Biafra: ‘Give South-East Additional State’ – Governor Uzodinma to Constitution Review Committee

Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma has called for the creation of an additional state in the South-East.

Uzodinma said this will help quell the agitation in the region.

He made the call while delivering an address at the South-East Zonal public hearing of the House of Representatives on the review of the Nigerian Constitution.

”Ndigbo will begin to see equity in action when an amended constitution births a sixth state in the southeast.

“The Igbo people seek a constitutional guarantee of their inalienable rights as citizens. A sixth state will go a long way in assuaging the acclaimed marginalisation,” he said.

The governor reiterated that the Igbo people believe in ‘One Nigeria’.

“I call on all Nigerians to take advantage of the opportunity presented by the public hearing to present what they think is necessary for our constitution to be called the peoples’ constitution,” he said.

He commended the committee for going ahead to hold the event in view of the recent security threats in the state.
