Petition Background (Preamble):
North West has 7 States with 21 senate seats and 92 federal constituencies.
North East has 6 States with 18 senate seats and 48 federal constituencies.
North Central has 6 States plus Federal Capital with 19 senate seats and 51 federal constituencies.
South West has 6 states with 18 senate seats and 71 federal constituencies.
South South has 6 states with 18 senate seats and 55 federal constituencies.
South East has only 5 states with 15 senate seats and 43 federal constituencies.
By this arrangement, we are short of at least a State, 3 senate seats and at least 6 federal constituencies; we are also short of federal allocations of billions of naira per month; we are also short of state institutions and local governments. This inequality must stop.
