Is this in a public or private hospital?...I guess it's private..Why can't he equip Imsu teaching hospital with this facilities so that they can be accredited and graduate it's medical students that has been rotting away in that school for the past 15 years?...Keep fooling IMO people..

Nigerian medical doctors and researchers have
been challenged to dig deeper into finding a cure
for the Ebola disease rather than wait on the
western world for a solution.
Imo state Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha gave
the charge at the swearing-in /induction ceremony
of the 6th set of Imo State University medical
doctors held at the University Teaching Hospital
(IMSUTH) auditorium, Orlu.
Owelle Okorocha who promised that the Imo
Rescue Mission government will continue to
provide the needed infrastructural and medical/
research equipments to the institution to ensure that medical doctors come
out their best , urged the new doctors to see their calling into the medical
profession as service to God and humanity.
He congratulated the 56 grandaunts from the school and pledged a cash gift of
N500, 00 to the overall best graduating student in medicine and surgery, Miss
Olaedo Marcellina Izuagba as well as offered automatic employment to the
young doctor upon the completion of her Housemanship.
Earlier, the Chief Medical Director, Imo State University Teaching Hospital, Dr
Fredrick Anolue the Imo Rescue government for the improved infrastructural
development of the institution and for the industrial harmony in the
University through the implementation of the CONHESS/CONMESS salary for
health workers in the institution.
Dr Anolue noted that the Protuex digital X-ray, Flourascopy, Computerized
Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) will soon be operational
in the Hospital and reaffirmed the genuine commitment of IMSUTH staff in
playing its synergistic and complementary role with the University in training
of various health professionals in Imo State.
The CMD further disclosed plans by the institution to develop centres of
excellence in Minimal Access Surgery, Neuro-surgery and radiology. He
therefore appealed to government to assist in providing working tools for
some of the staff already trained in Germany, India and South Africa to
perform.
The event which was chaired by the Pro Chancellor, Imo State University,
Mazi Clement Owunna, featured the induction of the newly qualified medical
doctors and presentation of Certificate of Merit and a cheque of N100, 000 to
the overall best graduating medical student, Olaedo Mercellina Izuagba for
outstanding performance.
Present at the event were the Secretary to Government of Imo State, Prof
Anthony Anwuka, Commissioner for Health, Dr Edward Ihejirika, the Vice
Chancellor, Imo State University, Prof Alloy Awuzie, past Medical Directors of
IMSUTH and other well meaning citizens of the State.

http://okgist.com.ng/blog/2013/09/after-15-years-imo-state-university-graduates-first-set-55-medical-doctors/

At last, the Imo State University Teaching Hospital
Orlu, has finally graduated 55 of its fifth set of medical
doctors, fifteen years after. Okgist gathered that the fresh medical graduands had spent not less than 15 years
at the medical institution due to the period of non-accreditation of the medical programme as well as strikes.
At the oath-taking ceremony yesterday, a member
of the Federal House of Representatives, Jerry Alagbaso,
who chaired the event, had challenged the new medical
doctors to be good ambassadors of their alma-mater and
uphold the ethics of the profession.
The law maker admonished them to be religious in
discharging their professional obligations saying
“bear in mind that you have the supreme task of saving lives first before any other thing.”
Alagbaso, applauded the Chief Medical Director of
IMSUTH, Dr. Chijioke Nzewuihe, management of both Imo
State University and IMSUTH for making the graduation
of the doctors a reality.
Vice Chancellor of IMSU, Prof. Ukachukwu Awuzie,
in his speech, had expressed satisfaction with the
graduating doctors for persevering to the end.
Awuzie also appreciated their parents for toiling
day and night to make the dreams of their children come
through.
The Chief Medical Director of IMSUTH, Dr. Chijioke
Nzewuihe, described the graduation of the doctors as historic and unique, stating, “under my administration,
two sets of doctors have been turned out.”
Nzewuihe said that the target of IMSUTH is to embark on programmes and services that will make the
institution a centre of excellence and promised to give his best
towards the objective. High points of the colourful ceremony were the formal induction of the 55 new doctors
after their professional oath.

