Do you Know the History of how Delta State was created

Delta State was created in 1991 by the military regime of IBB (Ibrahim Babangida) due to the clamour by the people of the then Delta Province and the Anioma people. However, the Anioma people didn’t envisage being included in Delta State because they initially wanted a Niger State before Niger State was created in the North and then they settled for Anioma State with capital at Asaba or a virgin city which would be dubbed Anioma City. The people of the old Delta province wanted Warri as the capital. When IBB created the state, he named it after the Delta Province and made Asaba the capital as the Anioma people wanted. By so doing, he attempted at fulfilling two goals in one.

    Facts about Asaba & Warri

    Delta State has its capital at Asaba while Warri is the commercial and oil base of the State. Asaba is predominantly an administrative city. However, it has started to become a commercial city of late. Warri houses an annex of the State Government House and so by implication, Warri is like an ``assistant capital`` of Delta State. This was caused due to the complaints by the riverine based Deltans that Asaba was too far for them and so the government decided to open a government house at Warri to bring the government closer to the people.
