Ohanaeze begs Buhari to create more States in South East
The Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has begged President Muhammadu Buhari to endorse an immediate creation of states and Local Government Areas within the South East geo-political region.
The Apex Igbo group via a statement by its spokesman, Chuks Ibegbu, told the President to direct the bill to the National Assembly, adding that Ndigbo are meant to incur huge losses for having the least number of states and local government areas in Nigeria.
Igbegbu said: “these losses are unquantifiable. In monetary terms, its more than two trillion Naira annually.
“Everything in Nigeria is shared on the basis of states and local governments and we have the least in this scenario.”
“Do you know what we miss by having the least number of local governments and states in Nigeria?
“Whether recruitment into the Army, admission in higher institutions, employment in the public service, etc, Igbo are the least.
