As the Federal Government plans to establish RUGA settlements in various states of the country for herders, the youth wing of Ohanaeze Ndigbo has submitted a proposal for a draft bill for the federation of South East states of Abia, Anambra , Ebonyi, Imo and Enugu.
The National President of the Youth wing, Mr. Arthur Obiora in a statement made available to infocraftdiary, said the draft bill has been sent to all state Houses of Assembly in the South East, for deliberation and passage.
Also, the group urged Igbos in Delta and Rivers who wish to join the federation, to do so.
Obiora noted that it has become necessary for Nigeria to go back to regional system of government, with a level of autonomy for the federating regions, in view of the socio-political and structural conflicts in Nigeria.
According to him, this will ensure faster development of the country and equally reduce rat race to control the centre less.
He said it is hoped that the bill would be passed just as he urged other parts of Nigeria do the same.
The deputy spokesman of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Chuks Ibegbu noted that there was nothing wrong with the draft and that it is better the issue is addressed for the future of Nigeria.
