Brief History of Delta State in Nigeria

Delta State was defined out of the former Bendel State on 27 August 1991. The state was actualized following agitations for the realization of a separate distinct state by the peoples of the old Delta Province. There was yet another state request proposed as "Anioma State" comprising the Asaba and Agbor divisions of the old Midwest region. The then Military President, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida, recognized Delta state but chose "Asaba" a prominent town within the "Northwestern Lower Niger" as capital city. The proposed capital was a virgin land in the heart of the two constituent divisions that constitutes the Northwestern Lower Niger. Delta state was once integrated in the Mid Western state from 1963 to 1976 and later Bendel state, from 1976 to 1991. The name "Bendel" (Ben-Del) coined from the old Benin and Delta Provinces of Western Region-Delta to reflect the integration of Benin and Delta provinces.

Culture and Belief of the People of Delta State in Nigeria

Delta State is predominantly inhabited by the Urhobo, Ukwani, Isoko, Ijaw, Ika, Aniocha-Oshimili, Itsekiri and the Olukumi people. The majority of inhabitants are Christian, with very few practicing traditional religions. Delta State is an oil and agricultural producing state in Nigeria and so the main occupation of the people is farming, trading, civil servants as well as owners of private and public firms and industries across the state.
