include promotion of socio- economic justice for poor people in Nigeria.

“We are also calling on the government to formulate sustainable programmes and policies to help redress the poverty, unemployment, education, health and housing problems of the poor throughout the country,” she said.

Egberamen added that the objective was to create a platform where poor people could tell their own stories, be agents, participants and beneficiaries of sustainable economic growth in their communities.

“To organize fine minds to highlight and find solutions to the many problems facing the country’s poor.

“To advocate economic and fundamental human rights for poor Nigerians,” she said. She however called on all stakeholders, political leaders, development partners, the media and members of the public to support the campaign to build the state and the country at large.

PUSH AFRICA was launched with a nation-wide initiative to redirect the attention of politicians and policymakers to the urgent challenges posed by escalating poverty in the country.
