The ActionAid Nigeria (AAN) has urged all stakeholders to put measures in place to end inequality in the society to meet up with global quest of even development.

The Interim Country Director of the AAN Mrs Funmilayo Oyefusi, made this call on Thursday in Abuja at a one-day dialogue on inequality in Nigeria themed “End the Age of Greed”.
She said the programme is part of the organisations #FightInequality campaign which is in response to the growing neglect of poor and excluded communities by leaders who were elected to champion the causes of the ordinary people.
While saying that said Nigerians cannot wait for government at all levels to change their lives, saying rising inequality is an injustice to the world, she said that inequality was promoted as a result of so much power in the elite and that there was the need to say no to greed from a selected few.
“The way to tackle inequality is to strengthen the power of you and I, the women, the young people, those living with disabilities, the power to fight inequality lies in our hands,” Oyefusi said.
She said women as working class better understand the problem and feel the pain, stressing that they must begin to organise themselves to take action to address the challenges and solutions to inequalities.
On his part the Anti-corruption Advisor, Integrity Organisation Mr Babatunde Oluajo, said citizens must begin to see that corruption affects the foundation of the society.
Oluajo who said that all citizens have a duty to be active toward holding government accountable, said diversion of funds was promoting corruption and underdevelopment, thereby enhancing inequality and widening gap between the rich and the poor.
He said, “Corruption happens every day, people must begin to see that not talking about corruption is a disservice; we must start engaging ourselves on how to move Nigeria forward.”
Also the duo of the Co-Convener Say No Campaign (SNC) Mr Ezenwa Nwagwu and the Chief Executive Officer Nigeria Women Trust Fund (NWTF) Mrs Funke Baruwa, called for a multi-stakeholder engagement to change the narratives of reducing inequality, social injustice and women empowerment at all levels.
