History had it that Abia State was carved out of Imo State in the year 1991. Currently Abia is ranking among the richest states in southeast. Abia is a God's own state with the fact that they have a lot of crude oil and other natural mineral resources.
Abia is an acronym representing the four major cities in Abia State namely; Aba, Bende, Isiukwuato, and Arochukwu. Its slogan is "God's Own State" and indeed it is.
The meaning of ABIA in Hebrew is "my father is Lord" which is also similar to the state's slogan.
The meaning of ABIA in Arabic is "Great" this sounds so nice and splendid.
Indeed the meaning of Abia in these two ancient languages is really what the state is.
Thanks to our current governor His Excellency Okezie Ikpeazu, he is really putting his best in service. Abians are proud of him.