Okorocha handlers as usual, junior liars, junior propagandists.

How can you call a concerned citizen Okorocha's handler? He is right to some extent with regards to some projects like hotels and ecumenical center but that of IMSU is purely politics that could destabilise the State. For the sake of the innocent ones

Veteran Journalist and respected
statesman,Mr Uche Ezechukwu was
recently in Owerr,Imo State where he
was hosted with other dignitaries by
Owelle Rochas Okorocha.
After a visit to Governor Ochorocha's
Palace in the heart of the City and the
Government House, his verdict:
Government House Owerri is like a
kitchen compared to Rochas's Palace:
This is his Unedited statement as posted
on his facebook:
"Yesterday, Sunday, we – Governor Aliyu
Wamakko and us on his entourage – were
hosted for hours at the personal residence
of Governor Rochas Okorocha in Owerri
city. The place is nicknamed ‘The Ranch’
and is the largest private residence that I
have ever seen (and I have seen many). It
is on a plot of several hectares of land,
which, as I learnt, was purchased 14 years
ago by Rochas from a construction
company, Spibat.
The main building, with
the furnishings and the décor would dwarf
the castles of French kings in splendour
and opulence. As a student in France and
Germany I visited several castles in Europe
but compared to The Ranch, they are like
boys quarters.
We were clearly not impressed because it
appears clueless to have that size of such
residential building that cannot be
maintained by any private person. We
politely turned down the offer for a guided
tour of the complex that can perfectly
accommodate a teaching hospital or a
moderate sized university. I wondered
when the at-least 150 rooms would be fully
occupied.
This morning, we went to the Governor’s
Lodge for our breakfast and were surprised
to see that the Government House is like a
kitchen, in size and equipment, when
compared to the governor’s private
residence. Rochas built that house with his
money,
I suppose, but I feel it is an
investment wasted. Or is it poverty that is
worrying me?"

rochas okorocha only had a piece of land which could contain a hotel there before he was made governor. it was upon assuming office as a governor that he illegally acquired all the other parcels of land that has expanded the place into a giant private village today. say the truth and stop being a fool.
most of the land, he forcefully acquired under the name of the imo state government by forcefully revoking the C of O of the original owners, only to sell them all to himself while as a sitting governor.
u continue to mortgage ur future by standing for nothing but lies.
do u know about that previous site in his ogboko where he said he was moving IMSU to? after that plan was mooted, are u aware he has now claimed all that land to himself and id now building a PRIVATE university there?

Its in Mbieri a town near Owerri in Imo State. Actually Mbaitoli LGA. It was there before he became Governor. He has hotels also in Owerri that were equally there long before he became Governor. His multi-storey Rochas foundation glass house located opposite Rockview hotel has also been there for ages. He invested at home right from time. He equally has a castle at Ogboko which has been existing for years.

Ibaka seaport must be built anything less is an official declaration of economic civil war on the eastern region. Any leader whether APC or PDP that tries to frustrate that project will be in more trouble than they bargained for.

This is the most natural seaport that requires no dredging like ports in lagos. It can contain the biggest container ships in the world comfortably. If tribalism frustrate this project, then i will know that nigeria is officiallly the most backward nation on the planet.

If you are up to date you should have known Ibaka is dead. A new site has been proposed at Ibeno and it is to be called Ibom seaport. You can only help yourself and not depend on others.

The reason while am not supporting Jonathan is just for only two things and they are SNB and Immigration tragedy.

These are the two places Jonathan failed me as leader, but compare and contrast Jonathan with past leaders he is miles ahead of them.





So wrong for you to use the word hate. One cannot give what he does not have and our priority remains to protect our interest. You can as well thank the Northerners that built roads, Airports, Onne port etc that they did it for Igbos but we are facing reality here.

@Abagworo,
It seems you have nothing positive to contribute on this pan Igbo thread than your usual antagonism.

Leave Akpabio and Amaechi supremacy out of this thread.

There is nothing effective lobbing can't do when it is directed to someone/party that shares your vision and has soft-spot for your ideologies and predicaments.

