The People of Abia are mainly of the Igbo stock. English is widely spoken and serves as the official language in governance and business while the Igbo language serves as a native tongue.  Globally, the Igbos are well travelled.

They are known to be tolerant, ultra-democratic and reputed to be industrious, highly market oriented, very hospitable and accommodating, probably due to their migratory nature. About 2.4m Abia people are mainly Christians and entrepreneurial.
