Check Out The Two New States That Were Proposed For Creation in 2021

The creation of new states in Nigeria has been a contentious issue for many years, with various groups and regions advocating for the division of existing states or the formation of new ones. According to reports in the Punch Newspaper in 2021, two new states were proposed for creation: Tiga State and Katagum State.

Tiga State was reportedly proposed by the Kano State House of Assembly, with the aim of promoting economic development and improving governance in the area. The proposed state would be carved out of the present Kano State, with Tiga Local Government Area as its capital.

Similarly, the proposed Katagum State would be created out of Bauchi State, with the aim of addressing the socio-economic challenges faced by the people of the area. The proposal was reportedly made by the Katagum Emirate Council, and would have Azare as its capital.

It is worth noting that the creation of new states is a complex and politically sensitive issue in Nigeria, and any proposed changes would need to go through a rigorous process of legislative and constitutional review before they could be implemented. As such, it remains to be seen whether these proposed new states will come to fruition.
