I.diot..common remove Onitsha from your tirade as we have far better relaxation/tourism zones across our state. Anambra people don't live in Imo state neither do they ever visit there, whereas there are over 2million Imolites resident in Onitsha alone. Stop fooling yourself, Owerre is a 100% Imo state resident town as other Nigerians don't go there, neither do Igbos visit nor live there like in the case of Onitsha and Enugu.




Abagworo:

Owerri is not home of Igbos. We come from different towns and villages and we don't visit home every weekend. A Bayelsa man that goes to Owerri to relax for the weekend isn't in his home and so is it for an Onitsha man or Ngwa man that goes to Owerri for weekend. With your theory the densely populated Igbo areas would have been the preferred weekend destinations.

By home I meant Igboland. Owerri is not the village anyway so even for someone from Imo state Owerri isn't their village.

I wonder how many Bayelsa men or women for that matter go to Owerri every weekend though.

With all that has been said I still don't think Owerri is tourist destination.

We agree to disagree because neither of our opinions on this will change. We differ on definition and that's just going to have to be okay.

You wonder because you don't know. Like I wrote earlier just pay a visit and you will regret some of the things you once believed. Owerri is the top weekend destination in Rivers and Bayelsa which I am very sure of and not assumption. It used to be Port Harcourt in the past but moved to Owerri few years ago.

Igbos going to Owerri from where they live in Bayelsa and PH maybe. Which was one of my original points.

If I visit SE/SS Enugu is top of my list along with Calabar and Uyo.I'll visit Owerri if I have the time.

I'm half Rivers and lived most of my life there. Most of my friends are from Rivers or Bayelsa and I own a sizeable firm employing multiethnic and other racial personnel. I don't really need to do much sampling as my firm and environs are enough to draw a moderate reflection. However it takes visiting Owerri to notice the multiethnic and multiracial mix of the weekend visitors.

But the number of people you are talking about that you know are likely to be less than what is needed to claim a place as a tourist destination though. Yes, a visit will give an unbiased view.

Owerri is filled with slums with zero decent accommodation. I m a fan of Okorocha but the truth must be told, Awka and Onitsha are more developed than Owerri. Owerri should start developing decent housing for its people. Owerri should start building industrial estates, if not 2/3rd of Imo state people shall continue to flee to Onitsha in droves which is their obodo oyibo and greener pastures and equally the first place they saw bridges and flyovers as shown below.


Allhavesinned: Irrespectives that I am not a Fan of Rocahs or Abagworo, Owerri is more developed than Awka, Onitsha is No NO and if you are talking about Estates, come to Old Owerri and let me name some.

Aladinma Housing Estate = Uniform Bungalows with Tarred roads and Street light, A Mall, Police Station, Post Office, Primary School and Others

Aladinma Extension = same as above

Ikenegbu Layout = A Uniformed 3 floor buildings with tarred roads and with primary and secondary school

Ikenegbu Extensio. = Uniformed 3 floor and 4 floor buildings

Prefab Estate = Uniformed Bungalows and Duplex

Old FH Estate and New FH Estate along chukwuma nwaoha and egbu road shoprite

Trans Egbu Layout

Uratta west and East Layout along MCC road

GraceLand Estate = one of the best

Arugo Estate

Udenwa Estate = The best and where you see the richest

Sites and Service

Umuguma Housing = Where Young guys did wonders with mansions

Works Layout = One of the best before

Amakaohia Estate = back of Rapour Hotels

Area U, H and otger areas

Udenwa Estate Avu and lots more

Are you so drunk to put Owerri with Awka and the confusion called Onitsha in one sentence discussing planning and urbanisation.

How many people from Imo do business in Onitsha apart from the Orlu-Ideato axis because of proximity?

If you had said Aba maybe you would have made some sense. Even at that, the few Imo people doing business went to earn a leaving just the same way some Anambra went to Aba for business.

Today Owerri is arguably in the leagues of Lagos and Abuja when it comes to tourist destination.

So dont stay in one village in Ekwulobia and be talking what you have no clue about...

you are entitled to your opinion I must confess. I was in owerri recently and I really enjoyed myself, I was at the Christmas � in owerri, I even took selfie there. The whole place look beautiful. Owerri is becoming a place to be and to stay.
My problem with owerri is how they stop keke from entering the main town in owerri. I was coming from akabo area when I stop keke man and he said his last bstop is amawire..
But seriously, the tarred roads in owerri really transform the state..

You are drunk and mad at the same time to put Awka and the slum called Owerri on the same page. Owerri is a planless chaos filled with poor people.

Over 2million Imolites are today resident in Onitsha alone. Most of the rich Imolites including Orange drugs etc are all resident in Onitsha.

Onitsha is the greener pasture and abroad of Imolites. Some neighbourhoods in Onitsha are termed Imo state because of their huge population of Imolites.

Don't stay in your village in Owerri and write rubbish. Nonsense.

I can even sight Orange Drug's house in Onitsha from the picture below.

I don't know as I've never intended buying there but surely the part that falls within Urban can't go less than 15 million while Avu to Obinze could be between 3 to 10 million. Umuagwo should be between 800k and 2 million. I guessed based on my little knowledge of Owerri real estate.

