The head of Ohanaeze stated that the South-East is the only geopolitical zone in the nation with five states out of a total of six. According to him, the region has lost billions of dollars as a result of this problem. He claimed that legislative representation and political appointments had also suffered as a result of the losses.

In the statement which was signed by Chief Iwuanyanwu, he said that this issue has been raised at various political conferences, and some Nigerians at the conferences agreed that it was not fair for the South-East to have only five states, and recommended that additional state should be created in the region. He lamented that till today nothing has been done about that.

He added that since then, he has been drawing the attention of the federal government to the need to create another state in the South-East.

He said, “This situation has cost us billions of financial losses. It has also cost us losses in both political appointments and legislative representations. In 2005 and 2014, we raised this issue at various political conferences.

“All men of goodwill at the conference agreed that it was unfair for the South-East to have only five states and recommended that an additional state be created in the South-East but up till today, this has not been done. I have severally drawn the attention of the Federal Government to this injustice against the South-East.

According to the report by Vanguard, Chief Iwuanyanwu added, “This statement should serve as a notice that if no step is taken by the Federal Government and the National Assembly towards the creation of an additional state in the South-East, I will have no choice than to go to court.”

Chief Iwuanyanwu also called on the Igbos to support the administration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and added that when Tinubu was governor of Lagos State, he was nice to the Igbos in Lagos. CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
