Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, has revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari government has plans to create an additional state in the South-East.
He made this known when the Ohaneze Ndigbo, Lagos branch, paid him a visit at the Governor’s Lodge, Amawbia, Anambra State, on Wednesday.
The governor said:
“I’m in good terms with the President. He has good plans for the South-East, contrary to the perception of some people. He has emotional feeling that the South-East ought to have an additional state”.
The Ohanaeze group led by its leader Nnamdi Nwigwe reacted to the statement made by Obiano.
“We are particularly happy with your position on appreciating President Mohammadu Buhari-led administration’s good gestures to the people of the South-East region and Anambra State in particular.
“The completion of Zik Mausoleum, which is a national monument, the ongoing Second Niger Bridge, road projects and other infrastructures lay credence to the fact that the Buhari administration has not forgotten the region,” the Igbo group stated.
