Agbor is located in Delta State within two local government areas demarcated by the Old Lagos/ Asaba Road. Ika North East on one side and Ika South on the other. . The common language is Ika, It is a blessed land, a city that is surrounded by villages that look up to her for survival in Culture, Tourism, Agriculture and the market for the sales of her products.

It has secondary schools which have produced big dignitaries both in the country and in the diaspora. Some of the prestigious schools include the all time Ika grammar school, Ogbemudien Secondary School, Mary Mount College, St Columbus Grammar School (Gbenoba Grammar School) and Baptist Girls Model High School. 

Among the dignitaries in the country and diaspora from my City that have stood out in their career and callings in life are the Founder and Chairman of Zenith Bank Plc Mr Jim Ovia, CBN Governor Mr Godwin Emefiele, The Executive Governor of Delta State senator Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, the Chairman/publisher of Thisday newspapers Mr Nduka Obiagbena, one time chairman of the League Management Company of Nigeria Professional Football League Mr Nduka Irabor, Former Nigerian ambassador to Sierra Leone Amb Godson Echiegile, the primate of the Anglican church of Nigeria, Archbishop Nicolas Okoh and several others time and space will not permit me to mention.

The dominant occupations in the city are Teaching, Farming and Business of all kind. In my city, bike riding is very common that the number of bike exceeds the number of cars. The presence of two institutions of higher learning in my city, the College of Education and The State School of Nursing makes it home to many as well for business opportunities.
