Believe it or not Abia State is passing through its roughest periods since it was created. Never have the people had it so bad. Life is gradually grinding to a halt. Nothing seems to be working any longer. The government, as well as social infrastructure, seems to be in a comatose state. Hunger, poverty, infrastructural decay, insecurity and disorder are the prevalent features in the state. A once virile and robust state has been pulled to its knees by the greed and avarice of a few persons who parade themselves as leaders of the state. The governor, Chief Theodore Orji, whose primary responsibility is to superintend over the affairs of the state and its people, has abandoned the day-day governance in preference to politics.
