How the term ‘Anioma’ was derived


The term ‘Anioma’ is an acronym derived from the four original local government areas that make up Anioma: (A) for Aniocha, (N) for Ndokwa, (I) for Ika and (O) for Oshimili.

                                                   

The term was coined in 1951 by Chief Dennis Osadebay, one of the founding fathers of Delta State and has remained the preferred indigenous name by which the people collectively refer to themselves

 

Anioma is located in the West Basin of River Niger, Delta State of Nigeria, and occupies a landmass of about 6,300km².

 

It is a region that is also largely blessed with oil deposits particularly Ndokwa land, Akumazi, Umunede, Ute-Okpu, Ute-Erume, Ute-Ogbeje.
