Ikwuano Transit Terminal

Ahamefula Development Initiative Ikwuano is a non governmental community based organization, registered with the corporate affairs commission and all other relevant authorities in Nigeria. Our core objective is to prioritize the interests of Ikwuano in the pursuit of a developed, peaceful and just Local Government Area by entrenching the principles of justice, equity, leadership accountability, selflessness, and inclusivity.

Ikwuano is a Local Government Area of Abia State, Nigeria. Its headquarters is in Isiala Oboro. It has an area of 281km and a population of about 437,893. It is made up of about 57 villages and communities and is bounded by Ini LGA, Obot Akara LG both of Akwa Ibom State, Isialangwa South, Bende, Umuahia South and Umuahia North. Ikwuano Local Government Area can be referred to as the food basket of Abia State basically because of its rich agricultural produce it is endowed with. Ikwuano as the name implies is derived from the coming together of four (4) related brothers namely Oboro, Ibere, Ariam-Usaka and Oloko. Ikwu (Relations/Relatives) and Ano (Four 4) meaning four relations. Ikwuano LGA was among the local government areas that were created on the 27th of August 1991 when the General Ibrahim Babangida’s Administration created Abia State from the old Imo State, it was carved out of the Ikwuano-Umuahia Local Government Area. It’s one of the six LGAs that make up Abia Central Senatorial District. lkwuano houses the famous Michael Okpara University of Agriculture Umudike, The National Crop Research Institute as well as the prestigious Government Collage Umuahia. It is known for her agricultural activities.

Besides being an agricultural food basket and the connecting hub between two oil producing state capitals, Umuahia (Abia State) and Uyo (Akwa Ibom State)

From Nkalunta through Elemaga to Azunchia the fertility of our soil has enhanced the farming and production of Cocoa, making us produce over 150 tons of cocoa annually. Our Palm fruits production is estimated to be over 200 tons each harvest season, production of other agricultural products like vegetables and cassava also run into tens of tons each harvest season. Yet we do not have any food storage facility either privately owned nor through government.
We are blessed with Kaolin clay in Obunta. (Kaolin the most important ingredient in the production of porcelain ceramics) with streams crisscrossing the entire landscape and its attendant vegetation, crude oil may indeed be discovered in lkwuano if explored. Nature in Ikwuano is really at its best and there are huge prospects of tourism if developed. Known for our production of palm wine, we had one of the first palm wine bottling factories in the south east.
Despite all these seeming economic advantages, Ikwuano Local government council area has no local economy. To travel out of ikwuano, you first have to get to either Umuahia or Uyo to board transportation to your destination despite our enermous economic potential as a people. It is in response to this that Ahamefula development Initiative Ikwuano, a non governmental community based organization set out to embark on the construction of A Bus transit terminal to both create employment for our teeming youths and to also cash in on the commuter traffic criss crossing Ikwuano as a transit hob between two oil producing state capitals.
This modern terminal will house a Ten room cottage hotel at very moderate room rates for commuters on transit, a shopping mall, lock up boutique shops, an e library, four office rental spaces. a mini medical clinic and laboratory, a car repair and diagnostic center, car spare part shops, a gas station, three bus loading Bays and three cafeteria’s to be rented out to fast food vendors. (Please find design layout attached)
Proceeds from the rents within this Terminal shall be used to give out Scholarships to Indigent Ikwuano indigenes who desire to attend school but cannot afford the fees. This Terminal will be located between Ariam and Awomukwu in Ikwuano Local council area along the Major transit road.
As a non governmental ,non profit oriented organization, we depend on donations from people such as you to enable us carry out our humanitarian activities particularly within Ikwuano Local government area council.
It is therefore for this reason that we write to solicit your support in donating towards this project. the first of its kind in Nigeria. The completion of this project will go a long way in ameliorating the hardship and poverty being experienced by over 400,000 indigenes located within this geographical enclave. This transit Terminal will create an additional two hundred jobs within the Local government council and ease transportation difficulties currently being experienced within the Local council area.
