Once Upon a Time in a City called “UMUAHIA”

Abia State is a province in Nigeria with a Capital called Umuahia, this dusty town is located at the Eastern region of Nigeria with a 100% Christians made up of Catholics,Methodist,Anglican,Pentecostal,Seven day Adventist,Cherubim and Seraphim, and the aka ” Abia God’s Own State” .
I happened to be on a visit to this city my second to be precise, i can say that the transformation has nothing but desolate , as i see the hardship the people face from decaying infrastructure , in all sector. The untold hardship the people of this state face is beyond imaginery, as the private sector business is been crippled by the Govt policy of Land crapping to demolition of the poor masses source of income, the Govt has only deepen the poverty of the people by making them to depend on Govt hand out , as i was taking my morning work to see how the city has changed , my eyes was amazed.
I managed to take some pictures to share with my fellow bloggers .

  1. The place looks pretty dry and unorganized… So what is the government’s near future plan for this place?
