Abuja – A Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Chief Femi Falana, on Wednesday in Abuja called for social justice to bridge the gap between the rich and the poor in the country.

Falana, who made the call at the ongoing National Conference, stressed the need to solve the problem of education, health, unemployment and other issues that directly affect the common man.

He said the high level of instability was because the few rich people live affluently and comfortable lives, while the majority wallow in penury.

According to him, unless the disparity that exists between them is closed up, Nigeria will continue to face numerous challenges.

“There are forces of destabilisation in the country due to the huge gap that exist between the rich and the poor.

“The disenchanted youths are challenging the corporate existence of Nigeria,” he said.

He called on the delegates to play their role at the conference to reposition the country for effective governance. (NAN)
