You are dividing Orlu zone according to your personal wish and not according to reality. Mgbidi, Awo, Oguta, Ohaji, Egbema are all in Orlu zone. So are Ideato North and South, Oru East and West, Orlu, Orsu, Isu, Nwangele, Nkwerre and Njaba. List what is not in Orlu zone
1) IMSUTH, Imopoly, Nursing school Okporo and Amaigbo
2) Oil rich fields at Oguta, Izombe, Awo, Egbema and Ohaji
3) Pharmaceutical industries, Heineken brewery and other wine manufacturers are there.
4) The highest concentration of Rich people in Imo State and one of the highest in Nigeria is in Orlu zone. It is just a matter of investing home in other things other than building duplex.
This someone's house in Orlu

Igbos did not fare better under Jonathan. We did under Obasanjo. All the Igbo appointees under Obasanjo did their best from Ezekwesili to Soludo to Akunyili to Iweala to Okereke Onyiuke to Ernest Ndukwe to Barth Nnaji etc. The Owerri-Onitsha road even though has started deteriorating from age was equally done by Obasanjo. We must tell ourselves this plain truth.
The Igbos should stop fighting any Igboman that comes into national limelight. Nobody is a Saint but Igbos always try to pull down their own. You can check the history from Zik to Ekwueme to Orji Kalu. Even when Odili nearly emerged Yar'adua's VP he was removed on grounds of having dual loyalty to Igbo and South south while Igbos neglected him.

Your argument is pointless. Even if I show 50 projects in Orlu zone, you will try to belittle them. So its of no use.

The emotion you and others attached in justifying the state of that road has never come into play when Imo State is involved. Isn't it hypocritical? Post picture of one bad road in Imo State and Igbos are everywhere condemning us Imolites instead of seeing the injustice against all of us Igbos.
|Politics / Re: Exposing The Real Rochas Okorocha! Imo People, Are U Hypnotized & Jazzed? (pics) by Abagworo(m): 7:02pm On Oct 09|
Imo is the best State in the Southeast. By the time a lot of pictures will emerge showing the bad side of other States you'll appreciate Okorocha.

Your papa there. Which solution have you ever suggested to improve Igboland? None! At the end of the day my ideas will always be the best to solve our infrastructural challenges. You can hate me for being truthful but don't hate my ideas on our development.
|Politics / Re: Enugu, The Pride Of The East. by Abagworo(m): 11:22am On Oct 09|
During the peak oil boom Igbos failed to gain meaningful infrastructural development. Jonathan duped Igbos and they are still yet to admit that truth but have resorted to attacking APC who just got into power inheriting a weak and almost dead economy.
We were scammed for 12 years with the 2nd Niger bridge and Niger dredging and Onitsha port. I saw all that and proposed we do some of these infrastructural developments ourselves. It is a matter of establishing special trustfund where all Igbos contribute funds for railways and roads linking all parts of Southeast.

The reality is that all States face financial crisis. It is imminent as there has been a sudden 40% drop in monthly income. A man earning 100k who suddenly dropped to 60k will have to adjust to face the new reality.

Its not the fault of Government. When the people are hostile, investors look for friendlier communities. The militant era eqyally caused a mass relocation of company high earners from Rivers to Lagos.
|Politics / Re: Delta State: N773 Billion Debt. Largest In Nigeria. What Was Done With The Debt? by Abagworo(m): 7:26am On Oct 09|
Lagos has by far the highest external debt. The 700 billion of Delta is a combination of all debts of which that of Lagos might exceed 200billion.

This is the kind of punch I expected from Igbos. That was the propaganda employed by Gowon in Rivers State. Prior to the war, Igbos from hinterland were at the helm of affairs leaving Rivers people with the crumbs on the guise of all of us are Igbos. Same needs to be applied to Lagos.

Yar'Adua led us into this crisis by killing an unarmed Yusuf. Jonathan's mistake was thinking Boko Haram was a conspiracy by North to disrupt his Government. If he had taken it for what it really was, we wouldn't have gotten to this.
|Politics / Re: Exposing The Real Rochas Okorocha by Abagworo(m): 8:10pm On Oct 07|
Ohakim and Udenwa tried in their own ways but Okorocha is better by a wide margin. Okorocha has been fighting a long standing battle with former political heavy weights both within and outside Imo State. His departure from APGA was seen as a masterstroke to sway the love the Imo masses have for him. They planned to kill his political career this 2015 and boasted of it but just like in 2011, the masses fought for him again.
Seeing that all their tactics failed, they resorted to using the media against Okorocha but it continued to fail until radio biafra emerged. Radio Biafra sold Okorocha as fighting against Igbo interest and almost succeeded until they preached against Catholic Church which made the masses realise they were not of God but of traditional religion or Ogo nmuo. Okorocha has defeated them again.

