19 MORE STATES TO BE CREAYED IN NIGERIA
The ongoing National Conference on Thursday voted for the creation of an additional state for the South East to make it equal in terms of number of states with other zones of the country. After that, eighteen more states will be created in an equal way across all geo-political zones. The new states to be created are:
Aba, which is to be carved out of the present Abia state.
Katagum, to be carved out of the present Bauchi state.
Ijebu, from Ogun state.
Amana, from former Sardauna province.
Apa, from Benue state.
Anioma, from Delta state.
Savanna from Borno state
Etiti, from south East.
Njaba/Anim, from Anambra and Imo states.
Gurara, from Kaduna state.
Ghari, from Kano state.
Adada, New Oyo, from Oyo state.
Orachi, from Rivers state.
Ogoja, from Cross River state.
Kainji, from kebbi and Niger states.
And two other yet to be named states that will be created from South West and South East zones.
Won’t this be more or less an employment opportunity for politicians?
