Shocking Revelation: IBB Confessed Why He Created Anambra State (Must Read)

Former Military President, Gen Ibrahim Babangida
(rtd), has said the reason he carved out the current
Anambra state 25 years ago from the old Anambra
state which comprised of Enugu, Anambra, and
some parts of Ebonyi state, was to take
development to some forgotten communities.
He disclosed this at his Hilltop mansion in Minna,
Niger State, when he received a team of Anambra
State Government officials led by the deputy
governor, Dr. Nkem Okeke, who presented the
dummy of a book on Anambra to him.


Going down memory lane, Babangida said “the
state was created in 1991 to ensure that
development got to the rural areas, which hitherto
was neglected.”


While expressing his willingness to author the
forward for the Anambra State history photo book,
he said: “The decision to document the history of
the state is a laudable one, judging from the
dummy of the book, a great job has been done in
that respect.


“It will be my pleasure to be part of this historic
book. Anambra is a state dear to my heart. And I
am proud of the development strides so far
recorded in the state.”
