Apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has asked the President Muhammadu Buhari regime to send an executive bill to the National Assembly for the immediate creation of additional states and more local governments in the South-East.
In a statement by its spokesman, Chuks Ibegbu, Ohanaeze decried the losses Ndigbo incurred for having the least number of states and local government areas in Nigeria.
These losses are unquantifiable. In monetary terms, it more than two trillion naira annually he says.
Everything in Nigeria is shared based on states and local governments, and we have the least in this scenario.
