Esimone, who was the resource person said it is no longer a lie that the current political arrangement in Nigeria does not favour the South East and that it is true to say that the South East is marginalized.

He said: “It does not make sense that South East that two states in other parts of the country can equal the entire representations of the entire South East in . It does not also make sense that the South East has only five states, while others have six.

“The question is who is marginalizing the South East? The first is the Nigerian constitution and the second is credible census. Without credible constitution there will never be equity.
