Abia State

ABIA STATE

 

Niger Delta States

Abia State was carved out of the former Imo State in 1991. The name "Abia" is an abbreviation of four of the state's densely populated regions Aba, Bende, Isuikwuato, and Afikpo. It is one of the thirty-six (36) States that constitute the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

 

 

Abia people are of the Igbo ethnic group who predominate much of the Southeastern part of Nigeria. Their traditional language is Igbo. English is widely spoken and serves as the official language in governance and business.

 

 

Globally, Igbos are well travelled. Abia's 2.4mm people are mainly Christians and entrepreneurs. They are known and reputed to be industrious, highly market-oriented, very hospitable and accommodating, probably due to their migratory nature.

 

There are two universities in the state: the federally-owned Michael Okpara University of Agriculture at Umudike and the state-owned Abia State University in Uturu. There are two tertiary hospitals, the Federal Medical Center in Umuahia and the Abia State University Teaching Hospital in Aba, which serve as referral hospitals in the state.

 

The Abia State Polytechnic is also in the city of Aba. Abia is one of the more peaceful states of Nigeria and has been a "haven" for foreign investors.
