This is a step in the right direction. They have to do more in creating awareness about their existence. Other Igbo sociocultural groups need to reach out to them to see how they can be represented in scheme of things of the Igbo nation.

Why put them in Benue? So the controversy could continue?

I am saying this because certain people from certain part of the country(including Simplyleo) do not believe the Igbos are in indigenous in Benue and Kogi states

They made igbo to be so big in 3 zones , south east , south south and middle belt...

Igbo can be found in 12 states

5 states of south East (100%)
5 states of Niger Delta in huge numbers
2 states of Middle Belt (Kogi and Benue )

This is what people would be getting used to

Ohaneze should be doing that and also a lot of intervention work need to be done

Good, more awareness should be encouraged by ohaneze to other groups unjustly lumped with in other states...

Now i believe this give credence to the fact that igbos are not confined with only 5 states as perpetuated by some ignorant Automated MuMus we have here in nairaland....
