Amachi Nsulu is a community in Nsulu Isiala Ngwa North LGA. Nsulu was previously one of the fastest growing areas in the 1980s in Abia State, Nigeria. Due to rural urban migration caused by poor state of existing infrastructure and lack of new social amenities the community suffered a setback in development.
When the Amachi Nsulu community heard about the funding assistance rendered by the Abia State Government through the Abia State Agency for Community and Social Development Project they quickly keyed into the project.
The community Development Association Chairman (CDA Chairman) said many women had died in their community during child birth due to lack of necessary equipment, lack of drugs and poor state of their old health center as the women could not be admitted and monitored in the Centre. With the completion of the Health center an end has come to the untimely death of their people especially women and little children.
A new market stall has also been constructed to replace their old market stalls which was dilapidated to the point that during rains no activity will go on. In the words of the Treasurer of the CPMC (Community Project Management Committee), the market project is empowerment to women and youths and will go a long way to reduce rural urban migration. She said it has also taught them that they can come together to solve their problems as they did in the olden days and this will bring back their former glory as one of the most developed communities in the state. She appreciated the ABIA CSDP and praised the Governor of Abia State Okezie Victor Ikpeazu PhD. for bringing an Agency like ABIA CSDP to the state.
