“We must begin to realize that every strata of the society counts, we must listen and accommodate all views, whether they are poor, whether they are Igbo, Hausa, Muslims or Christians.
“An inclusive society must have the institutions, structures and processes that empower local communities, professional associations, artisans, so that they can hold government accountable.
“It also requires the participation of all groups in society, including traditionally marginalized groups such as ethnic minorities and indigenous populations in decision making processes,” the governor said.
