ONUMBA.COM, USA – Created along with five others in 1996 by the late Nigerian Head of State Sani Abacha, Ebonyi State is one of the smallest states in Nigeria. Right of the bat, it was a struggle for the new state as it joined a cabal of other feckless governments ravaging in teeth-gnashing poverty. The brand new state —– which is also known by its popular moniker ‘The Salt of the Nation, and its capital city of Abakaliki —- had to take off lacking the badly needed advantage of building upon existing governmental structures, and because of that, struggled to get going from having to install institutions of government from the scratch. Comparatively, from all measures, and perhaps largely because of that embryonic setback, Ebonyi is limping painfully behind its neighbors as far as infrastructural and economic development are concerned. In short, when it comes to size as far as “small,” goes, Ebonyi features quite prominently in just about everything: The state is small in land, tiny in population, little in the growth of its economy and picayune in the size of its budget.
