JUST IN: IPOB rejects creation of Orlu State, renews call for Referendum

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has rejected moves by the House of Representatives to create another state in the South-East.

In a statement signed by its Spokesman, Emma Powerful, the group stated that creating a new state will only cause more confusion and instability in the region.

The statement read; “We don’t want more state in Igboland; creating more state in Igboland means creating more confusion and hatred among the Ndigbo. The already existing states have not been well managed by Nigeria and now they want to create more confusion.”

“The cost of governance is increasing on a daily basis in Nigeria; certainly, the new state will not be well managed like others.”

“Most of the existing states in the country are not viable and they want to add more confusion and problems.”

“The creation of more states is not our problem. All we want is a total referendum to determine whether the Ndigbo would like to remain in Nigeria or not. The Ndigbo want total freedom and that is what we insist on.”
