State liaison Offices are just like embassies, they represent the interest of the state. They make it easy for citizens or indigenes of that state to process some documentation or resolve certain issues. Liaison Office means a place to act as a channel of communication between the principal place (State of Origin) and the citizen.– Definition
Anambra State is one of the five states that make up the South-East geopolitical zone of Nigeria. It has interstate boundaries with Delta State to the West, Imo and Rivers States to the South, Enugu State to the East, and Kogi State to the North. It derives its name from the Anambra River, a tributary of the River Niger. The state capital is Awka. Anambra state was first formed in 1976 from the northern half of East-Central state
The early settlers of Anambra State were the Igbo people. Archaeological discoveries of intricate works of art in bronze and other metals at Igbo-Ukwu point to the existence of a developed ancient civilisation. There are also a number of Igala people who live in the state’s Northwest.
Anambra State was originally part of the Eastern region in the three region structure of 1954. In 1967, with the creation of twelve federal states by General Yakubu Gowon’s military government, it became a part of the East-Central State. In 1976, the East Central State was divided into Anambra and Imo States by General Murtala Muhammed’s military government.
In 1991, General Ibrahim Babangida’s military government increased the number of states to twenty-seven; Enugu State, one of the new ones, was carved out of Anambra State.
Christianity is the dominant religion in Anambra State, although a number of its inhabitants practice traditional religion.
