The state has one of the highest population densities in Nigeria. Most of the population is urban (approx 65%) but over the last decade has witnessed increased rural urban migration.
This migration has posed serious challenges for the scarce resources, fragile infrastructure and scarcely available social amenities. It has posed also serious environmental problems such as sanitation, erosion that have had attendant health risks such as water borne diseases.
The pressure is evidently clear on the four major cities of Onitsha(spreading to Nkpor and spilling into Ogidi), Awka, Nnewi and Ekwulobia.
With the consistent piling of pressure on the urban cities and the increased housing needs which have led to private sector driven mass housing, the lack of government supervision and enforcement of housing policies have continued to create new virgin slums around these cities.
Crime is also a major challenge in the state as insecurity pervades the society. With Kidnapping for ransom on the increase, there is an increasingly downturn in business and many businessmen now reside outside the state despite government assurances and the proliferation of armed vigilantes.
There is the alarming low enrolment in school especially amongst the males, and the falling educational standard as seen from the low admission through JAMB and the poor WEAC results.
In the major cities such as Onitsha, Awka, and Nnewi, we are faced with the serious environmental challenge especially flooding primarily due to very poor storm water channelization and silted drains.
