Soludo: More Than Half Of Anambra People Live Outside State by ghettokid1(m): 6:21pm On Jul 02
Gov. Chukwuma Soludo of Anambra State has insisted that more than half of the indigenous population of Anambra live outside the state.
Gov. Chukwuma Soludo of Anambra State has insisted that more than half of the indigenous population of Anambra live outside the state.

Soludo said this while calling on the international community to assist his administration in its bid to build a prosperous and sustainable Anambra.

The former Central Bank Governor made the call when he received a delegation of United Nations Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator in Nigeria at the Governor’s Lodge in Awka.

A statement by Christian Aburime, Soludo’s Press Secretary, said the UN team was led by Mr Marthias Schmale.

Soludo said the active participatory roles of international collaborators were crucial to the development of Anambra and the country in general.

The governor stated that the UN team’s visit was significant for Anambra and his administration in particular, especially at a time when the UN had not had an office in the entire South East for a long time.
According to him, “more than half of the indigenous population of Anambra live outside the state; my administration will soon inaugurate the Anambra Education Council, to further engender qualitative and accessible education.

“We will also establish the Strategy Execution and Evaluation, ‘SEE’ office.”

Anambra is a small state with a very large population. Anambra cannot contain all of Anambra people and all their large companies, estates, offices etc.

Anambra has spilled into many neighbouring states like Delta, Enugu, Imo.

Since the 1940s, Anambra people have been moving into other parts of the world, but they always return, with a lot of prosperity.

E.g Peter Obi
Baba stays in Lagos enjoying Tinubus Lagos.
The werey can’t even live in a Anambra.
He hasn’t even campaigned there for the fear of UGM. Now some mumu want me to vote for a super-failure who can’t live in his Dubai-Anambra that is filled with potholes, backwardness and insecurity. Nah

What do you mean by Anambra cannot contain all Anambra people? Lagos is the smallest state in Nigeria and has a population of over 20 million people with big companies and large estates

Not true sir. I used to think that Igbos are a majority in population and that we have more Igbo outside SE but data has proven otherwise. There are more Igbo living in the 5 Igbo SE states and Anambra is no exception..

My hypothesis is that Igbo population has been inflated. The most emperical data show that 20% of Igbo are domiciled outside the SE, 80% are domiciled within the 5 Igbo SE states and the Igbo population is actually a minority population.

Luckily, numbers do not have emotion. Below are the facts:

1. Due to history, cultural affinity, linguistic spread of the Igbo language and Igbo-speakers, most of this 20% Igbo living outside Igboland will be more in states such as Rivers, Delta, Kogi and Benue that border the 5 Igbo SE states than far away places like Lagos, Kano and Abuja.

2. Data from recent inec voters registration for Osun alone is higher than the total registration in Igbo South East (screenshot below)

3. Satelite image of Aba, Onitsha, Enugu, Ebonyi compared to Ibadan show a small area of dense population https://www.nairaland.com/7186666/aba-ibadan-satellite-picture-aba

4. Data from 2021 JAMB registration show that 447,857 are indigenes of SW states that registered their states of origin as Lagos, Oyo, Osun, Ekiti, Ondo and Ogun for JAMB against 320,306 indigenes of SE that registered their states of origin as Abia, Imo, Enugu, Ebonyi and Anambra. Only 20% (70K out of the 320K) of the JAMB candidates of SE origin live outside the 5 Igbo SE states.

5. Demograhics data of internet subscribers also support my hypothesis like other demographic data captured with better data capturing tools, https://www.nairaland.com/7203013/states-nigeria-largest-internet-subscribers that validated my hypothesis that Igbo population in SE is inflated and the Igbo are a minority group in terms of population.

6. Data from overall inec voters registration show Igbo among the lowest with the only Igbo state, Anambra state, at the bottom of the top 10 https://nairametrics.com/2022/06/30/top-10-states-with-the-highest-number-of-registered-voters-as-of-june-27-2022/

The politicians knew this reality all along hence no serious effort to canvass for votes aggressively in SE like they do for other zones.

SE may just be same population as states with similar land size as it like Kaduna or Katsina or Oyo and the SE is by far the least populated of all the geopolitical zones.

As things stand now, no serious contender can bank on votes from SE and a serious contender will not get the voting strength incentive from the SE.

The SE is a minority vote region even far behind the minority tribes-dominated SS from these data.

Data from JAMB show the Igbo population is abysmally low, so low that only Imo state featured in the top 10 states with registered indigenes sitting for JAMB and for Igbo dominated schools, the Igbo were no. 4 top for universities with UNN ,No. 8 for polytechnics and no single college of Education in Igboland made it among the top 10 colleges of Education with highest registered JAMB candidates !
https://utmeofficial.com.ng/jamb/jamb-registration-statistics-2020-2021-by-course-universities-polytechnics-nce-and-state-of-origin/

On number of JAMB applicants who are Igbo, Anambra state is the Igbo state with the highest number of registered candidates yet was No. 16 on the list far far behind! And all the JAMB candidates registered for JAMB in the whole of SE just adds up to about the total candidates in Lagos state alone or sum for Oyo and Ogun.

As at now the best and cleanest data indicate that about 80% of Igbo are domiciled in the SE while 20% are domiciled outside the 5 Igbo SE states.

Out of the 320,306 Igbo candidates in the 2020-2021, max.(when you add total candidates that registered for JAMB in those 5 SE states and assume they are all Igbo) only about 250K(~80%)account for candidates that sat for exam in the SE while about 70K(20%) are Igbo candidates who registered outside the SE to represent the total Igbo candidates.
It makes sense because you have more Igbo domiciled in SE than outside SE.


So where is the high Igbo population I used to imagine??

Internet subscribers; low

Inec registration; low

Jamb applicants writing Jamb in SE; low;

Jamb applicants based on State of origin; low

land mass; low
Yet
Analogue Census; High(?)

So all these data conflate to prove that Igbo are a minority group by population but have inflated numbers which call for scientific enquiry.

30 million people can live in Anambra State comfortably.

Certainly, but they have to be poor civil servants and others willing to be squeezed into small flats or rooms, at best high rise buildings. If 30 million people build the types of mansions we see from there on the ground, space will finish.
