The man of God spoke at the weekend during this year's Catholic Women Organization of Nigeria(CWON) meeting in Lagos.
The archbishop stated that if someone from the southeast can become the president of Nigeria, it would amount to equity and justice. He pointed out that all other zones, except the southeast, have produced the president of Nigeria.
The clergyman stressed further that true federalism would resolve the unending agitations for self-determination by ethnic nationalities within the country. He asserted that the system of government Nigeria's founding fathers wanted is not being practised.
He spoke further:"The disenchantment of the citizens speaks volume of our dysfunctional system of federalism laced with the Nigerian factor as against the true practice".
Adewale-Martins was worried that many innocent souls have been wasted as a result of disunity and inequality. He therefore admonished women and youths to use their numbers to make a difference. The man of God also urged stakeholders in the Nigerian political space to always ensure that good people emerge as flag bearers.
