The bill was presented on the floor of the Senate on Wednesday.

Titled “Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (Alteration) Creation of Tiga State Bill, 2024 (SB.523)”.
The bill underwent its First Reading on 10;July, 2024.

Recall that the upper legislative chamber was recently presented with a bill, sponsored by Delta North Senator, Ned Nwoko, for the creation of Anioma State in the South-East, to bring the zone at par with other geo-political zones, which have six states.

There are also bills for the creation of Orlu State, sponsored by Senator Osita Izunaso and a member of the House of Representatives, Ikenga Ugochineyere, and Etiti State, sponsored by Amobi Godwin Ogah, representing Isikwuato/ Umunneochi Federal Constituency of Abia State, and four others representing the affected communities.

Some lawmakers are also seeking the creation of additional states from Lagos and other states across the country.

However, since Nigeria’s independence in 1960, civilian administrations have not been able to create states.