There is no Amaechi and Akpabio here but reality. Do you think even Rivers people will support dredging of Niger? I am real and offer real contribution.

Do you think that the forces that stopped Ibaka all these years will suddenly cease to exist? Why are Onne and Calabar ports still under utilised despite having a President from South-south? What lead to the dearth of some expensive visionary investments like Tinapa?

Summary of what I believe is that we need sincere headcount to know our population distribution and plan based on that. 2ndly we need freedom to grow at our pace either through federalism or outright independence. Alternatively if an Igbo becomes President our interest will be protected like other parts of Nigeria.

1 True federalism

2 Supporting Igbo Presidency

3 Pushing for complete independence.

Out of the 3, number 1 the most achievable.

As the optimistic were expecting to start importing through Ibaka in 2015, they got a shocker by December 2014

http://www.vanguardngr.com/2014/12/ibaka-deep-sea-port-relocated-new-site/

Godfrey Bivbere & Olaitan Ayoola
THE proposed Ibaka deep sea port, Akwa Ibom, has been relocated
to Ibeno Local Government Area, while the name has been
changed to Ibom from Ibaka.
FPSO Vessel
Vanguard gathered that the project analysis done by a foreign
consultant and Transaction Advisers, FELAC Concept and Marine
and Transport Business Solutions, MTBS, of Netherlands, showed
that the port project would not be commercially viable if sited at
Ibaka due to its long distance from the sea..
A source close to the Ministerial Steering and Delivery Committee
for the port who spoke to Vanguard, explained that the project
had to be moved initially to Okposo. The source further noted that
the same problem of distance from the sea as well as the dense
population, made it non-viable.
The source said that the soil analysis on Okposo showed that the
earth there is marshy which would further drive up the cost of
construction should it be sited there.
The source pointed out that the project had to be moved again to
the third site at Ibeno Local Government Area and the name had
to be changed from Ibaka to Ibom, like all other projects of the
state to give it a state colouration.
The distance from the new site to the sea is about 20 nautical
kilometres and also it is closer to the connecting expressway for
quick evacuation of consignments from the port at completion, the
source disclosed.
The source also said that the area is less populated, making
compensation for displaced persons easy, as well as making the
new site for the project commercially viable.
The transport ministry source said that one of the major
challenges faced by the committee at the new site was the
presence of under-ground oil pipelines.
The source explained that the Committee held several meetings
with the Department of Petroleum Resources, DPR, National
Petroleum Investment Management Services, NAPIMS, and the
various oil companies on how to work around the pipelines.
The oil companies agreed to relocate some of the pipelines that
were no longer active away from the area to aid quick construction
of the port.
The source explained that construction work on the project is
expected to commence sometime next year on a Public, Private
Partnership.
It added that a few little details left on the part of government
would soon be taken care of for construction work to commence.
On financing, the source disclosed that the private sector is
expected to have 60 percent while the Federal and state
governments are expected to hold 20 percent each. According to
the source, “No government can fund a port project but it can
only be achieved through a Public/Private sector partnership.”
Foreign concerns are already making inquires on what is required
to partake in the financing of the project.

