Create Another State In S-east, Ohanaeze Chief Tells FG by Africonji: 9:19am On Oct 04, 2016

OWERRI—A call has again gone to the Federal Government, to “begin the process of creating additional state in the South East geo-political zone and bring the zone at par with others of the country.” The Imo State Chairman of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Dr. Ezechinyere Chukwu, made the passionate appeal after inaugurating the Ehime Mbano Chapter of the Igbo body.

“The creation of an additional state in the South East zone will assuage frayed nerves and reduce agitation against marginalization,” Chukwu said. While recalling that the creation of an additional state in the zone was recommended by the 2014 National Conference, Chukwu however lamented that the non-creation of the sixth state was inequitable and most unfair. “The non-creation of another state from the South East is inequitable, unfair and crass display of double standards, as what is good to the goose is also good for the gander,” Chukwu said. In his own remarks, the Chairman, Ehime Mbano Council of Traditional Rulers, Eze Emmanuel Ibechi, expressed sadness over what he called “lack of respect, honour and recognition of royal fathers in public and private domain”. Eze Ibechi urged the leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo at all levels, to “encourage Igbos to look homewards, ensure the establishment of industrial concerns and development of their place of origin, contrary to what obtains now”.

Are they no longer hiding behind the retired scAvengers to make demands and blackmail the government into granting their demands cheesy?

How can you ask for regionalism in one breath and then beg for a new state in the next breath?

How can you seek secession yet wail for an additional state in one Nigeria?

Confusion galore.

If I was to choose between another state creation in SE geopolitical zone and Biafra, I will choose Biafra any day. Another state won't end igbo marginalization in Nigeria. We need independence. Ohaneze are sellouts.

We should be talking about dissolving states and creation regions, they are still talking about creating more states. We have moved past state creation
