In addition, hope has tarred st Joseph roundabout but i want him to extend it to Nkwerre, and take up the abandoned dual carriage that leads to orlu int'l market just adjacent st Joseph

One of the first official statements of governor Hope was on the need to asphalt the long abandoned urban roads of Orlu and Okigwe. Hopefully he shall do them soon. Provided those who believe that a state was created for development of only the state capital shall not declare him enemy when he starts to do Orlu and Okigwe urban roads. Many urban roads in Owerri had been asphalted three or more times since Imo state was created, while the urban roads of Orlu that existed same time with those of Owerri are yer to see asphalt.

He is still mentioning Orlu when he has not answered my question. Bia nwoke a kee odika mmadu I wu? Stop mentioning Orlu here. Gov. Hope knows the right thing to do. Your lamentation is not needed.
You claimed to come from Orlu while you can not respond me immediately, so you have not finished searching for Orlu online? Thank God most of the things I wrote can not been seen online.
You said Bishop shanaghan polytechnic does not exist in Orlu, Lol I'm laughing in kafanchan. My fellow Orlu man!!!
I won't say anything until you respond to my write-up.
Hope nairalanders can see us now? I know you may like to cover yourself up claiming that you don't want to respond me.
Brother, mpam wu onye Orlu oo, o wudi mmam wu onye Abia state, nwanyi Aba for that matter. And genology demands that you follow your paternity meaning that a wu m nwoke Orlu. Please we did not make you our Orlu mouth piece and stop speaking on our behalf because you are not one of us and a liar for that matter.
|Re: Few Pics From Imo State by kikake: 9:55am On May 19|
Go and ask anyone from Orlu:
1) public water supply system existed in Orlu before Imo state was created. The tall and huge water overhead tank is in between Amaifeke and Owerrebeiri. Orlu was not like your rural village before Imo state was created.
2) Orlu township stadium existed long before the civil war. It was not walled then but started to be fenced after the civil war. Soldiers with koboko from Nigeria Army’s 20 Battalion Orlu used to guard round the fence of Orlu township stadium each time matches were played in the stadium. The soldiers would flog anyone who tried to force himself through the fence into the stadium.
Udenwa government merely added much more value to the stadium. Ask anyone from Orlu born before Imo state was created.
Orlu could have developed more than Owerri if former governor Evan Enwrem had built the new water supply project earmarked for Orlu zone by Mbakwe; if a tertiary education institution had been established in Orlu.
Whoever is from Orlu who reads what you write about Orlu knows that you are not from Orlu urban local government area.

Whether like it or not.. Government would always focus Infrastructure on capital cities than other urban areas, that's the sane thing to do. Especially where there's scarcity of resources
|Re: Few Pics From Imo State by NwaforIgbo: 10:27am On May 19|
There's no point competing and comparing Orlu with Owerri.

Nigeria’s government does not focus on developing only Abuja under any circumstance. If Owerri is abandoned by government of Nigeria for one year, development in Owerri shall crumble n less than six months, but the way IMSG abandoned Orlu since Imo state was created, Orlu is shrinking, no water supply, no tertiary education institution.
No matter how scarce resources go down, Nigeria’s government will still distribute federal allocations to all the states and local government areas for development purposes.
In Imo state, people like you made an unwritten law: “IMSG must first develop Owerri state capital.’ Since the unwritten law, Owerri has expanded beyond what you bargained for and into the rural villages and communities in Owerri zone. Government concentration on development of Owerri makes Orlu depopulated and shrinking, because governors build almost all yearly infrastructures in Owerri to match the growing population and expanding Owerri.
Enough of that your mindset of state capital must be first developed by government.
London is the capital of the UK. But London did not first develop before Birmingham, Manchester, Coventry, Glasgow etc.
Washington DC is the capital of USA but is not developed by government first before other US cities. Many US state capitals are less developed than other cities in the same state.

For billionaires to establish industries all over Imo state, enabling facilities like security, good inter local government areas and interstate roads, public water supply system, have to be in place.
Successive governors of Imo state build boulevards and street lights in Owerri.
Hotel entrepreneurs build hotels as they cash in on the young flesh of about 200,000 girls - and boys- in the six government universities and polytechnics seized by Owerri
Will Imo billionaires establish their industries in the same Owerri where successive governors of Imo state are literally coerced by some ignorant people in the state to “first develop state capital?
Governor Mbakwe acquired industrial layouts in Owerri, Orlu and Okigwe. Mbakwe left, new Imo state became an affair of only Owerri.
Mbakwe provided for or started modern water supply projects in Owerri, Orlu and Okigwe zones.
Aba, Umuahia and Orlu were the three official industrial hubs of old Imo state under Mbakwe.

Hope it won't lead to gas flaring, then we start having the same problem the south-south is having
|Re: Few Pics From Imo State by Yampotatocarrot(m): 5:19pm On May 19|
Sorry, you mean Imo poly is in Orlu, alongside those other institutions you mentioned?
And I was actually taking that guy serious. I've seen he's most probably just trolling.
|Re: Few Pics From Imo State by Yampotatocarrot(m): 5:24pm On May 19|
Looooooooooooooooooool, your first statement shows you haven't been to Abuja before. Lol, I laugh. As much as they try to sprinkle development to other states, the major bulk of the development occurs in Abuja. Which state has as much broad roads as Abuja. When you travel, then you'll understand
|Re: Few Pics From Imo State by kikake: 6:18pm On May 19|
The day government leaves Owerri and asphalts urban roads of Orlu, provides water supply system to Orlu, provides a full university in Orlu, you are expected to commit suicide that day.
Your father is a troll.