Akwa Ibom, NPA set 2015 target for Ibaka Deep sea port
…Akpabio grants NPA C of O for port area
Barring any last minute changes, the proposed Ibaka Deep sea port would start receiving ocean lines not
later than 2015, Executive Governor of Akwa Ibom State Chief Godswill Akpabio and the Managing Director of
Nigerian Ports Authority, Engr. Omar Suleiman have hinted.
Governor Akpabio and Engr. Suleiman who expressed the resolve on Monday in Abuja at a brief event to
mark the official hand over of the Certificate of Occupancy (C of O) of the over 5580 Sq meters of land area
for the citing of the new port, said all infrastructures needed to fast -track the early completion of the port
will be provided. This is even as the Governor pledged to within one month award contract for the
dualisation of the port main access road to link the East –West road with a view to making it more
intermodal
The state Government equally handed over the master plan of the port to the Managing Director of NPA at
the event.
He said the state was spurred to fast-track work on the surveying and parceling out of the land where the
port will be cited after the last visit of President Goodluck Jonathan to the state where he pledged support
for citing of project in an area that has comparative advantage rather than based on ethnic sentiments.
Governor Akpabio noted that the infrastructures for a deep sea port is huge, saying the state is prepared to
offer assistance to NPA at whatever point it will be needed. He added that his government is fully ready to
partner with the Organisation to ensure that the necessary infrastructure for effective take-off of the port is
provided. “Whatever support that may be required to ensure that a big ocean going Liner comes to the port
by 2015 will be provided by the state government.
He allayed fears of security of investment in the port in view of the menace of the maritime pirates in the
Nigerian territorial waters, saying that the federal government has granted the state it’s request to establish
full military presence in that location. “Now we have NN Jubilee in the area, so with the presence of the
Army, Navy, complementing the Marine Police, there will be adequate security of investments as the area
will be a no go area for maritime robbers and other criminals.” The Governor envisages that when the multi-
billion naira port project is completed, it will be the hub of oil and gas operation in the Gulf of Guinea.
The Ibaka port is said to be between 17 and 18 meters draught without dredging and its quay area will
span over two miles (length). It is hoped that on completion, mega vessels of over 10,000 TEUs will be
calling at the port and that will make it the largest in the region.
Earlier, the Managing Director of NPA expressing delight in the gesture of the Governor noted that the move
to establish the deep sea port is a major step in the nation’s quest of becoming the hub of maritime
operation in the West and Central African sub-region.
He noted that what is needed to realize the project is infrastructure, assuring that Ports Authority will
partner with Akwa Ibom State to ensure that the necessary infrastructure is provided. He disclosed that the
port project is intermodal that sees the construction of port access roads and mono- rail to ensure easy
evacuation of goods out of the port.
He said the journey towards the construction of the Ibaka deep sea port dates back to the 70s but had not
been taken with seriousness it deserves. “But with the new vision and the transformation agenda of
President Goodluck Jonathan the development of the port has become a must if the country is to achieve its
dream of becoming the hub port of the sub-region.

Akwa Ibom begins
construction of Ibaka
seaport

BAYO AKOMOLAFE
The Akwa Ibom Government is to embark
on the construction of Ibaka Deep
Seaport in partnership with the Federal
Government. Its Governor, Godswill
Akpabio dropped the hint at a gala
night organised in honour of the visiting
U.S. Consul-General in Nigeria, Mr Jeffrey
Hawkins.
The U.S. consul-general was accompanied
by the Minister of State for Trade and
Investment, Mr Samuel Ortom. Akpabio
explained that the seaport project was a
major industrial concern for Akwa Ibom.
The governor stressed the need for
continuous partnership between Nigeria
and the U.S. in the promotion of trade
and investments. The Ibaka Deep Seaport
is a component of the envisaged Ibom
Industrial City. Its ground-breaking
ceremony took place in 2009 at Mbo Local
Government Area of the state.
The Ibom Industrial City is also expected
to host oil and gas activities with
refineries, petrochemical and fertiliser
plants, coupled with manufacturing,
packaging, bulk-breaking and small
equipment factories.
Akpabio had noted that the 129
kilometres stretch of land at the Ibaka
Port area would be a self-sustaining
industrial city. The governor declared:
“With Ibaka deep seaport, we will have a
seaport that will not require perennial
dredging. Investors will be in business

if APC won't frustrated seaport in Akwa Ibom, Lagosians will see the shocker of their lives.

In Medina Estate where I live, 2/3 of the people here are igbo's. If you know someone on Victoria Island, let them check the statistics for you, from Ikoyi to Lekki, what percentage of Igbos live in those areas …

They have pushed for and gotten approval to build a new seaport in Lekki.
Lets hope GEJ wins elections, he will help Akwa Ibom build her own seaport, by 2020 you will see what the south East Will look like.


Why do Igbos have a kind of thinking that seems not to understand politics. The reality is that only an Igbo President can implement what you are hoping Jonathan can do in next four years which he could not do in the past 5 years. The Ibaka port has been a fraud. A lot of people believed it to be real earlier.

