Photo: New map of Nigeria as proposed by delegates of National Confab

As a follow up to their July 3rd recommendation for 18 additional states to be created to bring the number of states in Nigeria to 54, members of the National conference Committee on Political Restructuring and Forms of Government jointly headed by Ike Nwachukwu & Mohammed Kumalia have released a copy of the proposed a new map of Nigeria with the additional states added. (pictured above). Continue to see the newly approved states as seen on the map...

Apa from Benue,
Edu from Niger
Kainji from Kebbi state
Katagum from Bauchi,
Savannah from Borno,
Amana from Adamawa,
Gurara from Kaduna,
Ghari from Kano,
Etiti from South East,
Aba from Abia,
Adada from Enugu,
Njaba from Anambra and Imo,
Oil River from Rivers state
Anioma from Delta state,
Ogoja from Cross River State
Ijebu from Ogun State
Ose state from Edo
New Oyo State from the present Oyo State

The closing ceremony for the CONFAB will take place tomorrow August 21st where the final report adopted by the delegates on all matters discussed will be handed to President Jonathan for consideration and approval. I hope president Jonathan ignores this proposed bill of additional states...

In my opinion, I think it's ridiculous!
The many more states will increase the division and tribalism we are fighting already. Don't see any positive need for all the states.

BONARIO NNAGS said...

Creation,of more states to me is not the solution to our developmental problems. They ought to have canvassed for more autonomy to local governments,creation of more local governments and the strengthening of the existing ones.
With local governments functioning effectively and free from the interference of state governments,there won't be need for these new proposed states.

~BONARIO~says so via NOKIA LUMIA

As in eeeeh! Dis creation of new state is highly unnecessary. We have better things to look into than this stuff.

How dare you want the President to ignore the additional states?. The states are fine. They also recommend the scrapping of LGAs. That is also fine.

Jenny said...

Misplaced priorities..This shouldnt be the issue at hand, considering the health and security challenges in the country at d moment. I dont support this either.

Uche said...

This is one of those times I agree with you. What kinda names are these biko? Anyway, it's the primary school children I pity. Dem never learn 36 finish, more don dey pile.

olumide abiodun said...

Lol! So when someone asks me where I'm from I will have to say Ijebu Sate? This will take a while to get used to if it is approved. And where did they name a state Etiti, when there is already a state name Ekiti. And where name a state Edu, when there is a Edo state? Plenty confusion.

The newly proposed state should not be dependent of Federal Government and they should present to the house what is their source of internal generated revenue.
I do not see the need for creation of additional state in this country. The Niger Delta people should kick against it cos they will be using their oil money to run all theses newly created state. This is not what we need in this country.

shattap there! we haven't managed the ones we have already, they are talking of new ones. instead of new states they should find unifying elements not split Nigerians more. bastards looking for more avenues to chop allocations.

So for me state creation is a yes.

For the sake of justice and fairness, Nigeria needs only 1 additional state and that should be for the South East to be at par with other zones@6 states per zone.....Shikena.

This is absolutely insane. I love my Nigeria the way it is. if they add more states, it will bring more problems of tribalism and there will be more restiveness in Nigeria than there already is. Well, we just have to leave Nigeria in God's hands. "For everything there is a time and season under the sun" Eph 3... But there really is nothing positive in creating more states. it's a waste of time.

My own is 'nobody should ever ask students or pupils to draw this map ooooo', any teacher that gives my daughter/son this herculean task will hear from me. Rubbish!

Jennykiss said...

Hmm...

One of the ways we continue to allow our cowardice overwhelm our ability to stand up and positively determine our fate...

with all the unsolved problems weighing the country down, a bunch of Jobless-overpaid-uneducated-clowns decide to use our hard-earned resources to develop such tasteless and unnecessary list of states.

I continually try not to imagine where we are headed.

#NONSENSE!

America is 10times bigger than nigeria geographically, america only has 51 states, and Nigeria is heading towards creating 54 statesI, pls give me one reason why this is even happening. Nigeria was better off during military era abeg. This is crap

Akinade said...

why dont we just merge states to create a balanced geo-zone to solve the problem created by our colonial masters. FOOD FOR THOT.. United States of America has 50 states (States United together to form a federation) Nigeria is just a state like Texas in the states. we should be forming a USA (united states of Africa) stead of breaking our small Nigeria into many fractions with the Noun tag 'STATES'(Etiti State, Ijebu State ko, na Surulere State ni.

The USA, which is North America has a total of 55 states. Now that's a continent! Naija is not a continent and we're about amassing 54 states? Here is the thing; with more creation of states, more minorities will arise which will in turn clamour for their own polity! It's a circle guys....a growing one....Useless one too! It's just as Achebe left it, "the problem with Nigeria is simply and squarely a failure of leadership". Gaskiya!

For once i see nigeria from all corners of the country agreevon one thing! Please , creation of more state is creation of more political offices through which our common wealth is siphonned. No more states please. What we need is creation of more accountabilty and probity in the system with stringent penalty for corruption. If possible death penalty!

United states is 10 times larger than in Nigeria in size, yet they have just 50 states.

This upside down thinking of our elders and leaders self is baffling, it is confirmed that as they grow old they become more stupid in thinking.

I think we should make a law to ban anyone older than 45 years from taking part in any form of political decision. Until they wise up. We will just hid behind them developing dementia.

I believe that this is a welcome development. People should be given the opportunity to govern themselves. Being from Delta state, I have noticed that only certain parts of the state are gaining from this "democracy". There have been very few if any developments in the proposed 'Anioma" area over the last 15 years. So it stands to reason that they would want a state of their own.

The James Ibori years were crap, and the Uduaghan years have not been much better. I think that the President should accept this proposal.

Akpan Itai said...

Why do they want to create more states when well meaning Nigerians are asking for the existing six geopolitical zones as federating units.Fifty-four weak states is the recpie for a strong centre, also known as unitary government, the type we currently have in place.If we cant go back to regions,then it should have been the six zones,or the one time 12 states structure if we are to consider viability. All said,let the present 36 states stay if we cant agree on a formula for merging them,provided we practise true federalism. No more new states please,unless ITAI State[remember?]is included.