NwaforIgbo:my brother I wonder. Orlu has received its fair share. The guy you quoted does not know Orlu, many state and federal institutions and institutes are located in Orlu. But he will come here and be shouting as if Orlu is an abandoned town.
Orlu has more things than everyother town in it's level.
|Re: Few Pics From Imo State by kikake: 6:34pm On May 19|
I am very sorry for going too far to mention your father.
All my rant here is for development of entire Imo state. It’s abnormal for governments to concentrate on developing only Owerri.
|Re: Few Pics From Imo State by B2mario(m): 6:54pm On May 19|
This guy sucks. Are you sure you have been to Orlu before? Orlu has never been abandoned by any government of imo state except Ohakim government. All the past and present governor did something in Orlu but Rochas and Udenwa take the lead for now.
You said again that there is no tertiary education institution in Orlu; then my question is, what is your definition of tertiary education institution?
What about Bishop shanaghan polytechnic Orlu, Eastern Palm University Ogboko, Technical skill acquisition institute (TESAI) Orlu, Immigration training school Umuowa, School of nursing Amaigbo, School of nursing and midwifery Ogboko, school of nursing and health technology Okporo and Hezekiah University Umudi Nkwerre?
Please, I beg you in the name of God, leave Orlu alone.
|Re: Few Pics From Imo State by B2mario(m): 7:11pm On May 19|
The guy is a full time troll, don't take him serious any longer. He does not even know Orlu and the things that are situated there. I've pretended not to know Orlu and observe his actions for many years.
Bishop shanaghan polytechnic is in Orlu and was the former Imopoly campus which was established on part of the premises of the former TESAC now TESAI (the remaining part was converted to an institute)
|Re: Few Pics From Imo State by B2mario(m): 7:31pm On May 19|
Imo state is trying to spread development across it's sphere. Stop saying nonsense Oga. You've made people to see Imo as a state where all her developments concentrated only on Owerri. Okigwe as the 3rd largest town has an NTA station, a stadium and many good hotels.
All the LGAs of the state have a general hospital though not yet equipped, Ngor Okpala/Mbaise has the Imo international cargo airport, Ohaji/Egbema has many oil and gas industries and Imo polytechnic Umuagwo, Oru west has the Ama breweries Awo-mmama, Oguta has so many Imo state tourist centers and roads spread across many rural communities.
What again do you want? You want Rivers State government to abandon portharcourt and concentrate her development in Oyigbo or Omoku or you want Enugu state government to leave Enugu city and concentrate her development in Nsukka or Oji river.
Please leave our Orlu and Imo state alone, you are not doing us any good rather more harm.
|Re: Few Pics From Imo State by kikake: 7:46pm On May 19|
Former governor Ihedioha cancelled all tertiary education institutions, including Bishop Shanahan Polytechnic.
Bishop Shanahan Polytechnic does not exist anywhere in Orlu. It was one of those phantom polytechnics and universities hurriedly pronounced by Okorocha govt during the last days of his administration. Okorocha wanted to own Eastern palm university private, thus he concentrated his government development in Owerri to please Owerri to support him for third term and make him own Eastern Palm University private.
When he saw that Owerri refused to support his third term bid, he quickly declared many universities and polytechnics mostly in Orlu zone. Okorocha declared one university in Nkwere, declared Imo Poly Umuagwo a University.
Ihedioha govt committee advised that all those new universities and Polytechnic be closed, but IMSU be extended to Ogboko’s Eastern Palm University.
Ihedioha closed all the new universities and the polytechnics pronounced by Okorocha govt, including so called Bishop Shanahan Polytechnic, but went for expanding IMSU in Owerri.

can you listen to yourself? So Okorocha used just few days and hurriedly built gigantic blocks and termed them Universities and polytechnics? Those institutions took his government more than 5yrs. He started most in his 1st tenure. Please, stop misinforming people here. I knew when they were started just that I don't have pictures here I would have posted them then you and everyone here reading judge if such blocks could be built within months.
Bro., for the fact that the blocks are still existing the universities are existing too. Everybody knows that Ihedioha was too myopic and that was why they all joined hands and removed him through supreme court. All the higher institutions met the merits and were accredited by NUC. Ihedioha with his myopic thinking closed almost all of them thinking that he was fighting Rochas, with the aim of erasing Rochas' name from the history of Imo state. Not only in Orlu zone he did display his madness even in Owerri city and zone, he destroyed so many things in Owerri, he attempted pulling down Akachi tower and the various status in Heroes' square. Don't mention Ihedioha here, you and I know that he was a curse to imo state.
Today where is he? God is at work, Akachi di ya. Soon, Uzodimma will reopen those higher institutions. But that's by the way. If Bishop shanaghan polytechnic is no longer existing it will still go back to it's initial status, i.e, Imopoly Orlu campus or the person that is feeding you information about Orlu did not tell you?
Stop saying that there's no higher institution in Orlu, it's a pure lie. And stop speaking on our behalf, nobody appointed you our mouthpiece.
|Re: Few Pics From Imo State by kikake: 1:54pm On May 20|
The reasonable thing you said all through.
Ihedioha closed all of the new education institutions opened by Okorocha. Not almost all.
After which he started talk to expand Imsu in Owerri.
|Re: Few Pics From Imo State by B2mario(m): 8:36pm On May 20|
He did not close the one at Okporo
|Re: Few Pics From Imo State by kikake: 5:12am On May 21|
We are talking about the universities and polytechnics declared by former governor Okorocha during the last 3 or 4 months of his administration. There was none declared then at Okporo. Instead, a sign board reading: Imo state university Orlu, was placed during that period by Okorocha government at the site of the school of Hygiene at Okporo.
