David Umahi, governor of Ebonyi state, says leadership is Nigeria’s major challenge.

Umahi spoke on Friday when he received a report of a judicial panel set up to probe the violent clashes in Effium community in Ohaukwu LGA of the state.

The governor said some leaders do not know why they are in office.

“It is a very complex situation and difficult even to start with the token of N100 million. All over the country the problem we have been having is our leaders,” NAN quoted him as saying.

“We are leaders and we do not think deeply about God bringing us to lead the people and to know that in a crisis of this nature, it is the less privileged, the old and the widow that are killed.”

Umahi said the government would “meticulously” study the report and implement its recommendations.

“It is better to modernise it and if they want to destroy it let them go ahead. It is part of our campaign promises,” he said.

The governor promised to rebuild the Effium market to modern standards before his tenure comes to an end.

“It is better to modernise it and if they want to destroy it let them go ahead. It is part of our campaign promises,” Umahi said.

On his part, Elekwe Omaka, the chairman of the panel, said they received a total of 70 hard copies of written memoranda, while at least 40 persons gave oral testimony to the panel.
