Borgu people in Niger, Kebbi and Kwara states, yesterday met President Muhammadu Buhari demanding for the creation of Borgu state.

The delegation was led by the Emir of Borgu, Alhaji Muhammed Haliru Dantoro, to the Presidential Villa Abuja. They were in the Villa to congratulate the president on his re-election.

Top Borgu traditional rulers and politicians including the spokesperson of the Senate, Senator Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi (APC, Niger) were on the delegation.

The emir, said the Borgu people in Niger, Kwara, and Kebbi are united in their collective resolve for the movement of the creation of Borgu State.

“It is our belief that if states will be created by this administration or subsequent administration, Borgu state should be considered because of the abundance of economic potentials needed to move Nigeria forward,” he said.

He also requested for the funding and strengthening of HYPPADEC to tackle the unique challenges facing communities, hosting hydroelectric installations across the country, of which Borgu community is an integral part.

The emir also called for the establishment of a Naval formation along the banks of Kainji Lake, to effectively secure the nation’s international waterways with neighbouring countries.

“Establishment of export-oriented processing factories in major Borgu border towns particularly Yashikira and Babanna, to take advantage of the security and relative peace available across Borgu Kingdom.

“The establishment of an international border market at Babanna as planned will open up the agrarian communities of Yashikira, Gwanara, llesha, Okuta and Kishi through good linkage roads for the movement of farm produce to the international market.

Responding, the president assured the Borgu people that he would work hard to address the challenges facing the country.

On the request, the president said: “I understand your shopping list. I hope the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) has taken note. Since I’m not looking forward to another election, I will try to do what I can but I assure you the request of infrastructure in your domain would be looked into.”

They have started again. The ones we have especially in the North, what is their worth??. Most of those northern states are liabilities. They just go and sit down joor. Instead we should even merge some states together.

The 36 states we have already aren't sustainable and can't pay salaries. Yet these rag heads are calling for more states so they can extend their electoral advantage over the south. Northerners can die for power at the detriment of good life.

Creating states requires a 2/3 majority I'm the National Assembly, as well as a 2/3rd majority in the State houses of assembly before the new state can be created.

Inasmuch as the Borgu people are enthusiastic about new state, Buhari can't do anything.

Democracy has many flaws, and one of them is the legislative provision of state creation.

If these men knew how difficult it is to create states under democratic settings, they wouldn't come close to Buhari with that request. grin

Power to create states rests in the national and state assemblies, not in the hands of the president

There is no problem with state creation but let those states that are carved out share allocation with the states they are carved out from simple.
Re: Borgu Leaders Meet Buhari, Demand State Creation (photos) by Jiang(m): 4:51pm On Mar 15
Hell no!!!!

Can't they see how much money we waste on those useless Senators & over bloated civil service,

Henceforth no more state creation till each of the 36 states can fend for themselves without help from the center

INFACT WE NEED TO MERGE SOME MORE STATES SEF, Lets just go back to northern region, Southern region, Western region & Eastern region

Borgo people I say.

Back in 1999, a group of people approached Obasanjo with request for Ijebu state.

At the time, state agitation was at an all time high.

Once Obasanjo informed his guests about the constitutional provisions, the cry for states died down
