    This is pure none sense, out of the 19 states , only just 2 to be created from south west. What our delegate are doing? When we have 31 local government in osun, can't they cast 1 state out of it? When we're having 7 local government that made up most of the new proposed state. It's better we leave everything this way otherwise there will be public uproar. NONE SENSE.

    i dont see the sense in leaving the present Kogi state the way it is. now that opportunity has come to right the wrong, it is only normal to do the right thing by creating a state out of the present structure. Okun people want to go back to Kwara state, the same with Ibira people. Therefore, it is only expected to see Okura state created for d sake of equity and justice.
