The apex Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has lamented that the Southeast geo-political zone has the least number of states and local government areas.
In a statement made by the Ohanaeze spokesperson, Chuks Ibegbu, on Saturday and made available to newsmen, the group stated that the position is affecting the zone in every aspect of governance in the Nigerian nation.
According to the Igbo group, states are used for recruitment in the army, civil service appointments, paramilitary, seats at the national assembly, infrastructure, and allocations, Southeast has the least.
“We are suffering the effect as our youths are left in the lurch,” the group cried out.
The Socio-cultural body also noted that the structural injustice to Ndigbo is even more important to the Igbo’s than the Presidency, though the Presidency is the right of Ndigbo.
Ohanaeze called on President Muhammadu Buhari to send an executive bill to the National Assembly for more states to be created for the Southeast immediately before the expiration of his tenure.
