The house of representatives has approved the creation of two new state constituencies for Benue state.

The approval followed a proposal to the House of Representatives by independent national electoral commission (INEC) that the boundaries of Guma state constituency be altered by creating two state constituencies.

The new state constituencies created from Guma are Guma state constituency and Agasha state constituency.

Attempts by other lawmakers to compel INEC to include their states in the alterations of constituencies considered failed to sail through.

Speaker Yakubu Dogara, while ruling on the motion said the approval of Guma and Agasha constituencies was strictly based on supreme court judgment and cannot be altered.
