Nigerians see this as survival of poor which I have refused to buy. Dirty shanties and deliberate dumping of refuse on streets is not good and Government tackling this menace should not be viewed as anti-poor.

You are the one deceiving yourself. Your type can even believe that you can make money through rituals instead of using your brain.

GOVERNOR ROCHAS OKOROCHA SAYS THE NATION’S ARMED FORCES HAVE NOT LET NIGERIANS DOWN.
- SAYS STATE GOVERNMENT WOULD RECRUIT THE LEGIONNAIRES AS VOLUNTEERS.
- TO BUILD BEFITTING HEADQUARTERS FOR THEM.
Imo State Governor and Chairman Progressive Governors’ Forum Owelle Rochas Okorocha has said that so far, the Nation’s Armed Forces have not let Nigerians down, stating that Nigerians should be proud of the Army and all the armed forces of Nigeria not minding the Challenges.
The governor who spoke at the 2018 Armed Forces Remembrance Day Celebration held at the Heroes Square Owerri on Monday, January 15, 2018 also informed that his government has decided to recruit the retired servicemen in the State into the State owned establishments, ministries and parastatals to work as volunteers.
He also announced that his administration would immediately build a befitting headquarters for the legionnaires in the State to help them conduct the affairs of their legion and to constantly remind those in positions of power the need to relate with the legionnaires, especially at this painful moment of their life.
His words “Today, we are here gathered to give honour to whom honour is due, and to once more pay our respect as it is in our custom and tradition yearly to remember those who had fallen in serving their motherland. The greatest love that a man can show is that he dies to save his friend and the greatest love a soldier can show to his nation is that he dies to save the territorial integrity of his nation. This calls for patriotism and nationalism as patriotism is simply the love for one’s country”.
He noted that “Nigeria today is passing through a very difficult time. We are having so many challenges, ranging from terrorism to activities of the evil herdsmen and those who have chosen to kill for no just reason. It comes to a point when a nation may look hopeless and helpless. This is a very difficult moment in the history of the nation, but suffice it to say that we are consoled by the fact that we have gallant soldiers who are ready to lay their lives to save our nation”.
He continued “Mine today, is to salute all of you, encourage and urge you to continue doing this job without counting cost of returns. A Hero to me is that man who fights without counting cost of return, who is willing to make sacrifice of all sorts only to serve humanity. We are proud of the Nigeria army and all the armed forces of Nigeria because you all have not let us down in what is happening in the Sambisa forest and North-East in general”.
The governor further stated “I want at this emotional moment to remember the wives of these fallen heroes. When we speak about the fallen heroes, it appears to us as men who died many years ago. There are widows in our midst who lost their husbands just two months ago, and some don’t even know what to do with their children left by their husbands who are the bread winners of the families. I urge all Nigerians to remember them at this moment, pray for them and if there is any assistance, let us all jointly give to them without counting lost of returns because their husbands served our nation without counting cost of returns”.
The governor told the legionnaires “You are willing to continue serving your fatherland even after retirement. We will like to partner with you as a state this time and period by introducing what is called the volunteerism spirit because some of you are still healthy and strong and willing to contribute your quota to the well-being of our society. We will like to engage you in the ministries, parastatals, hotels and all structures of government, to let you offer the last volunteering service to our people. I pray you find joy in doing this”.
He added “To those still living and who do not know what the future holds for them, you need not know about it, what is important is that you have chosen to fight for your nation. Please keep on, we are with you in prayers in all your efforts to make our nation peaceful. Let us uphold that very aspect of our national anthem that says though tribe and tongue may differ, in brotherhood we stand. God bless Nigeria”, he stated.

|Politics / NUT Names 10 ‘chronic’ State Debtors; Directs Teachers Not To Resume In Affected by Abagworo(m): 5:24pm On Jan 15|
The Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) has restated its position that the teachers in 10 states that are still owing salary arrears should not resume work until all arrears were paid.
Mike Ike-Ene, General-Secretary of the union, spoke on the directive in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Abuja.
Mr. Ike-Ene said that 10 out of 36 states still owed teachers several months of salary arrears in spite of the Paris Club Refund given to states by President Muhammadu Buhari.
He listed the states to include: Abia, Adamawa, Bayelsa, Benue, Delta, Ekiti, Kogi, Ondo, Kwara and Taraba, describing them as chronic debtors as far as teachers’ salaries are concerned.
According to him, Abia owes primary school teachers four months and secondary school teachers one month, Adamawa; two months to primary school teachers and one month to secondary.
“Others are Bayelsa; seven and half months to primary school teachers and four and half months to secondary, Benue owes 12 months to primary school teachers and seven months to secondary.
“Ekiti owes eight months to primary school teachers and five months to secondary, Kogi; three months to primary school teachers and three months to secondary.
“Taraba; six months to primary school teachers, Delta; four months to primary school and one month to secondary. Kwara and Ondo owe teachers three and four months’ salary arrears of 2016 respectively,’’ he explained.
Mr. Ike-Ene said that the union has directed its members in the affected states, especially the primary school teachers not to resume work until all the arrears were cleared.
He also said that NUT had in 2017, appealed to the governors concerned to use the period of the Christmas holiday to clear all the arrears, but yet some still failed to do so.
NAN reports that President Muhammadu Buhari had in 2017, advised state governors to use the Paris Club Refund to liquidate any form of arrears they owe workers. (NAN)

But it still falls way short of what was imported by Nigeria as at 2014.

This is the biggest success story in Nigerian history to me. So it took less than 3 years to go from one of the world's highest importer of rice to one of the lowest and some wailers still compare Buhari to their failed years. God bless Buhari.

Old news. I opened a thread with it then but it wasn't put up on front page. Fulani herdsmen clash is a problem across West Africa but many Ghanians erroneously refer to them as Nigerians whereas they're from Futa Jalon.
The reason fir the clashes is cultural differences in agruculture and land use. The major and long term solution is education of the herdsmen and not war against them.

Don't mind the mongers. That area has been demolished and is under reconstruction but opposition is sponsoring people to trade on the streets and litter them. Government will soon pouce on them while their sponsors will once again try to play with sentiments that Government is fighting poor people.

Rochas cannot install a successor but we Imolites will support whoever he shows us. The social media campaign against him holds no water because we have eyes and have seen. He built 500 schools when they couldn't build 10. God punish all of them old men.

Okorocha was in Orlu and Okigwe yesterday and has started more works in Orlu including dualisation of the teaching hospital road and old Owerri road. Presently there is massive works going on in and around Okigwe. The media gang up against him cannot stand a bit.

Secession is not solution to any country's problems but has been proven to worsen things especially in Africa. Look at Somalia, Eritrea and Somaliland. Even Western Sahara and Southern Sudan have not found peace. Interestingly Rwandan Hutus and Tutsis that witnessed the worst ethnic cleansing have united and are doing better now.

That photo was taken in Abuja but there are better roads in Imo please. Maybe you've not been home for long. The guy was scammed by a fraudster councilor during early times of Ohakim Goverment and he thinks he can get back his money by involving Okorocha's name.
