I can't wait for these guys to finish their road works that seem to be going on forever; i understand lazy contractors (still stuck in the past) may be part of the problem here, so the state gov't should threaten them with court action if need be, so they can hurry the fuc/k up angry.

That is the space for the 23 storey building hotel that is in court between Owerri natives and Imo State government. Its a no go area.

A third (independent) party should determine the cost/compensation due, and the 'owners' should be compensated accordingly; unless there's more to the issue than that ?

Did you visit Oguta? I've not gone home recently but when I post pictures of Oguta after Xmass many people will be astonished. Oguta is like a high brow area in any city. We also have a standard golf course and gulf club.

^^^Last time i was there was ages ago; the pics are the ones i found in my 'Imo' folder, and the one you're refering to is of the golf course (though the grass looks to be in need of a good trim undecided).

What most of our cities/towns need -in the interim- is just a few cosmetic touches, and they'd look as good as new.

Owerri has a special place in Nigeria as a place where Hotels will flourish. It's in between major business cities (Onitcha, Enugu, Asaba, PH, Aba) all of which except Enugu lack quality hotels.
On top of that Imo state returnees are a huge source of income. If Imo is meant to be a tourist spot so be it. I hope he's adding attractions along side these hotels.
Re: Few Pics From Imo State by LordNaya: 10:27am On Dec 15, 2012
@ and Ikengawo pls post more pictures of owerri. Indeed Owerri is a very beautiful city, indeed imo state state is one of the leading areas in africa and the brightest star in West Africa. Pls more pictures.
Re: Few Pics From Imo State by Nobody: 10:59am On Dec 15, 2012
But there aren't much tourist attractions for now. Unless he plans to focus on such after the hotels. I know about his project in oguta lake,but am not yet impressed with the work done so far.

A modern railway system connecting owerri to ph will be of immense economic benefit to both cities,'cause alot of people would want to live in relatively peaceful city of owerri and work in industrialised ph city.

Ohakim replies Rochas: ‘I left N13.5bn for completion of Oguta Wonder Lake project’

Former governor of Imo State, Chief Ikedim Ohakim has said out of the N18billion bond obtained from the capital market and tied to the construction of the Oguta Wonderlake Resort, N13.5billion was left behind by his administration for the completion of the project.

In the wake of the highly publicised plans by Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State to probe Ohakim, more disturbing revelations are finding their way to public domain. Apparently unmoved, the former governor of the state made the disclosure yesterday during the public presentation of the book, “Democracy by military tanks” written by Dr. Ethelbert Okere.

He tasked Governor Rochas Okorocha on transparency and integrity. Ohakim stated that out of the N18billion bond obtained from the capital market and tied to the construction of the Oguta Wonderlake Resort, N13.5billion was left behind by his administration for the completion of the project. Said he: “Last week when I paid a visit to the site of the Oguta Wonderlake Resort, I was shocked to find the place overgrown by weeds and the N13.5billion no where to be found.”

He informed the audience that a similar project was started by Governor Godswill Akpabio’s predecessor, yet Akpabio completed it and the same facility had given work to over 3000 natives of the state. “Landmark projects and initiatives must not be allowed to suffer on the altar of primitive politics.” The book presentation was well attended by political bigwigs, royal fathers and women groups in the state.

He borrowed after emptying the treasury.

Did he also kept a sum for repayment and debt servicing?

Ohakim, thanks for the information. Now we know better.

this anambra - imo bickering did not start on nairaland. it is probably ingrained in the two groups. back at ekpoma, we had to get some igbo lecturers to help calm the rancor. it all started with the eze ndi igbo title. the two contestants were of imo and anambra origins. after the imo students have finish voting, while anambra students were still voting, some imo student thugs went and snatched the ballots thereby, rendering the election inconclusive. it was a real problem as there was no heirachy then. the next thing we know, we came to our I.S.A (igbo students association) meeting, to realise that some of my unscrupulous anambra power grabs has changed the name to ''oha na eze''. imo students will not have any of it. it was a problem also when we were to contribute for the welcomming party we usually host for new student. long and short, before long, we had divested from the general group which had even students of delta and rivers origins to anambra student assoc, imo students assoc and so on. one thing i never forgot was when we were doing our meeting as anambra students assoc, if we were donating money for anything, we will suffix our donations with '' ihe a aburo ogbako ndi imo '' grin grin grin .

Bros, why you dey blow grammar to reply a certified mad man? That ediot Ileki-idi has refused to take his medications for a while.

If Owerri is ghetto, let him produce evidence that ANY southwest slums they call city is more beautiful than Owerri.grin grin grin
I hope the ediot knows that Lagos is not a south west city nor state.Lagos was the capital of Nigeria until very recently 1991 and has remained the commercial capital since then. Thus the Federal government mindlessly spent the resources derived from other parts of the country to develop our Federal Capital, Lagos.
Lets enjoy this thread and ignore the tribal ediot as he was ignored in the Enugu thread.

Imo state, Dec. 25, 2012.
Folks, Rochas Okorocha led government focuses only on speedy completion of development projects in Owerri alone; other areas in Imo state - Okigwe, Orlu - are heavily suffering dust, ugly sites of partially knocked down houses, blocked roads/drains, cut electricity supplies, further under development, go-slow/endless construction works. Economic activities in the once booming cities of Okigwe and Orlu have been paralyzed for more than a year now. Mass emigration from Okigwe and Orlu to the state capital and other cities is ongoing. There is more than the ordinary eye can see.

Unfortunately I'm not a Rochas apologist nor did I travel. However what the guy wrote shows that he is either being mischievous or sponsored. The Owerri/Orlu road has no single bad spot from Owerri to Orlu. The Mbaise road is not so bad. Okigwe road is good up till Akabo where the road has degenerated but bear in mind that these roads are federal roads. I therefore commend the FG for the good state of federal roads in Imo with only 3 exceptions which are Owerri-Okigwe, Ihiala-Orlu-Anara and Owerri-Aba . Owerri-PH is under construction and is ok.

People do not know the difference between tuition-free and payless education. It means that Government pays for the lectures and teachers up keep but you still pay for some other non-tuition requirements like textbooks and boarding fees.

Imo State is not as rich as Rivers and Akwa-Ibom States, so I already made it clear much earlier that if after 5years Amaechi and Akpabio have not completed half their State roads, I don't see any miracle that will make Imo complete theirs in less than 4 years. I never expected the quality of Rivers roads in Imo. Maybe Akwaibom and Enugu quality is achievable only in Owerri urban. I also expect some borroings from the Government. Even Rivers, Lagos and Akwaibom are borrowing inspite of high income.

I'll score Rochas around May of 2013 if some of his infrastructural plans are materialized. If you check Amaechi/Fashola/Akpabio by 2008 December, you'll understand what I mean.
