THE youth wing of Ohanaeze Ndigbo has submitted a proposal for a draft bill for the federation of South East states of Abia, Anambra , Ebonyi, Imo and Enugu.

Igbos in Delta and Rivers could opt  to join the federation, the group said.

The National President of the group, Arthur Obiora said the draft bill has been sent to all state Houses of Assembly in the East for deliberation and passage.

He noted that in view of the socio-political and structural conflicts in Nigeria, it has become necessary for Nigeria to go back to regional system with a level of autonomy for the federating regions .
