The ongoing National Conference has received memoranda from members of the public for the creation of Ogoja state from the present Cross River state.

Delegates from Cross River State had on Friday submitted a memorandum to the Committee on Political Restructuring and Forms of Government for the creation of Ogoja State from the present Cross River.

According to them, apart from Ogoja and Ijebu, all the other 22 provinces and their headquarters have since become states and capitals respectively.

They pointed out that a memorandum for the creation of Ogoja State was first submitted to the National Assembly in February 2009.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that that the 2009 memorandum was also submitted to the Committee.

In a statement signed by eight of the 10 delegates from Cross River and addressed to the Chairman, Committee on Political Restructuring, they said the creation of Ogoja State was long-overdue.

According to them, the conference is an opportunity for all sections of Nigeria to get justice.

The delegates appealed for support from all sections of the country for their demand so as to ensure the creation of the state.

    Old Ogoja province deserves the status of a state. It has all it takes to be accorded such a status. I pray that justice would not be denied.
