The time has come to declare Aba and indeed, the whole of Abia State a Disaster Area.  Since the last 12 years, no single development has taken in Aba, a more than 2 million people population city.  Crime and the worst criminality of our time, KIDNAPPING has overtaken the city.  Investors and investment has since dried up.  There is no motorable road anywhere in Aba at this time.  Roads are not just bad, they are broken into two or three impassable locations.  Some of the roads are almost impossible for pedestrians to use.

Dirt and filth  has overtaken the whole city.  Touts are everywhere ravaging what remains of the people's sanity.

I fear a breakdown of law and order here.  The people are being pushed through a concrete wall. 

Government irresponsibility and insensitivity is what fills the air here.  Will Nigerians and the Nigerian government wait until there is uprising before stepping in to save Abia State.

As the KIDNAPPING incidents rage daily, arms and ammunition FLOW  into the city of Aba and its environ is reported to be enough to run down five states in Nigeria.  Kidnap victims report seeing helicopters ferry automatic weapons into camps in the bushes of Ukwa Area of Abia State.

Criminal gangs are reportedly recruiting unemployed youths who pay fees ranging from N40,000 to get guns to start their criminal activities.

Aba has been ABAndoned for years, now the result is with us.

SAVE OUR SOULS

Am shocked that somebody is talking of declaring Aba or Abia a disaster area abandoned for years without asking pertinent questions and directing his blames to the same people of the state who over these years allowed a cabal to be their leader. Learders without vision and purpose have nothing to offer in terms of progress. All you can get are things we are witnessing in and around the state called Abia.

What do you expect in slum areas but the urly excesses of hoodlums as kidnapping, rape, holiganisim and all sorts of criminal activities. Aba is now a no-go zone and those who have been following events around the state will testify that it has gone beyond the security apparatus in that state and must be jointly handled by the Federal authorities.

Nigeria belongs to all of us and we cannot fold our arms and watch few individuals ruin the efforts of our past leaders, we won't allow few men who through illegal fortunes made themselves leaders riun the future of our great nation. These people are still in power, turning deaf ears and blind eyes to the results of their wrong doings which is affecting all. Let us wake up to the challenges of the moment, what you plant is what you harvest. Abia people planted wrongly and are harvesting now. God will help them and the country but foremost the people must open their eyes and elect credible men and women to lead them. Now is the time.
Aba is a sad story. I wonder what the governor of Abia state thinks about all this! When we have this level of insecurity, so much so that the world (CNN) has commented on it, then the political parties fighting over his candidature are not being true to the electorate. Both the state commissioner of police and the governor should now consider their suitability for the offices they occupy.
@poster....wot do u mean, No new development?
there is o.....wot kidnappings including children?
wot of the useless Governors we hv had and current political harlot who is jumping 4rrm one party to anoda?

to start wit, that Governor should b arrested.
check out the capital town, Umuahia.
Umuahia was much better b4 becoming the state capital, jst look at Umuahia 2day, a glorified village.

Aba is now a DEN for criminals and nobody doesn anything abt it.
All the politicians in dat state should be held accountable.

God's ABANDONED state....No more God's own state!
It is surprising that after all the confessions made by theodore orji himself and the counter accusation made by orji uzor kalu, the EFCC is not prosecuting these men. Instead, the PDP is hobnobbing with theodore orji and have given him flag to run for the next election. I get a feeling that Abia State is either filled by criminals from their Ezes, their lecturers, doctors, traders, rich men and poor men alike are likely all criminals, all waiting for their turn to steal, hence nobody is talking about the state of Abia State. It is a shame to be part of this state, dear brother.

I completely agree with you. Criminality in all its ramifications must be condemned by all well-meaning Nigerians. The peak of this criminality is the reported kidnapped of 15 nursary school kids. These kids are three to ten years old. Kidnapping started from the South - South, but in the history of the crime, never has it been reported that a children school bus was waylaid and children kidnapped. Crime against innocent children is crime against God. I am convinced that God himself will come down to free these children and the perpetuators of this heinous crime will never go unpunished.

it is a Big shame to the Govt and elected/appointed officers of the state what we have are bunch of visionsless people as elected and appointed officers they are part of this crime if not how come poor perpetual puppers who their families does not have name hold the state to ransom and give orders to police to flew from checking points and banks keep closing everyday and kids,adults are been kidnapped day in day out without the GOVT and all elected people of Abia state both in federal and state arrest this situation once and for all,this boys act as authority themselves which means they have a backup and the well meaning citizens of the state has no option than to believe that both the past and present Govt have hands in this if not Abia state is very little to chase away this criminal elements and the Govt and elected officers of the State act as if the end has come and there is no remedy to this criminal act,all of them have ran away from the state allowing the poor citizens to suffer,we then ask where are the resources of the state over the years and why is orji uzo kalu and his group not been arrested and prosecuted by EFCC
what they have in Abia are bunch of selfish elected and appointed elements who have brought shame to God's own State and allow this criminals to hold the State to ransom,we will see how they will convince the citizens of Abia that they want to go back to office.declaring Abia a disaster area cannot solve the problem rather Abians should attack the govt and all the elected officers because they have failed to do their duty,Abia people should make sure new people with vision emerge as the rulers and leaders of the State come 2011
The question is: Is Abia state ungovernable? If not, what is government doing about it? If we keep quiet, no matter what part of Nigeria we are in, the country will go down with Aba.
I don't know if these EFCC people are sleeping to investigate all the elected politicians in Abia state, especially the two ORJIS. present and past, add Orji Uzo' s mother too.
There is no sign of all the State allocation 4rm the federal Govt.
Can anyone plz come forward and point out any tangible project still standing in Abia state since it's creation?
Umuahia the state capital lack every amenities worthy of a state capital, yet everyday we hear there's no money.
SO WOT ARE THEY DOING WIT STATE FEDERAL ALLOCATIONS?
If EFCC is looking for evidence to prosecute all those who have robbed Abia State from 1999 to date, they should just come and get a video recording of the capital city of Umuahia and Aba, the commercial capital. The criminality in Abia State has its roots with the government 1999 to date. Those who have ruined Abia State all these years are not just patent criminals themselves, they created all the kidnappers and provided all the arms used to traumatize the people of Abia State and Nigeria all this while. The worse judge would only take one look at the video clip of Abia State and he would sentence everybody who have been a governor, commissioner, government appointees, village heads and ezes of Abia State to the gallows. People of Abia State should rise up and the Federal Government should take up its responsibility and erase these leeches out of the way in Abia State.
My prediction eventually came true on Friday as the innocent children will released, by the grace of God and the intervention of President Goodluck Jonathan. May those who subjected these innocent kids never have children of their own. Obviosly, the truama these kids must have experienced must have been very devastating. May God wipe it off their memories and heal them completely. Amen
