This would foster industrial development and competition among regions instead of the current docile nature of a majority of states as presently constituted.

“Nigeria needs to implement the National confab report, which recommended equity in state creation within the geo-political zones,” the group said, noting that the quit notice declaration was made by a sponsored group with primary intent to steal and suppress the legitimate grievances of others and their inherent right to self-determination.

“The continued agitation of Igbo youths across the country, according to IWA is a by-product of persistent injustice and marginalization arising from bad leadership and unjust structure of the country’s polity.

IWA said a Nigeria of equal ownership is the only way forward to save the situation.
