* Sends draft bill for S’East federation
By Steve Oko

As the controversy over the proposed establishment of  Ruga settlements in various states of the country for herders keeps raging, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youths Council, is perfecting plans for Igbo secession.

The youth body which has vowed to resist the evil proposal has  submitted a proposal for a draft bill for the Federation of South East region.

According to the draft bill, the new federation comprises   Abia, Anambra , Ebonyi, Imo and Enugu States.

Confirming this to newsmen, National President of the group, Mr Arthur Obiora said the draft bill had been sent to all state Houses of Assembly in South East for deliberation and passage.

The group urged Igbos in Delta and Rivers who wished to join the federation, to join.

Obiora noted that in view of the socio-political and structural conflicts in Nigeria, it has become necessary for Nigeria to go back to regional system with a level of autonomy for the federating regions .

“This will ensure faster development of the country and make rat race to control the centre less.”

He hoped the bill would be passed and other parts of Nigeria do the same.

Commenting on the development the parent body of Ohanaeze Ndigbo said it was a step in the right direction.

The Deputy Spokesman of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide Chuks Ibegbu, said   there was nothing wrong with the draft bill, adding that  it is better the issue is addressed for the future of Nigeria.

This is coming days after a pan Yoruba group also reportedly sponsored a similar bill in all the South West states seeking a semi-autonomous South Western region within the Nigeria  federation

Investigations by Wawa News Global indicate that the latest agitation for self rule is being fueled by the rumoured secret agenda to ‘Fulanise ‘ Nigeria and the apparent tacit support by the Federal Government to the agenda.
