Abia State is a State in South-eastern Nigeria. The capital is Umuahia, although the major commercial city is Aba, formerly a British colonial government outpost. The State was created in 1991 from part of Imo State and its citizens are predominantly Igbo people (95% of population). It is one of the nine constituent States of the Niger Delta region. The People of Abia are mainly of the Igbo stock. They are known to be tolerant, ultra-democratic and reputed to be industrious, highly market oriented, very hospitable and accommodating, probably due to their migratory nature. About 2.4m Abia people are mainly Christians and entrepreneurial. A lot of rebranding is going on in the ancient city of Aba and we are excited to be visiting there at this time. We would be showcasing the entrepreneurial spirit and what makes age long trades transcend through generations. The entrepreneurial touching is blazing hot in Aba and we just be there to see why. We hope to learn alot from this people, showcasing matching innovations and native intelligence that can not be seen anywhere else but Aba.