Millions of Imolites resident in Onitsha begging FG to put Onitsha port to use. cool


Owerri—Following the new year message by President Muhammadu Buhari, stakeholders in Imo State, yesterday, requested for a seaport to be established in the South-East zone.


Sea port

They made their views known to Vanguard, in Owerri, while reacting to Buhari’s New Year message.

Some argued that the Igbo make up 80 percent of importers of foreign goods in the country and it was wrong for the Federal Government not to consider the zone for a seaport.

They said the neglect of the South-East people has been the reason the zone has remained underdeveloped.

On the issue of restructuring, they asked President Buhari not to shy away from the reality that what the country needed most is total restructuring.

They reasoned that the inability of the Federal Government to listen to Nigerians was the bane of development in the county.

They added that the 2014 confab report could begin a process for a total restructuring of Nigeria, for the betterment of Nigerians.

In his view on President Buhari’s New Year message, a lawyer and human rights activist, Mr. Wisdom Durueke, said: “The New Year message by the government in this country has become an annual ritual. The approach is not organised. When you politicize development, you lose out what you intend to achieve.

“One thing we need to know is that we have been talking about it from the time of Shagari, we have been taking about dredging Oguta, we have talked about Onitsha.

“For me, I do not see any reason why the Federal Government cannot get serious in these areas too. We can have two, three seaports as far as I am concerned. The expected work on Onitsha is abandoned.

“So, I want to say, there is nothing wrong in Mr. President looking at his speech and saying, add Onitsha and Oguta.

“On the issue of restructuring, let me quickly say that there are different school of thoughts on restructuring. Restructuring does not mean balkanization of the country. I think that is where the Federal Government is getting it wrong.

“When you talk of restructuring, you talk of socio-economic and political restructuring of the country. It is to show equity and to promote integration and coexistence. What the federal government should do is to open the door of discussion on the issue of restructuring.”

Speaking also the National President of Igbo National Council, INC, Mr. Chilos Godsent, “We believe that Nigeria should be restructured to be able to have the enabling ground for everything to move in the right direction.

“We are calling for the total restructuring of the polity. A conference of the people, call it National Conference, call it conference of the people.

“Where contributions will emanate from the different continents nations that make up the Nigeria state, we know that the present National Assembly cannot give us an effective constitution that will be all inclusive restructuring.

“Because we know that some of the National Assembly members are not voted by the people, they rigged themselves, they bought the votes through their God-farthers’.

“The President should invoke the 2014 report of the National conference, that was organized by the last regime, that alone can begin a process.

“This stand of the Presidency on the issue of restructuring will affect the Southeast zone, in all ramifications. The present structure of Nigeria does not encourage merit, hard work, it will affect the Southeast because it is the greatest loser in the whole arrangement.

“The Southeast zone needs Seaport more than any part of this country. The Southeast people are the more than 80 percent importers of foreign goods. So, we need a seaport. Let me also, say this the President should make the already established seaports functional before erecting a new one. If not I call it a monumental waste of funds.”

According to Chibike Onyema, “This new year message of a thing ,I am very tired and I want Nigerians to read their own new Year message to their leaders. Nigerians should find a to do away with these crop of politicians. They have brought us more sadness than joy. This what I can say about the new year message of the president.”

When you learn to think critically and not sounding off like an Ochanja market stark illiterate then we can cross swords.

Orange Drugs that is contributing massively to the IGR of Anambra State appears to your scrambled mind like a peripathetic economic migrant..

Are you not ashamed to ascribe a figure of two million to Imo people in Onitsha? You are implying that more than 30% of Anambra total population are Imo indigenes meaning that Imo people are running your state.

I have been reading the sundry embarrassment you have been doing to yourself here ostensibly in trying to cast aspersions on everything Imo State.

It might interest you to remember that momentum is with Imo State as the epicenter of knowledge and enlightenment in Igboland.

Yes Imo state people as migrants contributes to the economy of another state because their own state failed to provide the enabling environment for them to thrive at home unless they travel to Anambra just like Orange Drugs did.

Yes, there are over 2million Imolites resident in Onitsha alone who fled their state for economic survival.

Imo state is the center of prostitution and not knowledge/education. If not tell me why you have not produced Azikiwes, Ojukwus, Ekwuemes, Achebes, Emeagwalis, Soludos, Chimamandas. etc etc..the list is almost endless.

Rochas said the statues were to honor past heroes and inculcate a desire to be great in the young children.

Lets face it. Does it mean Rochas will not mould Sam Mbakwe, the father of modern Imo state? Nor mould Prof. Chinua Achebe, the father of African literature?

How come the only people he considers heroes are former politicians and some were known for their deep corruption (Obasanjo and the missing $16 billion for NIPP or $2.8 billion suddenly missing in 1978). Even Zuma is currently undergoing impeachment process in his country for corruption. Are these the types of people that we want the future generation to emulate?

Soon, we shall start erecting statues of coup plotters, armed robbers and other unfortunate characters responsible for the state of affairs today in Nigeria.
