THE Asagba of Asaba, Obi (Prof.) Joseph Chike Edozien, CFR, JP, has assured that Anioma State would be created, saying that the long awaited state creation from the present Delta State will wipe out the word, “marginalisation” from the area.

According to him, “it was gladdening that the people of Ndokwa are positively involved in the struggle for the creation of Anioma State.”
While assuring that the creation of Anioma State is achievable, the Asagba stated that the support for its creation “has been total”, emphasising that the Anioma State, when created, would bring about equal development of the area and in all aspects of life.
The Asagba thanked the Ndokwa National Union for the solidarity visit.
Speaking on behalf of the delegation which was led by HRH Emmanuel Chukwudebe II, the Akor of Aika Kingdom, Abala clan, Chief Godwin Iwegbue said the Ndokwa people were happy that the Asagba was celebrating his 88th birthday.
Chief Iwegbue stated that the National President of the Ndokwa National Union, Pharm. Paul Enebeli was happy with the commitment of the Asagba for the creation of Anioma State.
“We are wishing you the best of all times,” Chief Iwegbue urged the Asagba not to waver in his struggle for the good of the Anioma people.
