*I dont think creating new states is a good idea at all.


  1. When unintelligence , selfishness meets power

    1. They just want governorship post to sha reach their household. Very backward thinking greedy lots

  2. Replies
    1. Very very misplaced priorities, who swear for our leaders self

  3. The Delta state split is the only one I'm in support of. They're too different to be in one state

  4. At this point, a new state will change nothing. What we need first and foremost is good governance. Nigeria is too unstable at the moment for state creation

  5. I don't think it's a good idea

  6. On top the 32 that's not functioning

    1. @Miss Ess, it is 36 states right now. I'm sure you meant "On top of the 36 that's not functioning."

  7. Pleas this a lie . The senate spokesperson was interviewed by the Cable newspaper. People suɓmitted their requests for the creation of states, but the senate hasn't discussed the requests. The process of creating new states is very cumbersome.

  8. The ones una 'create' before, how far?


  9. Is this the solution to the problems in this country 🙄🙄🙄selfish leaders.

  10. Stella dear it is not at all...To think of it is not even productive...My problem with Nigeria is that we don't evaluate or give account of what is being done...Most of the present states have no business being states, some of their IGR reads ''ENUGBE'' some cannot even pay salaries..If FG does not give them allocation, they will just collapse.

    SOLUTION: Let the 36 states merge and formed to 6 federating Units or Zones for effective and efficient governance...These senators are just dense people..

  11. More governors, more revenue allocation, more borrowing....with a bad economy. We governed by stark illiterates.

  12. Creation of their new looting points.
    Why not hold a referendum on whether the federating units
    wants to go their separate ways or not; yes on de-amalgamation.

  13. See the names sef! Etiti state ,kunda state. What the fuck is wrong with our leaders!

  14. Is this a formula for development or what?

  15. Bayelsa that the landmass isn't up to 3 plots of land na em they wan divide

  16. the proposed names of the states are epic!....pls,let no one create those fact,Nigeria is better already.😀

  17. OLD OlodoS, all they are after is their selfish benefit.

  18. Fer no let them cut Niger state, despite the fact that it is about the largest state in the country.

  19. I'm in total support for Kaduna south. Those people have really suffered.
