“We want to urge the federal lawmaker to widen the scope of interaction and consultation, particularly with critical stakeholders, to accommodate all shades of opinion in the pursuit of set goals,” they stated.

Senator Nwoko had briefed the monarchs on his activities in the Senate in the last year and that he had already engaged with relevant stakeholders, including federal authorities and fellow lawmakers, to advance the state-creation process.

He informed the royal fathers about the potential and prospects of an Anioma State as a catalyst for economic growth, more political representation and all-inclusive socio-economic transformation of the Anioma area, in its entirety.

In his opening remarks, the chairman of the forum and Obi of Abavo Kingdom, Uche Irenuma II, represented by the Obi of Obior, Ofuokwu III, said the platform was to enable Senator Nwoko to brief the royal fathers about his activities in the Senate.
