Abuja, Nigeria 


In a groundbreaking development, the House of Representatives has embarked on a transformative journey towards establishing a new state in the vibrant southeastern region of Nigeria.

The momentous occasion, monitored by Truth Live News, marks a significant departure from convention as lawmakers in the lower chamber of the national assembly have ushered in a new era by passing a bill for the establishment of Orlu State through its inaugural reading.

The visionary legislation, spearheaded by the dynamic Hon. Ikeagwuonu Ugochinyere, esteemed representative of Ideato North South Federal Constituency of Imo State, and enthusiastically supported by a coalition of progressive lawmakers, represents a seismic shift in Nigeria’s political landscape. The bill, now poised for its next phase in the legislative process, promises to redefine the socio-political fabric of the nation.

Central to the proposed bill is the ambitious endeavor to amend the 1999 Constitution, transcending the existing framework by elevating the number of states in Nigeria from 36 to 37. This bold move not only symbolizes inclusivity but also paves the way for enhanced governance and representation for the diverse communities within the southeastern region.

The envisioned Orlu State, envisioned as a beacon of progress and prosperity, will be meticulously carved out from the territories of Imo, Abia, and Anambra states, with the historic city of Orlu poised to ascend as its bustling capital. This strategic realignment promises to unleash a wave of economic revitalization and infrastructural development, propelling the region towards unprecedented growth and prosperity.

Moreover, the bill advocates for a holistic restructuring of administrative boundaries, with a comprehensive list of 28 local government areas earmarked for inclusion within the fabric of Orlu State. From the bustling urban centers to the tranquil rural landscapes, each locality is poised to contribute its unique essence to the tapestry of the nascent state, fostering a sense of unity amidst diversity.

Hon. Ugochinyere, the visionary architect behind this transformative initiative, impassioned by the spirit of progress and unity, implores his esteemed colleagues at the hallowed halls of the National Assembly to rally behind the bill, ensuring its seamless passage through the crucible of the legislative process. His fervent appeal underscores the collective commitment to realizing the aspirations of the people and ushering in an era of unprecedented prosperity.

Furthermore, the creation of Orlu State heralds a momentous milestone in the annals of Nigeria’s political evolution, marking a decisive step towards rectifying historical imbalances. With the emergence of Ideato as a senatorial district, the southeastern region stands poised to reclaim its rightful place on the national stage, fostering a climate of equitable representation and empowerment.

As the nation embarks on this exhilarating journey towards progress and prosperity, it is imperative to acknowledge the profound significance of this paradigm shift. In a country characterized by diversity and dynamism, the creation of Orlu State serves as a testament to the enduring spirit of resilience and innovation that defines the Nigerian identity.
