Equal States Movement

Equal States Movement in Nigeria Petition

Petition Background (Preamble):

South East Geo-political zone in Nigeria is shortchanged in the creation of states and federal constituencies. This is creating political and economic marginalization of South East people. We are being unfairly forced to become minority in the polity.

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.
