Senator Ned Nwoko Calls For The Creation Of Anioma State As The 6th SE State by pazienza(m): 4:16pm On Jun 10
The Need for the Creation of Anioma State to Balance Representation in the South East

The creation of Anioma state is both urgent and compelling. This proposal addresses the longstanding imbalance in the geopolitical distribution of states in Nigeria. The South East geopolitical zone currently has five states, unlike its counterparts, except for the North West, which has seven states. This disparity results in an imbalance of representation and resources, with the South East having only 15 lawmakers compared to the 18 lawmakers of other zones in the senate. This inequity affects legislative representation and the distribution of national resources, perpetuating a longstanding injustice.

I am presenting a bill for the creation of Anioma state to correct this historical oversight. Anioma is composed of nine local government areas, six of which are rich in oil and gas resources. The region also boasts significant human capital, making it a viable and sustainable candidate for statehood. Creating Anioma state is not just about increasing the number of states; it is about ensuring fair representation and resource allocation for the South East.

The call for Anioma state has widespread support from various stakeholders. The Anioma socio-cultural group, Izu Anioma, and the Pan Igbo cultural organization, Ohanaeze Indi Igbo, have both been vocal in their advocacy for this cause. The political class in Anioma, including traditional rulers led by the late Asagba of Asaba, Obi (Prof) Chike Edozien, have also consistently supported the creation of Anioma state. They have held numerous meetings, including discussions with former President Olusegun Obasanjo, to voice their consensus.

The creation of Anioma state is a crucial step towards achieving justice and equity for the South East. With the majority of stakeholders in agreement, it is time to act and bring Anioma state into existence, correct the past imbalances and ensure fair representation in national affairs.

Yes it is.
The SE Senate and house of representatives should now have a consultation meeting with those in Delta North including Igbanke, to work on actualising this noble plan.
Ohaneze Ndiigbo should be the ones to anchor this meeting and make it happen.
The Orlu state agenda is good, but bringing Anioma back home( reunited with kin and kiths in SE) where they belong, and allowing the minorities to move capital of the remnants of Delta state to Warri, is a
win-win situation for all involved.

Anioma is rich in crude oil and gas. Asaba is merging with Onitsha to form a mega metropolis.
The state is brimming with human and natural resources and is very much viable.

Ndiigbo let's push and make this happen!

No disunity.
Orlu state proposal is good, but Anioma is better!
Orlu will have to take a back stage for a greater cause which Anioma represents.
Anioma reunification with SE has been on the front burner since 1939 when Bernard Burdillion the then British administrator of Nigeria divided the old Southern Protectorate into Western and Eastern region and ended up adding Western Igbo to Western region.
Western Igbo kings protested against this injustice and wrote Bernard Burdillion to return them to Eastern region with their kin and kiths, but the British didn't hearken to this call.
Since then the likes of Osadebey Dennis and other Western Igbo leaders have been working on this.
I'm glad Ned Nwoko has stepped up to take up the mantle of this noble and divine task (. ), Ndiigbo in SE must do our bit. We must do proper consultations with Ned Nwoko, get other voices in Anioma on the round table and make this dream a reality.
It's the dawn of a new era! Ife ga adi MMA!

It must be noted that the clamour for reunification of Anioma known as Western Ibo in the past started in 1939 and not today.

The backlash that came with Ibo tag post civil war as demonstrated in Asaba massacre made many of our Western Ibos take a tactical cover from Ibo tag to save their lands from minority neighbours all around them and from FG persecution.
It's been over 50yrs post civil war, alot have changed, Igbos are not longer a weak group, we have recovered all we lost and are now standing strong again.
Our Western Igbo brothers now know it's time to come back home.

"Our Igbo origin has never been in doubt before and after Civil War. Anioma people were known as Western Igbos before the Amalgamation of Nigeria in 1914. And in 1939, the Obi of Agbor, Obi of Idumuje-Ugboko and the Obi of Aboh, for themselves and the entire Western Igbo people, petitioned the Colonial Administration for carving out the Western Igbos from their Kits and Kins East of the Niger. Consequently, in 1956, Western Igbo leaders organized the AMA1 conferences where it was resolved that the answer to the political problems of the Western Igbos was to create a West Niger Igbo State with the Headquarters at ALIDINMA. The agitation for the creation of the West Niger Igbo State assumed the name ANIOMA after the civil war".

This makes a lot of sense and would certainly be welcome. Even if Nigeria were to be restructured into regionalism based on the current geopolitical zones, then Anioma should be in the South East Region.

As an Anioma indigene, my dream has always been to join my kins in the south east.

The ekwumeku resistance was the beginning of the Balkanization of igbo land. The British added us to the then western region because the guerrilla warriors were traveling across the Niger to hide from the colonial British after they attack.

They British knew fully well that we are Igbos because they themselves added us to the 1903 map of Igboland.

That said any Anioma person that believes that they are Edo is free to travel there and live.

No inch of Igboland will go to outsiders.
