Stop Lying. Delta state has more population than Anambra state.
And Edo state population is slightly less than Anambra.

Both in. Population and Landmass, SE is suppose to be 2 or 3 states maximum. They don't even deserve 5 states.

The same wikipedia put the population of Anambra at 11 million people

It does not work like that. The 5 states are actually among the tiniest states in Nigeria. Population and economics, they are smaller than majority of the other regions. Going by your logic, should SW have 10 states? Akoko Edo is culturally similar to the Akoko’s on the Ondo side, so they should add them as a state to SW? Kogi west should be 8th state in the SW, Kwara state should be 9th state, Itsekiri should also be added to become10th state? It’s not as simple.
Have you been to egbema before? There is egbema rivers state, egbema imo state. Same everything, same culture, same people etc. Why did they carve them out to rivers state?

You mumu. So before the states United where they not administered as different countries/State? The texas in question was part of the country called Mexico before the Americans took it after the war.

They are showing you proof and yoh are still arguing. Why not bring your own proof and argue with it instead of rambling like a rabid dog on the internet. Anambra,Abia, Enugu and imo are far more populated than most states in the SW and SS. Apart from states like Rivers and Delta with indegenous Igbo population, no other states in the SS is that populated

That is also true for Enugu state , Ebonyi state and Anambra State. They generate far less than what they get from Federal govt.

States that generate a bit is Imo and Abia state because they produce some oil even though small.

I know people think Anambra is a significant oil producing state because of the small oil in the border of Enugu, Anambra and Kogi. The oil production from there is very insignificant. Not even up to Lagos state oil production which is also insignificant. The production is so small that they are not even considered as part of NDDC. (only Abia and IMO are in NDDC).


When it comes to Economic activity, don't confuse the fact that Igbos are enterprising as south east generate money to the FG.

Igbos are enterprising as individuals. And majority of them make money by leaving South East and not by staying there. Most of the money is by trading.

As a region, they don't contribute anything significant to federation account (except IMO and Abia state).[/s]

I'm still asking my Yoruba friends what SW actually contributes to Nigeria.80% of Nigerian earnings is from crude oil while the remaining one is mainly from taxes. States like info,Oyo, ekiti,oshun are dead states that can't stand and are very poor state with nothing going on there. I can't remember the last time most of those states in the west commissioned any capital project. The governors over there in the west have to even borrow to pay salaries.

When Nigeria divides,I wonder how the west will survive on their own without the oil money. If not for Nigeria factor,SW would be another poor Benin and Togo countries who are still being controlled by France.

Go to NPC site and see if its not same figures.
Until an official census or estimation of Nigeria's population is done, the official figures given by NPC remains the gold standard.

You can assume all you can.. Delta State remains more populated than the 2 by 2 market called Anambra grin grin


Come to think of it, thesame Wikipedia figure you were pointing to as your proof for 11 million is now fake since this time same Wikipedia didn't favour your argument.

Now you are displaying crass stupidi**. With all the acclaimed millionaires and billionares your states and towns still look shitty. Your people can't live in your billionaire towns/states, but run to the SS for better life.

You see your life?


Goto Rivers State there are over 4 million Ibos from the SE who rather die in Rivers than go to their states of Abia, Imo, Anambra, Ebonyi and Enugu.

Go to Delta, there are over 2 million Ibos from the SE who rather die in Delta than go back to the SE.

Go to Akwa Ibom there are over 1.5 million Ibos who rather die in Akwa Ibom than go back home to SE

Go to Edo there are over 1.5 million Ibos who rather die there than go back to SE.

Go to Cross River there are over 1.4 million Ibos who rather die there than go back to SE

Go to Bayelsa there are over 500 thousand Ibos who rather die in BY than go back to SE.

With all the millions and billions your home state still remains a shithole that even your people keep running away from.

How do you create more states from states like this? I even think the entire five states should be merged together as one or two at most.
Enough of wasting resources biko.
But their GDP is bigger than North East twice

So what's your point

Imo state GDP alone is almost same as the entire north east ...so ?

You still don't understand his question. Who made it 5 states? Isn't southern Benue suppose to be part of South Eastern state? same with parts of Rivers and most annoying the Anioma that naturally should be a state and SE states....

who divide the states in zones? was it an agreement ? so there is a fundamental problem like what the op is asking

In 2006 obasanjo wanted to give the South East an extra state to balance things up between the North and south , so the North would then have 19 States and the south 18 States

obasanjo only asked the south east Leaders where they wanted the Capital of the New state to be so their Region would also have 6 States

Can you believe that they fought themselves over the proposed new state and its Capital location until President Onasanjo left Office
That was how a once in a generation opportunity to get an extra south east state was Squandered

obasanjo that almost Single handedly installed Yaradua as President was in a Position to give the south east an extra state he only wanted the leaders to agree on where the New state would be and it’s Capital

16 Years later Ohaneze is still Crying that the south east need an extra state to balance up with the other Regions
