Excellent idea Bro !
I wish Rochas can see this. But the funny thing is that Nigerian politicians rarely want to give you anything good that will help you escape poverty and not needing their handouts. So, hopefully, a sharp business man can see the cost of these containers may be much less than a formal shop and it's fire proof.
If only Rochas can stop buying people those old passat cars and invest in something like this that will grow the industrial base of the state and create sustainable employment.
Artisans can be given these container shops to produce shoes, slippers, handbags, make traditional dresses, women's hats, arts and craft, painted art work or sculptures, polythene bags, toilet rolls etc. These things can give people a true job to feed their families instead of a used car that earns you N5,000 naira today, then breaks down tomorrow and cost N15,000 to repair.

let's refine this idea.
First off there's the issue of power: Using generators would pollute the atmosphere and there's also the cost of the gas.
I propose the use of generators for a while until the state government finishes the building of a power plant that would serve that area
The government could also sell subsidized fuel for generators at those warehouses you mentioned
There's also the issue of infrastructure and environment
Take for instance the example of Aba. Roads are bad there and the environment is dirty. It's hard to transport products on bad roads. Also a
bad environment drives off potential customers and investors.
The state government should build quality roads( I recommend concrete) that are regularly maintained in that area. And the government shouldn't build open gutters!
There should also be a policy there where trash is not tolerated. Big garbage bins should be provided and these bins must be cleaned out daily. Owerri is the capital of Imo and should have a sense of decency at least to outsiders which include investors.
Also this sector must be regulated and must become formal. We don't want an issue of fake products that blatantly copy the original like in Aba.
We also don't want an issue wherein people produce medicines and sell not being certified with their medicines being fake. And so on...
Now considering the issue of these businesses to be formal:
These business must be registered(to stem illegal production as well as to keep track of the development of the area) but perhaps a little time after the place has developed. I've heard it takes time to register a company in Nigeria.
These businesses must be taxed but there should be at least a a 3-year tax relief scheme to allow the place to grow. Tax is good for generating the income of the state making the state richer.
Any other suggestions?

I hope we have investors here. This is an untapped opportunity!
|Re: Few Pics From Imo State by Pchidexy(m): 11:02am On Nov 26, 2017|
Ikengawo:Nice idea but there is no electricity to power the industries. The cost of doing business in this country is very high. Imported products are still way cheaper. Without constant and affordable electricity, Nigeria is doomed. Sorry my friend but your ideas are merely a dream.
|Re: Few Pics From Imo State by Incredibleme: 2:17pm On Nov 26, 2017|
Pchidexy:Oga didn't you see where he mentioned the gas power plant at Ohaji/Egbema and it would be utilized for the project? His ideas are not merely a dream, they are realistic and attainable. Change your pessimistic attitude, it would do you no good.
The only major draw back would be the finance, but that itself wouldn't be much of an issue as we can borrow or make it a long term plan using our own available funds to sponsor it. Public-private partnership is another effective (or most effective) avenue to exploit.
|Re: Few Pics From Imo State by Ikengawo: 5:48pm On Nov 26, 2017|
you're right, but there would have to be stations that produce power. Perhaps a block of 100 share a single power source. To build a plant to power all of them is above this country's capabilities, but small easy to manage bulk stations, no issue.
|Re: Few Pics From Imo State by Pchidexy(m): 5:50pm On Nov 26, 2017|
Incredibleme:Listen good sir, Okorocha is not interested in all these. No Nigerian politician is interested in any of these suggestions.
Your ideas are good but I will like you to start up a company in Nigeria to know how hard it is for businesses to survive in Nigeria.
Nigeria without electricity is doomed. For your information the Egbema gas power plant is a hoax. Nothing real has been put in place there.

Orlu and Okigwe Ajoka. In the same Imo state.
Enjoy a special Imo Governor obsessed with the phenomenon of State Capital;
a governor who believes that the Capital Development Budget of a State is Budget for Building up whatever the governor likes in the State Capital, while rest of the state is in dilapidation.
|Re: Few Pics From Imo State by imhotep: 7:19pm On Nov 27, 2017|
|Re: Few Pics From Imo State by kikake: 7:47pm On Nov 27, 2017|
imhotep:Agreed. But next guber election, Owerri shall vote even a goat from Owerri before any candidate supported by Owelle.
Owerri duped Owelle big time by asking him to "build us a befitting state capital like Dubai in Africa before attending to other areas of Imo state". Owelle the most apolitical agreed. Now he is like a political orphan in Imo state.
|Re: Few Pics From Imo State by imhotep: 7:49pm On Nov 27, 2017|
kikake:I agree. I really hate the presence of AP-Cheat in IMO state

Industrial layout part II
So the issue of electricity has been brought up, and I started thinking of how the problem can be solved. Then the solution fell on my lap. The #1 commodity that will be in demand in this system is power.
So then, why not manufacture it?
If I buy one container sized factory. And will it with 4-6 industrial scale diesel generators. Then charged other container-factory owners to have power from the beginning of the work day till the end non-stop, I will be rich. There for the fix to the electric plan is to stop treating electricity as a government project and more as a business. Allow container owners to also manufacture and sell power to other container owners out of their containers.
The chinese on several occasions have turned entire containers into generators

Gradually things are shaping up and one cant help but appreciate the quality of roads in Owerri.
|Re: Few Pics From Imo State by kikake: 6:32pm On Nov 30, 2017|
This non-Igbo man still de leave the impression that Owerri is Imo state.
A state was created for uniform development of the state.
It's illegal for a state governor to concentrate his development efforts only in the state capital, while other parts of the state decay - as in Imo state of Okorocha.
Rome Empire uniformly built other Roman cities' infrastructures the same time Rome was being built.
Una attended Almajiri school in your north, but come to Imo state to promote Apartheid governance system - politically and economically over-empower the land owners and indegene from the state capital, but impoverish people in the other areas of the state outside Owerri.
You have nobody to educate you on the EVILS OF APARTHEID SYSTEM.

LasGidiOwner:Nwokem, how do you know he is a poor man? How do we even believe you are who you claim to be? You are too aggresive, divisive and backward with your post to pass for anything Igbo. Please, kindly take a backsit and allow Igbo to forge on with her "unity" progressive agenda.

LasGidiOwner:Is that all you can muster? its obvious you are pained . If truely you are nwafo, stop attacking Igbos, and concentrate your energy in building synergy among all Igboid group, including our brothers accross the river. Dare this, then we will consider taking you serious.
|Re: Few Pics From Imo State by LasGidiOwner: 11:16am On Dec 04, 2017|
Why is my comment paining you? Lol
Are you Igbo? Are Abakaleke people Igbo? LOL
Nomadic gala hawker.
|Re: Few Pics From Imo State by Alexus23: 11:21am On Dec 04, 2017|
LasGidiOwner:Now, you just open your nyash. You just made it clear that you are not Igbo . Nobody should take this character serious again. I'm from Abakalaki, and I'm proudly Igbo. Can you kindly hug a transformer now
|Re: Few Pics From Imo State by LasGidiOwner: 11:25am On Dec 04, 2017|
Abakaleke people are almajiri-igbos. You are a 3rd class white washed Igbo. Ebonyi people are direct descendant of hausa almajiri from Taraba. Go and ask your father to tell you the truth. LOL
