INSIDE ABIA: A Comprehensive View Of Nigeria’s SME Capital

This documentary series, produced by TOS TV NETWORK, is crafted to provide viewers with a glimpse of potential business opportunities available in Abia State. "Inside Abia" reveals the pillars of development set by the State Governor, Okezie Victor Ikpeazu.




Abia State which is located in the South Eastern part of Nigeria occupies over 6,320 square kilometres. The southern part of the State lies within the riverine part of Nigeria resulting to its viability in Agriculture, Oil and Gas, Education, Industry and Commerce.


Oil and gas production contributes over 39% of Abia State's GDP while Agriculture contributes 27% and employs 70% of its workforce. With its adequate seasonal heavy rainfall, precisely about 2,400 millimetres (94 in) per year, especially between the months of April and October, Abia has much arable land that produces yams, maize, potatoes, rice, cashews, plantains, taro, and cassava. 


Oil palm, however, remains the most important cash crop produced in Abia State.


Albeit the viability of these sectors, Abia state remains known for its skills in trade and commerce. One million pairs of shoes leave Aba, the SME hub of Abia State, to neighbouring African countries every single day.

Abia can do more in terms of IGR, if only the gov can stop these third party revenue collections. They make millions daily on revenue collection which goes into their private pockets after after giving the govt a small percentage of what they collect. imagine if the govt collects and manages its own IGR, Aba go be small London.
Okezue do something about these areas the State is losing public fund

It's funny nobody knows the level of insecurity (kidnappings especially) in Aba. When you are all coming better come with security.

Just as there are security issues in every single town in Nigeria.

Aba's case is serious, I have lived in Imo and it's way safer, not the way they kidnap in Aba, the police are helpless. The kidnappers killed yesterday were by the military.
