Hon. Princess Chinwe Nnabuife Clarifies Position on the Proposed Creation of Orlu State

Member representing Orumba North and South Federal constituency,Princess Chinwe Nnabuife has clarified her own position on the purported creation of the proposed Orlu State by the House of Representatives.

In a Statement released to the press on Monday ,the lawmaker said she was not privy to such move noting that though she had nothing against creation of additional state in the South-East , her constituents have rejected to be part of the proposed State.

The full statement reads:

In the light of recent developments regarding the proposed creation of Orlu State, I, Honourable Princess Chinwe Nnabuife, representing Orumba North and South Federal Constituency, wish to clarify my stance and correct any misconceptions surrounding this bill.

It has come to my attention that a bill for the creation of Orlu State, sponsored by Hon. Ugochinyere Michael Ikeagwuonu, has scaled its first reading in the House of Representatives. This bill, identified as HB1430, purportedly includes Umunze Community in the proposed new state. I must emphasize that I and the good people of Umunze whom I represent in the National Assembly is not privy to this bill as I was never consulted on this matter and therefore do not support this bill.

It is imperative to set the record straight: I have nothing against the creation of state but this said bill was neither discussed nor deliberated upon with me or my Constituents before being brought to the floor of the House of Representatives.The People of Orumba North and South have unequivocally rejected the idea of being included in the proposed Orlu State. Umunze, the heart and Capital of Orumba South has always been and will always remain an integral part of Anambra State.

As the duly elected representative of Orumba North and South Federal Constituency it is my duty to protect the interests and the wishes of my Constituents.Any attempt to alter the status of our constituency without proper consultation and agreement is unacceptable. The historical, cultural, and administrative ties of Umunze to Anambra State are deeply rooted and cannot be overlooked or undermined by this proposed bill.

I hope this statement clears the air and sets the record straight. Umunze in Orumba North/Orumba South Federal Constituency remains steadfastly a part of Anambra State, 

Thank you for your attention.

Honourable Princess Chinwe Nnabuife

Member Representing Orumba North and South

House of Representatives of Anambra State.
