Brief history of Aguata



Aguata is a Local Government Area in Anambra state in Nigeria with its headquarters in Aguata (location of the headquarters office buildings) major part of which falls into the city of Ekwulobia while the other part falls within Aguluezechukwu.


There has been an age-long contention on this issue between the indigenes of Aguluezechukwu and Ekwulobia with both towns claiming the status of the headquarters on account of ownership claim to the 'Aguata land'.


 This state of affairs made the Government of Anambra State to officially declare that the headquarters of Aguata Local Government Area should be Aguata (the neuter name of the location in which the headquarters of Aguata Local Government Area Offices are sited) in a bid to settle the conflict. Slogan: The Orient Colossus.

Ekwulobia is the largest city in Aguata and is expanding rapidly to a population of about five-hundred thousand people. It is the major commercial town in the area. Most Nigerian Commercial banks maintain their branches there.

 It also boasts of a stadium, a Federal Prison( part of which falls into Ezinifite) and a major market, Eke Market. Several new agro- based factories established around Ekwulobia city have also attracted workers into the city. Ekwulobia is also a major transit hub from where travellers can connect to other far flung cities in Nigeria. There are public transport vehicles that go from Ekwulobia, on daily basis, to Onitsha, Awka, Port Harcourt, Lagos, Abuja, Enugu, Abakaliki etc.
Ekwulobia is indeed a Beehive of activities especially during the festive period, it always attracts thousands of visitors from all walks of live during this periods. The famous and legendly 'Achukwu' masquerade which the entire nine villages that made up Ekwulobia has, is a beauty to behold.

In the area of hospitality business, a good number of Ekwulobia Indigenes have invested heavily in that aspect thereby setting up between one to three star hotels in the town like Orton Palace Hotel and others. And these and many other features have made Ekwulobia a must visit for many visitors as well as other neighbouring towns in the area.

Ekwulobia Development Union is the mother union of all branches of Ekwulobia People's meetings both home and abroad even in the diaspora, with Lagos branch which is headed by Nze Lawrence Ezenwa(Ogbuehi Chinaza Oku) being the strongest of all the unions.

The famous 'Awuka' masquerade of Aguluezechukwu and 'Nkpokiti Ije Enu Dance' were noted for their unique dancing steps and won accolades in the then Anambra State.
