Abia Govt Sets Up Committee For Diaspora Land Development

The Abia State government has set up a commuter for the actualisation of Abia State Diaspora Land Development.

This followed the State government’s approval of a parcel of land to be set aside for investment and development by Diasporans of Abia origin.

The Diasporan community will also have the responsibility to find the resources, design and develop the infrastructure which will include residential areas, social, health, educational and commercial facilities such as hospital/clinics, schools, departmental stores, and recreational centres.
