Nigerian leaders are to ensure that governance gets to the grassroots because it is one of the tools and ways that democracy can thrive in the country as well as adopt an inclusive participatory government where everybody is a stakeholder.

This is the view of notable Nigerians during a leadership series event at Enugu State.

While speaking to channels television, former information minister, Dr.Walter Ofonagoro, disclosed that regional insecurity can be brought to a halt when the leaders co-operate with the government in authority to fish out those involved in causing insurgencies within their locality as it is expected that as a leader they should be aware of what happens within their communities.

Dr. Walter hinted that despite the enormous problems been experienced in the nation that Nigeria is not a failed state if all the leaders can perform their responsibilities in a patriotic and selfless manner.

According to Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe representing Abia south, participatory governance would assist in solving most of the challenges facing the country if all stakeholders are allow to be part of the government irrespective of status, class in the society.
