ABOUT ASABA

The City of Asaba, the capital of oil-rich Delta State of Nigeria is located on a hill at the Western edge of the River Niger. Asaba forms a connector between Western, Eastern and Northern Nigeria. Asaba lies approximately 6 degrees north of the equator and about the same distance east of the meridian; about 100 miles north of where the River Niger flows into the Atlantic Ocean. The greater Asaba occupies an area of about 300 sq km. It maintains an average tropical temperature of 90 degrees during the dry season and an average fertile rainfall of 6 inches during the rainy season. Ibo is the native language of Asaba and neighbouring towns. Neighbouring communities to Asaba include Ibusa, Okpanam, Oko, Okwe and Ugbolu.

The history of Asaba is always traced back to its most famous citizen, Nnebisi which means mother is supreme. Since becoming the capital of Delta State, Asaba has grown in population to now maintain a cosmopolitan population of predominantly non-indigenous people. Asaba is well known for social activities and amenities such as hotels, clubs, cinemas, malls, event centres, etc.

The Asagba of Asaba, Obi Prof. Chike Edozien is the traditional ruler of Asaba to whom the leaders of each of the five settlement quarters report directly on matters affecting the community. The Asagba is assisted by the Iyase who is the customary Prime Minister as well as a Council of Chiefs and Elders.

The city of Asaba is accessible by air through the Asaba International Airport. The Onitsha-Asaba-Benin Express road is an important road which connects parts of Eastern Nigeria with Western Nigeria, while the Asaba-Ebu road connects the city with Northern Nigeria. Asaba is served by water transportation available through the River Niger, which surrounds most parts of the city.