Work towards achieving true federalism, producing a President or outright independence. Jonathan's allegiance is with Ijaws and Fulanis. Not Igbos or even Ibibio, Urhobo etc. He is even canvassing for Yoruba support. You all are irrelevant in this admin.

How can someone take schools that are already underfunded and announce they're free. Then what?
Okorocha and Mba are problems of the highest order.

There's no where in the world where there's free education. Even in the US you will pay a tax increase based on what schools are near you. That increase in your property tax goes directly to that school so you're paying for the school in your area and children MUST go to the school in their 'district' or, the school their parents are paying for. So it's paid education advertised as free to keep people happy.

Last week, Lower Saxony made itself the final state in
Germany to do away with any public university
tuition whatsoever . You read that right. As of now, all
state-run universities in the Federal Republic—legendary
institutions that put the Bildung in Bildungsroman , like
the Universität Heidelberg , the Universität München ,
or the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin—cost exactly
nichts . (By the way, they weren’t exactly breaking the
bank before, with semester fees of about EUR 500, or
$630 , which is often less than an American student
spends on books —but even that amount was
considered “unjust” by Hamburg senator Dorothee
Stapelfeldt.)

Free education doesn't mean low quality education. Unfortunately in Nigeria it is. Go to south korea, their public school children with free education will destroy most nigerian children that go to private school in math and science.

My proposal calls for using the savings from the privatisation of city schools to trippling the investment in rural education and poor families.

I am surprised that in this serious discussion someone came up with falsehood and unverified information just to feel good. There is no evidence of fall in standard of education in Imo State as claimed by that contributor. It is mere propaganda. Imo State still leads in JAMB and University admissions while that of Secondary was never disclosed until 2013 and there was improvement in 2014. We can only ascertain these claims when we have access to previous Wassce/Waec results. Enrollment has also increased. Let us not turn this serious discussion into a jamboree of falsehood and blackmail.

One of the most basic elements being neglected by contributors is demography. Igbos need to conduct a real head count different from Nigeria's UN backed fraudulent census. We should be able to tell our true population and distribution of our people.

For how long will Mr Jonathan fool us? This is the Shekau killed just when he was about to pick nomination form.

berem:
do you see Hope Uzodinma winning the senatorial seat again? Its gonna be a tough one with Felix Idiga joining the race.

Yes both men are loved by the people for their generosity. However Idiga is known for his attraction of NDDC roads to Orlu area during the time of his personal friend Timi Alaibe while Uzodinma is a free giver. He helps the needy without requesting any form of pay back. Let Uzodinma go one more and then Idiga can succeed him in 2019. I am warming up for either governorship or Senate in 2023.

Schematics:
They can use the NEROS Stadium Nanka though almost 85% completed! Except if NEROS is about to float a club that will play the national league.

Impressive! Another evidence of the can do spirit of Igbos. Some other people are busy waiting for government to build them a Stadium while this man just did it for no profit. God bless him.

Ikengawo:


What's the point of blaming the past when we're trying to look for a solutions. The status quo is unexceptionable and we'll change it. This is why I i'm not looking for solutions to involve the federal government.





Anyways. Some states have been more successful than others at retaining indigines. Abia comes to mind. We have to ask what they're doing that others, particularly Imo isn't.

I can say that though Imo is more livable than Abia, Abia is more industrial and thus there more space for business to business growth and employment (though I would wager that people don't leave Igboland looking for employment at the rate the leave looking for wealth).


In this sort of discussion all Igbos are the same and hence singling out Abia or Anambra changes nothing. An Igbo man from Nnewi living in Aba is not part of our discussion. We are rather talking of Nsukka man living in Potiskum.

Majority of Igbos outside Igboland are from a circle which covers mostly Northern Imo and Southern Anambra State. Hence most Igbos you are likely to meet trading in Maiduguri or Zungeru are likely from there. The reason is that the population density of that area is so high that the migration must occur for survival. 2ndly that area was deliberately undercounted and underfunded since the inception of Nigeria thereby leaving little resources for large population to live on. They have red infertile and yet scarce land resources facing erosion menace.
