We seek a referendum – IPOB rejects the formation of Orlu state.

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has rejected the bill proposing the creation of additional states in the Southeast.

IPOB said the creation of additional states in Southeast will only bring about confusion in the region because the existing ones have not been properly managed.

Emma Powerful, the spokesman of IPOB, maintained that a referendum on exiting Nigeria is the only acceptable solution and not the creation of states.

On Thursday, the bill seeking to create Orlu State from Imo, Abia, and Anmabra passed its first reading in the House of Representatives.

Reacting, Powerful said the creation of additional states would lead to increased confusion, hatred, and mismanagement.

The statement reads, “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.
