Based on economic viability(which is Paramount) the entire north west and north east should be just 2 states..
So much economic waste in those regions.

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

This is the problem when we are raising youngsters who were not taught history in school. Otherwise you won't be asking these questions.

You obviously don't know anything about colonial govt, protectorates, amalgamation, constitutional conferences and regional govts

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.


Don't even bother about Akoko-Edo they are part and parcel of Benin. Yorubas in Kwara have similar culture to the Hausas does that make them Hausas or Fulanis? If you like continue wailing it will change nothing.


By the way yes Igbos should have 6 States, Igbos must rise and fix this open biased action against them.
