The clamour for creation of Adada State on Saturday topped demands of various federal constituencies in Enugu State.

During the session held at Obollo-Affor, headquarters of Udenu Local Government Area of the state, the people unanimously demanded the creation of Adada State.

According to them, they were ready to concede every other item as contained in the template document for the realisation of the proposed new state.

In his speech, the member representing Igbo-Eze North/Udenu federal constituencies, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, expressed hope that the exercise would yield fruitful results in the future.

At the Enugu East/Isiuzo Federal Constituency session held at Enugu East council headquarters, Nike, the people also threw their weight behind the creation of Adada state.

Meanwhile, former governor of old Anambra State, Senator Jim Nwobodo, has said peoples’ participation in the making of the constitution in a plural society is important for good governance.

Nwobodo stated this while delivering the keynote address at the Enugu North local government headquarters for the people of Enugu North/Enugu South Federal Constituency.

He said the review was a novel idea, and likened it to the sovereign national conference, which some Nigerians have called for.

He stated that, “I urge all of us to take this hearing very seriously. Everybody has now been given the opportunity to come and discuss the various issues of nation building through constitution reviews, amendment or alteration.

“We all have the opportunity to tell our own stories, to say our mind, to propose how our nation should be structured, how we should be governed, what should be the responsibilities of each level of government, the rights of the people and other things that will make for harmonious living and development.”

Earlier, the Chairman of the session and former Senate President, Ken Nnamani, called on the people to feel free to air their views as nothing they said would be held against them.
