Orlu State Creation: An invitation to chaos – OYC

Orlu State Creation: An invitation to chaos - OYC

The youth wing of the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide (OYC), have described the proposal to create Orlu State out of the current Imo State as unacceptable.

The bill sponsored by the member representing Ideato Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Ugochinyere Ikeagwuonu, has already passed the first reading.

 

National President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council, Okwu Nnabuike, in a statement, urged the National Assembly to jettison any plan to create Orlu State.

Okwu, who described it as an invitation to chaos in the South East, said that it negates the spirit of equity and justice.

 

He said that whereas the South East is desirous of an additional state to be at par with other regions, the proponents of Orlu State are championing a selfish and divisive agenda, which would only worsen the cries of marginalisation in the zone.

“The National Confab report, which was endorsed by Nigerians from across the country, remains a guide towards the total reform of Nigeria, including state creation.”

“In that report, there was a clear mention of Etiti State, which has a representation of every part of the South East. There is nothing like the Orlu State in the report.”

 

The Ohanaeze youths noted that the proposed Etiti State encompasses parts of the five existing states of the region.
