The President General of the Igbo apex socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, has threatened to sue the Federal Government for appointing just five ministers from the South-East.
The group said the Federal Government failed to be fair to the South-East by giving them fewer ministerial appointments than other zones of the country in the Federal Executive Council.
Speaking at a press conference in Owerri, the Imo capital, the Ohanaeze leader said the action is unfair and a contravention of the federal character principles.
He also appealed to the Federal Government to create additional states in the South-East to make it even with other geo-political zones in the country.
He added that the inability of the government to create an additional state is causing a lot of underdevelopment and suffering in the South-East.
