Welcome To Umuahia by FACE(m): 3:38pm On Nov 25, 2013
Ok, so I was in Umuahia for a few days. Usually, my trips to Umuahia would only cover a small area of interest to me, but my visit took me to some other areas that I had not been to in 6 years and I was surprised at the very rapid expansion of the city. People putting down solid money for solid buildings.

Umuahia is generally very clean and the roads are good. Some areas have covered drainage system while the people that stay in areas with open drains somehow refrain from throwing rubbish into the drain.

Some of the roads are narrow, especially in the Low cost and world bank estates which were originally planned as residential areas but have been overtaken by events. The city is now vastly commercial and people build small makeshift projections to expand the shops at ground floor level.

There are some top draw estates and a new area being developed as the New Umuahia where I saw a few cranes in action. Our main market is gone and I hope the area is put to good use. Most of our Amas have now been taken over by 2,3,4 storey buildings; Mbiara abia have now dug in for good and soon some areas will give way to new names and identities.

I also noticed a significant demographic change, with Igbo, Efic, Ibibio, Hausa, Yoruba etc doing their thing in Umuahia.

Ok, I didn't just drop down from the sky to Umuahia. I passed through some areas from Owerri to Mbaise to Obowo before getting to Umuahia. Owerri has actually burst at the seams and many suburbs are now firmly in Owerri and it is rapidly expanding. Whoever says that Rochas has done nothing in Owerri is full of BS.I can't hold brief for him in other areas but I had a glimpse of Okigwe (Owerri Road) on my way to Enugu from Umuahia. So my Umuahia pictures will start from Imo state.

Asha, I have been very busy and only remembered nairaland when I was looking through my pictures. I can see the ethnic battle is still on and has entered a nuclear level. I wanted to visit Aba but I was very busy.

Madam please carry your pessimism somewhere else, ppl like you dont see anything good in anything. If the OP had said 'Aba' i'd have been weary, but as per Umuahia, even orji's haters affirm that he did a great Job over there....

@FACE, na your face be this? Long time, how bodi. Welcome back sir.
Re: Welcome To Umuahia by Nobody: 5:42pm On Nov 25, 2013
@Face maybe u should reduce the resolution of the pictures using a Photo editor like Photoshop, Gimp or Corel Draw or even Windows Picture Manager
I am eager to see what Orji has done to Umuahia. Maybe then I will reduce my compulsion to compare him to a brainless minotaur

Hey, I have reduced the sizes from 1500KB to about 180 Kb still no show.

Ndu_Chucks, n na geshua. Wana brief appearance ne. Ka sani nairaland ne ungwan mahukaci da gidan dan iska yenzu. Ba na so uwan zei zage ni anan. ( It's been long, hope I made sense)

As for those that have lived one hundred years in Umuahia; you don't know Face, I don't engage in useless arguments. If I post any picture that isn't from Umuahia please say so.

I am not attributing anything to Orji, I just took pictures of areas I went to. I wonder why anyone would still need an overhead bridge to cross to a dangerous demolition site.

Re: Welcome To Umuahia by Nnewi1stSon: 7:45pm On Nov 25, 2013

Re: Welcome To Umuahia by FACE(m): 7:53pm On Nov 25, 2013
A shopping mall and office complex along the bypass. It's a twin structure and was at the ninth floor as at two weeks ago. Another by pass from opposite Alvan traversing behind Emmanuel college. Still got lots of Owerri pictures but lets leave town to Emekuku

Re: Welcome To Umuahia by FACE(m): 7:57pm On Nov 25, 2013

Sam Mbakwe is the 2nd bypass I think and it is yet to be completed.