|Politics / Re: Exposing The Real Rochas Okorocha! Imo People, Are U Hypnotized & Jazzed? (pics) by Abagworo(m): 6:21pm On Oct 07|
This only further illustrates my earlier comments. When Okorocha was in APGA they tried to dominate him but he refused and clashed with them on several occasions. He knew he was more popular across Nigeria than all of them but their plan was to kill his political career locally as was done to Orji Kalu.
Why Governors Obi And
Okorocha Are At War
— Jan 28, 2014 4:21 am | Leave a comment
They threw brickbats at each other for the
most part of last week. Governor Rochas
Okorocha of Imo State, and his Anambra
State counterpart, Mr. Peter Obi, were
literally engaged in a verbal warfare over
the dwindling political fortunes of Ndigbo
within the Nigerian context.
Governor Okorocha stoked the fire when he
blamed politicians from Anambra State for
the inability of Ndigbo to actualise their
long standing quest to produce a Nigerian
president of Igbo extraction since the
beginning of the present democratic
Governor Okorocha made the remark during
the inauguration of the South-East interim
committee of the All Progressives Congress
(APC) at the Ahiajoku Centre, Owerri, the
Imo State capital.
He said politicians from Anambra State
have the predilection to collect money from
politicians from outside the zone, and in the
process sabotage the Igbo agenda to give
the country a president that would transform
the country to a land filled with milk and
According to Governor Okorocha, politicians
from Anambra State, more often than not,
go for juicy contracts and appointments at
the federal level in every election year,
rather than join forces with their
compatriots from other states in the South-
East to fight for the realisation of the Igbo
agenda to produce a Nigerian president
from the zone.
He even alleged that former Vice President
Alex Ekwueme, as well as erstwhile
governor of the old Anambra State, Senator
Chief Jim Ifeanyichukwu Nwobodo, were
politically naïve and even aloof in the
struggle to produce a Nigerian president
from the zone. Ekwueme, a distinguished
architect, lawyer and politician hails from
Anambra State, while Nwobodo, known for
his enduring charisma, is from the present
day Enugu State.
Governor Okorocha rode to power in 2011
on the platform of the All Progressives
Grand Alliance, (APGA), but later joined the
nascent APC, where he commands
considerable respect and acceptance
among APC governors, and members of the
Governor Obi, who was also elected on the
platform of APGA, and who had remained in
the party since 2003, felt that governor
Okorocha’s statement was an inult to the
entire Anambra people.
Governor Obi, who spoke through his media
aide, Mr. Mike Udah described governor
Okorocha as a rabble-rouser, an ingrate,
and a desperate politician who joined the
APC to realise his ambition to rule the
The Anambra State chapter of Ohanaeze,
the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation,
as well joined the fray. Chief Chris Elemuo,
state chairman of the organisation, said
governor Okorocha had forgotten so soon
how APGA, widely regarded as an Igbo party
provided him the platform to become
governor. He expressed shock and dismay
that governor Okorocha dumped APGA, and
joined the APC, which he described as a
party of Northerners and Westerners.
It’s instructive that both Dr. Chris Ngige,
senator representing Anambra Central
senatorial zone in the upper legislative
chamber, and Senator Annie Okonkwo were
present at the event where governor
Okorocha made the controversial statement.
Both politicians are from Anambra State, yet
they didn’t raise even a whimper against the
statement credited to the Imo governor.
Perhaps, they choose to toe the path of
dignified silence because they share the
same party platform with Governor
The implication is that governor Obi would
have clapped for his Imo state counterpart
with both hands, if he (Okorocha) had
remained in APGA. But given the
leadership configuration in APGA; the loss
of vision as well as the crises that had
bedeviled the party since 2005, not a few
described Governor Okorocha’s exit from
APGA as a welcome development, since the
party is not in a position to provide Ndigbo
a platform to produce the president.
While Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu
Ojukwu was alive, he was the national
leader as well as the chairman of the
party’s Board of Trustees (Bot). The
founding national chairman of the party,
Chief Chekwas Okorie, who hails from Abia
State, was dethroned after a long court
battle. His position was usurped by Chief
Victor Umeh, then national treasurer of the
party. Ojukwu hailed from Anambra – the
same state where Chief Umeh comes from.
Though APGA was designed as a national
political party, its founding fathers in their
wisdom thought that first of all, it should
provide Ndigbo a platform to realize their
political and socio-economic aspirations
within the context of a united Nigeria.
But soon after Chief Okorie was squeezed
out of the party, APGA became more or less
a community party. Both Governor Obi and
Umeh come from the same Anaocha local
government area of Anambra State.
That’s not even the main issue. Some
political observers in the South-East said
Obi had surreptiously handed over APGA to
the PDP; a development which they said
would make it difficult if not impossible for
a Nigerian president of Igbo extraction to
emerge even in the next 50 years.
But in the calculation of Governor Okorocha,
APC provides a practical route for an Igbo
man to assume the highest political office in
the land. He, however, reasons that if an
Igbo man fails to become president in 2015
on the platform of APC, at least the vice
presidential slot would be given to a
politician from the zone.
Not a few say the current face-off between
Governor Obi and his Imo State counterpart
has no bearing on Okorocha’s description
of Anambra politicians as cash-and-carry
politicians. They are convinced that the
confrontation between the two Igbo
governors could be located at Okorocha’s
defection from APGA to APC.
More succinctly put, Obi seems to be
sympathetic to the PDP over its current
travails in the hands of some of its high-
heeled members who had left the party in
droves to join the APC. He also seems
unable to understand why a governor in the
South-East, and more so, one elected on the
platform of APGA should also defect to APC.
That perhaps informed the decision of
APGA, which recently pronounced him the
national leader of the party and chairman of
the party’s BoT, has gone to court to
challenge Okorocha’s defection to APC, and
ultimately use the court to remove him as

Raining abuses on me will not change the fact that Okorocha is the best out of our present political elites. Blaming him for Jonathan's wickedness won't solve the heaps of bad federal roads littered across Southeast and South south. To associate with Northerners and other Nigerians is a good thing. My business is so large and successful because I have all ethnicities including non-Africans working for me.
The man who opened this thread did as a comparison claiming Anambra is better than Imo. You can go back and check. Rochas Okorocha's only sin is refusing to support clueless Jonathan and leaving the Anambra dominated APGA for a more national APC knowing fully well that PDP has no future.

This issue is beyond Nigerisn territory. These herdsmen transverse via many routes spanning over several countries. They have a traditional route which they've been grazing for centuries but their activities seem to be moving deeper South as a result of desert encroachment. We need to plan on gradual stoppage of nomadic farming.
